A Great Firm to Learn

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.

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.

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.

Good Pay but Bad Hierarchy

Although the firm is very large, management should highly consider restructuring the ""chain of command"" system. This system slows down work efficiency and I was very unhappy with it.

I was very pleased with the pay and benefits. This law firm is also great for networking and brand building.

The firm is very large and uses an extreme hierarchy based system. Also, if there are any problems, you have to go through the ""chain of command"" to get any solutions.

Great Firm and Great Social Justice.

I would say come here if you want a big law firm that has a heart for social justice. But I would also advise to make sure you know the practice areas that are involved and that you are interested in those areas before applying.

This firm is a great fit for me. My focus in law school was on agribusiness law which is a very narrow field of practice. This firm is a leader in that field and I was able to secure a job in that area. The firm has a large list of agriculture clients and the issues are very complex and large. The firm also has a great social justice program and supports many pro bono areas such as LGBT rights and poverty. I feel very proud to work for a large firm that does that.

This is a large firm but the areas of practice are rather focused. It was a plus for me but would not be for every new lawyer. I would suggest another firm if you do not want to practice in the areas this firm offers. Also since the areas are so focused, it is not a great way to network for future jobs.
