Opportunities at V&E!

August 29, 2018

$25,000 Diversity Fellowships for Rising 2Ls

We are excited to announce an increase in our annual 2L Diversity Fellowships to $25,000 for each award! Top students of color and LGBTQ students are encouraged to apply, and awarded students also receive a summer clerkship in one of our U.S. offices. V&E Fellowships are another way we support our commitment to inclusion in the profession and at V&E. Applications for this year’s Fellowships are available online through August 24, 2018. Each applicant will need to update his/her profile and upload a diversity statement (500 words or less) describing how his/her unique experiences will contribute to our practice of law. Contact Amber Carter with questions ( or 713.758.2437).


Public Interest Split Program

As part of our Summer Associate Program, V&E offers Public Interest Split opportunities to support law students who have a passion for public service. Awarded students will work at V&E for half of the Summer Program, and for the second half, we sponsor Summer Associates while working for a public interest organization located in one of our U.S. offices. Students continue to receive V&E’s full Summer Associate salary ($3,654/week) for a maximum of six weeks at a public interest organization. (Government agencies are not included in this program.) Contact Amber Carter with questions ( or 713.758.2437).


Entry-Level Hiring

Our Houston office is accepting applications for candidates interested in private equity, mergers and acquisitions, capital markets transactions, oil & gas transactional matters, and general corporate law to join V&E as an incoming new attorney in the Fall of 2019.  Interested applicants (current 3Ls or LLM Common Law students) may submit a cover letter, resume, and unofficial transcript via our online application.  Click here to apply.


Why Choose V&E?

In addition to active participation in substantive cases and deal work for sophisticated clients, V&E Summer Associates receive hands-on mentoring from lawyers who care about their development. Learn more about our culture in this brief video.
