Stephen Scott, an inductee of the West Virginia Executive Magazine's Lawyers and Leaders Class of 2019, joined our New Lawyers Group (NLG) in 2020. The NLG provides our newest lawyers with the opportunity to gain exposure to different practice areas and lawyering styles before making a commitment to a specific practice. Individuals in the NLG may focus on a particular area of practice, or compare practices, during their first year with Jones Day.
While in law school, Stephen participated in the United States Supreme Court Clinic, which Jones Day oversees and directs its operation. He worked on appeals before the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. Notably, he assisted in the preparation of merits briefs and oral argument for Dawson v. Steager (a case involving the intergovernmental tax immunity doctrine) before the United States Supreme Court.
