Larson • King is committed to building and developing a diverse group of attorneys and employees. We are in the business of solving problems and know that diversity helps solve problems. Our firm is an active member of Twin Cities Diversity in Practice (TCDIP), a consortium of leading law firms and corporations dedicated to attracting, recruiting, advancing and retaining lawyers of color. Two current law clerks and one associate have joined us through TCDIP's 1L program. Larson • King is also an active participant in the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity, a national organization of chief legal officers from Fortune 500 companies and law firm managing partners dedicated to improving diversity in the legal profession.
We know we need to work harder and do better to improve our diversity. We are regular participants in several programs that advance our goal of building a firm and a culture rich in varied attributes, background, experience, gender, race, sexual orientation and talent. These programs include the Minnesota Minority Recruiting Conference and the Twin Cities Diversity in Practice 1L Summer Rotation Clerkship Program. The Summer Clerkship Program exposes promising first year law students to private practice at Larson • King and also to in-house practice with our valued client, 3M Company.
Larson • King also supports diversity initiatives in the broader community. The firm funds a college scholarship for a local high school student of color through the Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation and their Career Investment Scholarship program. We also assist the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota in their work with newly arriving refugees by providing funding for their summer Hmong law clerk.
