Law Clerk


Accepting Applications through November 8, 2023

We’re looking for highly motivated, creative, and collaborative law students to join our projects-oriented law firm for the spring semester 2024. 

We are a fast-growing national boutique law firm devoted exclusively to helping clients solve problems involving the nation’s most complex and high-profile projects in environmental, conservation, real estate, land use, infrastructure, project financing, airports, rail, transit, tribal, and renewable energy law.  While the Firm is organized into these primary practice areas, we pride ourselves on complex, collaborative work, and law clerks will regularly work with colleagues across all of our practice areas and with attorneys from all of our offices.  

Founded in 2003 to provide an alternative to the “business of law as usual,” our Firm’s focus remains on our colleagues as well as our clients.  We believe that when you enjoy working with a great team, know that your contributions make a difference, and are able to pursue a fulfilling career without hindering personal life responsibilities and choices, your professional life can and should be more enjoyable and gratifying.  The work we do is rewarding, and we are tremendously proud of the superior services our team is able to provide to our public, non-profit, tribal, and private sector clients.

Our law clerks are key members of the Firm, engaging in various substantive legal work on matters across the country while gaining valuable experience and training and insight into the legal profession. Clerks are integrated into the Firm from day one through our mentoring program and are strongly encouraged to participate in our weekly practice area meetings and other Firm events. 

Position details:  Our law clerks can work at one of the Firm’s offices in Denver, San Francisco, Washington D.C., or New York. We expect our spring clerks to work between 15 and 20 hours a week during the spring academic semester. This position will be paid an hourly rate of $35.00 per hour. 


The Firm is actively committed to fostering the principles of diversity, inclusion, and equal employment opportunity. We do not discriminate against applicants or employees on the basis of age, race, color, religion, creed, national origin, ancestry, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sex, sexual orientation, sexual identity, disability, marital status, military status, or any other status protected by federal, state, or local law.

Please be aware that Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell requires all employees to be vaccinated for COVID-19.  This position will require the successful candidate to show proof that they are fully vaccinated for COVID-19.  Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell is an equal opportunity employer and will engage in the interactive process to determine if a reasonable accommodation is appropriate to those individuals who are unable to be vaccinated consistent with federal, state, and local law.
