An American Business and Litigation Law Firm is accepting applications for our 2L Patent Prosecution Scholarship in the Seattle office. The scholarship recipient will work in a paid summer associate position with our Patent Prosecution team and receive $15,000 scholarship for their third year tuition and expenses.

Your Journey Starts Here
We want future colleagues who spend their summers with us to get the full experience of working at An American Business and Litigation Law Firm. That includes doing complex work for market-leading clients alongside colleagues who care about your interests and who have expertise and insight that can help you learn how to build a practice. It also means joining a community that values excellent work and client service, teamwork, fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture, giving back to our communities, and leading rich personal lives outside the office.

So, what does that actually look like? It's doing everything from drafting motions and contracts to assisting with pro bono matters to preparing for and attending client meetings, depositions, negotiations, and trials. It's getting legal and skills training from our practice and industry groups and being paired with mentors based on your particular goals and interests. And it's getting to know your colleagues at work and beyond, through affinity groups, events like our Summer Associate retreat, and countless conversations over lunch and coffee.

By the end of the summer, you'll know what it's like to be a first-year associate at An American Business and Litigation Law Firm-and a member of our community. Come join us!
