Applicants for the Summer Associate Program may also apply for V&E’s 1L Diversity Fellowship by submitting a diversity statement through the same online portal. V&E’s Diversity Fellowship application is open to all 1Ls, and awarded students receive $10,000 and a clerkship at one of V&E’s offices in Austin, Dallas, Houston, New York, San Francisco, or Washington for the summer of 2021. Law students must attend and be in good standing at an American Bar Association accredited law school. Read about our 2020 1L Diversity Fellowship recipients here.

V&E Summer Associates do substantive work in a variety of practice areas, have direct client contact, and work directly with accomplished attorneys who care about their success. A variety of social, community, and pro bono activities give V&E summer associates opportunities to get to know their colleagues in a relaxed environment. The 10-week program for 2021 is May 17-July 23.
