Twin Cities Diversity in Practice Offers the 1L Summer Rotation Clerkship Program

Gain experience at both a law firm AND a corporation! First year law students now have a unique summer clerkship opportunity that combines a traditional law firm clerkship with experience working in an in-house corporate law department. Twin Cities Diversity in Practice is a collaboration of law firms and corporate law departments seeking to enhance the diversity of the legal profession.

This program connects top legal employers with 1L students of color. Students will have the opportunity to work at one of the nation's best law firms. As part of the law firm clerkship, students will spend one "rotation" working in the law department of a major corporation. Not only will the clerk get valuable legal training essential for success at most law firms, the clerk will gain "real world" insights into the fast-paced environment of a corporate law department.
