Stinson Leonard Street offers attorneys fulfilling employment opportunities and a rewarding work environment. A law firm is only as good as the attorneys who comprise it. We understand that the reason clients select Stinson Leonard Street for their most complex cases and sophisticated transactions is that we have extremely talented lawyers working here who are dedicated to representing their interests. The practice of law—and law firms themselves—are constantly changing. Responding to opportunities for change and encouraging open communication has contributed to our attorneys’ long-term satisfaction.
Recruiting attorneys who already have experience practicing at another law firm—as in-house counsel for a corporation or in the public sector—is an important way for our firm to meet its ongoing needs as we grow and evolve.

Our firm is committed to providing excellent client service in order to be the best client choice for what we do. In support of these commitments, the firm has established University Stinson Leonard to implement and institutionalize firm-wide professional development programs for attorneys and staff. University Stinson Leonard combines practice-oriented training with a focus on practical skills and career development. For associates, the curriculum supports both the transition to practice and the basic lawyering skills within the associate's practice area, with customized learning tracks throughout the associate's path to partnership. The firm supports every attorney in continued growth in experience and career development. University Stinson Leonard offers specialized and advanced programs in substantive areas of the law, as the firm's practice division chairs, client needs and/or business climates indicate. Many of these programs will fulfill attorneys' obligations for continuing legal education.
The PACES (Performance, Assimilation, Communication, Excellence and Service) program assists new hires in skillfully navigating administrative channels, easily accessing our extensive resources, and clearly understanding the culture and structure of our firm. This program provides the training, resources and information needed by new employees to foster professional and personal success at Stinson Leonard Street. All new employees will be contacted periodically throughout their first year by a staff member who will provide insight and direction, facilitate additional training, and ensure you’re positioned for success.
Our firm has always been a preferred destination for judicial law clerks. A significant number of the attorneys who practice with us have prior experience as a judicial law clerk, either with state or federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court. We view the judicial clerkship experience as invaluable training for attorneys, particularly for those who practice in litigation.
