2L Summer Associate – Minneapolis, MN
Briggs and Morgan, a prominent Midwest law firm, is seeking 2L applicants for its 2020 Summer Associate Class. Law students who will have completed their second year of law school before the summer of 2020 are eligible to apply.
During our 10-week summer associate program, our summer associates have an opportunity to work in both commercial and litigation departments of the firm. Our summer associates receive assignments that are comparable to junior associate-level work. An assignment coordinator assigns projects and gauges work flow which ensures each summer associate experiences a variety of work from all areas of the firm. We also emphasize personal initiative and encourage summer associates to contact attorneys directly to obtain assignments in areas that interest them to help them determine what area of practice is the best fit.
Each summer associate is assigned a mentor who serves as an important resource during the summer. Formal evaluations are held three times during the course of the summer and are conducted by Recruiting Committee and Evaluation Committee members. Feedback is given on each project a summer associate completes during the summer with the goal of supporting the summer associates in growing their writing, research, and analytical skills. Briggs and Morgan hosts several social events throughout the summer to give summer associates an opportunity to get to know many others at the firm.
If you are a law student enrolled at a Minnesota school, we encourage you to apply within your law school’s Symplicity process. Briggs and Morgan will be preselecting students through that process.
If you are currently enrolled at an out-of-state school, please submit your application materials (cover letter, resume, law school transcript, and writing sample) by clicking here.
