Vinson & Elkins LLP is a global law firm with more than 650 lawyers in 15 offices worldwide. The depth and breadth of our lawyers’ experience, combined with the responsiveness and efficiencies of the firm’s global reach, enables Vinson & Elkins to advise and serve clients from start-up, to the negotiating table and boardroom, before legislative and regulatory bodies, in the courtroom, and beyond.
As a highly ranked and one of the world’s largest law firms, Vinson & Elkins has both an extraordinary opportunity and a special responsibility to maintain a culture that nurtures diverse interests, backgrounds, and perspectives — inclusive of race, ethnicity, gender/gender-identity, age, sexual orientation, religion, or physical handicap. At V&E diversity is more than just an aspiration; it is a guiding principle that propels us into the future. V&E is honored that our efforts and commitment to diversity and inclusion have earned us widespread recognition.
Because our success depends upon recruiting and developing talented and diverse lawyers, Vinson & Elkins is dedicated to expanding our pipeline by providing enrichment programs and financial support to students ranging from middle school through law school and beyond. As part of our commitment to diversity and pipeline initiatives, Vinson & Elkins established the Law Preview Scholarship Program, recognizing the importance of early preparation and the existence of invisible barriers to success.
