During that time, Scott attended law school, graduating with honors from Loyola Law School, where he was a Dean's Scholar. Scott edited Loyola's Entertainment Law Review Board and served on the school's Moot Court Honors Board. He completed a judicial externship for Ninth Circuit Judge Kim M. Wardlaw and also published several articles on constitutional law.
Scott started his legal career at the global law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, where he worked closely with lawyers across the firm, from Los Angeles to London. He was a key part of the team of appellate lawyers that upheld the biggest judgment ever issued against an individual trustee (Uzyel v. Kadisha, 188 Cal. App. 4th 866 (2010)). He also argued an immigration case, pro bono, in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and convinced the court to vacate his client's deportation order based on the ineffective assistance of the client's prior lawyer (Baghdasaryan v. Holder, Case No. 06-71851 (9th Cir. Feb. 25, 2011)).
