Review:

"A Great Firm to Learn"

Former Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Try your best and keep your nose to the grindstone. There is a lot of work to do but people will help out if you simply ask.

Pros : I was an intern at Dorsey & Whitney LLP for 6 months. I learned a lot of valuable knowledge and was able to get my hands on my first few cases.
Cons : It is very tough to get a permanent position here because nobody wants to leave. If you can get in the door, it's great.
