What makes it so great?
To mark its 100th birthday, the Seattle-based law firm doled out $10,000 to committees in each of its 16 local offices and let them decide where to donate the money. The firm offers a two-month paid sabbatical after 10 years of service.
Perkins Coie’s summer associate program provides varied work opportunities and social events that are designed to promote interaction among summer associates, attorneys and staff. Our summer associate program is our primary source of new associate hires. We principally recruit second-year law students and occasionally hire pre-clerkship third-year law students for our domestic offices.
