2021 1L Summer Program Opportunities (TCDIP and LCLD)


Job Description

The Minneapolis office of Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP is proud to participate in a 1L diversity program that combines the Twin Cities Diversity in Practice (TCDIP) 1L Summer Rotation Clerkship with the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) 1L Scholars Program. Our 1L program offers a unique summer associate opportunity that combines a traditional law firm clerkship with experience working in-house with a corporate law department. In 2021, our corporate law department partners will include 3M, Boston Scientific, Cargill, Intact Insurance Group, Target and Wells Fargo. In addition to a paid summer associate position with a “rotation” (typically 3-4 weeks) at a client, participants will have an opportunity to attend networking receptions and educational seminars through TCDIP and LCLD.

Applications are now being accepted for our 1L program and will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Candidates should include a cover letter, resume, law school and undergraduate transcripts, and a writing sample. The cover letter should reference ‘1L TCDIP/LCLD Program’ and should briefly explain what the candidate hopes to gain from participation in our 1L diversity program.
