Dear Ms. Bowling:
I am writing to express my interest in a summer clerk position with Rothgerber & Appel for the
summer of 2009. I am currently a second-year law student at Saint Louis University School of Law
and plan to move to Denver and take the Colorado Bar Exam upon graduation in May 2010. I am
familiar with your firm’s well-respected real estate practice and am also impressed by the diverse
areas in which you litigate.
I am primarily interested in civil litigation and real estate law. This past summer, I served as a faculty
fellow for Professor Peter Salsich at Saint Louis University School of Law where I gained valuable
insight into the practical aspects of real estate law and the issues faced by practitioners on a daily
basis. Additionally, prior to law school, I worked for two years as a legal assistant for a small firm
where I assisted the attorneys in all aspects of their practice. The litigation that your office engages in
has a particularly strong appeal to me and I believe that with my experience I can be an asset to your
firm and its clients.
I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss my qualifications when I am in Denver
in November. I will contact you next week concerning the possibility of arranging an interview. In the
mean time, if you require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you
for your consideration.
Very truly yours,
Roberta M. Short
