Legal departments are increasingly pushing outside law firms to boost diversity efforts. Just last week one industry report found that in-house leaders are letting go of firms that fail to meet expectations. But Adobe Systems Inc.‘s legal team is looking to build diversity in-house and in partnered firms in a new, more collaborative way.
This summer, the department will have its first two 1L diversity fellows, two law students who will split their time between Adobe’s offices and a Bay Area office of either Perkins Coie or Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer. The idea came from Lisa Konie, senior director of legal operations at Adobe.
