Shauro Bagchi, an attorney in Maslon's Business & Securities Group and co-chair of Maslon's summer associate program, is quoted in the June 20, 2016 Minnesota Lawyer article titled, "Summertime, and associates are busy." The article highlights a number of summer associate programs—essentially 10-week tryouts for law students—in a variety of medium to large firms throughout the Twin Cities, sharing that law firms "choose these would-be associates carefully, encourage interaction with associates and partners, and give them as many professional experiences as possible."
Shauro outlines the breadth of experiences Maslon gives its summers, including writing and researching, panel discussions on topics summer associates express interest in, mock oral arguments, and happy hours with affinity groups. He states "Our biggest asset is our people, and given the sophisticated work that we do, we often have to spend a lot of time in stressful situations with each other." He adds, "'We want to evaluate if these are the types of people we want to spend these types of situations with,' and vice versa."
