Pipeline Programs and Partnerships
At Adams and Reese, we know that having varied perspectives help generate better ideas to solve the complex problems of a changing – and increasingly diverse world.

1L Summer Associate Opportunity

Adams and Reese recognizes that first year law students (1Ls) may enhance their law school experience by gaining knowledge, seeking insight, and building relationships during a summer associate program within a law firm. Adams and Reese has designed the 1L Summer Associate Program to offer students opportunities to work on existing matters for clients, receive mentorship from practicing attorneys and create networking opportunities with 2Ls during the summer associate programs.

We invite all 1L students who are in good standing in their first year at an ABA-accredited law school to apply for the Adams and Reese 1L Summer Associate Program. Adams and Reese is an Equal Opportunity Employer and welcomes applications from all eligible applicants regardless of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity / gender expression, disability status, or any other identity.

Applications will be accepted through January 31, 2024.

 NALP/Street Law Legal Diversity Pipeline Program
Street Law logoIn 2021, Adams and Reese joined with the National Association for Law Placement, and launched a Street Law program through our Mobile office. Recognizing the need for earlier education about careers in the legal profession to create a true pipeline for diverse lawyers, the goal of this program is to teach high school students about the law and legal careers, encourage them to pursue legal careers, and offer support in this pursuit. Attorneys from our Mobile office partnered with LeFlore Magnet High School throughout the school year, and are already anxiously planning our next iteration of the program. In 2022 we will continue the Street Law Program in Mobile, and will expand the program with a partnership with a high school in New Orleans. Learn more about Street Law.
