Gray Plant Mooty 1L Minority Summer Associate Program
As part of our Affirmative Action Plan, the Minneapolis office of Gray Plant Mooty recruits 1L racial minority law students to participate in its Summer Associate Program. For 2017, Gray Plant Mooty’s Minneapolis office will hire one 1L summer associate. During the approximately 10 weeks of summer, our 1L summer associate will participate fully in our Summer Associate Program. Work assignments may come from any of our practice groups and will usually involve substantive legal research, analysis, and writing. In addition to the work aspects of a law firm, our summer associates often take on a pro bono project and participate in various social activities that allow each of them to get to know the attorneys of Gray Plant Mooty in more informal settings.
Twin Cities Diversity in Practice’s 1L Summer Rotation Clerkship
Gray Plant Mooty’s Minneapolis office will hire one 1L racial minority law student through the Twin Cities Diversity in Practice’s 1L Summer Rotation Clerkship. The same hiring criteria used for the Gray Plant Mooty 1L Minority Summer Associate Program is used for this program. This 10 week program provides 1L students with an opportunity to work at a law firm and spend one “rotation” (typically 4 weeks) working in the law department of a major corporation. The summer clerk in this program will participate fully in our Summer Associate Program while at our firm. Additional details regarding our summer program can be found above. For additional information on this program, please visit the Twin Cities Diversity in Practice website.
Interested 1L racial minority law students should submit a cover letter, resume, undergraduate transcript, law school transcript with first semester grades (updated later as necessary), and legal writing sample. Please reference in your letter if you are interested in applying for the GPM Minority Summer Associate Program, the Twin Cities Diversity in Practice Summer Rotation Clerkship, or both programs.
