Professional Development

Fostering Meaningful Growth

At Vinson & Elkins, we invest in the professional and personal growth and wellbeing of our lawyers, offering a comprehensive suite of in-house learning and development programs and external resources.

Learning and development at our firm centers on the qualities that connect our people: delivering excellent work and service, handling complex matters, succeeding as a team, and caring for our clients, colleagues, and communities.

From their very first day, our lawyers have access to everything they need to grow and thrive: practical and progressive work experience, early client interaction, dedicated mentoring, frequent feedback, individualized career planning, and a formal annual evaluation process — along with a wide variety of tools and resources.

These include hundreds of internal CLEs, on-demand e-learning, skills-based workshops, one-on-one coaching with leading experts, professional, technical, and practice-specific trainings, and more.
