Experience as a judicial clerk is invaluable for new lawyers. In each starting class of associates, we have lawyers who join us after serving clerkships in federal and state courts across the country.
In recognition of the enhanced value that former judicial clerks provide the firm and our clients, V&E pays additional compensation to former judicial clerks and gives appropriate salary and partnership class credit.
We encourage you to explore your interest in judicial clerkships. During our summer program, we host judicial clerkship panel presentations in each office and provide access to our online Judicial Clerkship Directory so that you may utilize V&E lawyers as a resource when considering clerkship applications.

There is no better way for a junior attorney to learn how and why judges rule the way they do than through a judicial clerkship. Clerkships offer a unique window into judicial realism that will make you a better advocate and counselor to your clients.
