The Adobe + Perkins Coie Two Steps Ahead Scholars Program (Palo Alto only) provides a diverse first-year law student with the unique opportunity to spend part of the summer in the Palo Alto office of Perkins Coie, and part of the summer in-house at Adobe' Silicon Valley headquarters.
Perkins Coie is committed to the growth and development of legal communities that more accurately reflect the diversity of our communities at large. We believe in developing relationships and investing in people—which is why we’ve partnered with our client, Adobe, to create this unique program. As a Two Steps Ahead Scholar, you will gain experience with a variety of projects and transactions related to a range of legal practice areas that drive the efficiency and effectiveness of the legal teams at Perkins Coie and Adobe. Best of all, you will routinely engage with many legal professionals and staff at both companies!
The Two Steps Ahead Scholar will be selected based on the following criteria:
- Candidates must be a first-year law student in good standing pursuing the degree of Juris Doctor at an ABA accredited law school.
- Candidates must have a strong academic record as well as experience that demonstrates great promise for a successful career in the legal profession.
- Candidates must meaningfully contribute to the diversity of the law school student body and, upon entering the legal profession, the legal community.
