Judicial Clerks

Rewarding Experience

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.

    A judicial clerkship gives a first-year lawyer unique insight into our court system and sharpens writing, advocacy, and analytical skills.
