Awards and recognitions

Venable seeks qualified law students whose personal and academic achievements demonstrate a commitment to excellence and a commitment to the practice of law.

Candidates should submit their resumes and transcripts through the career services office or to the proper legal recruiting contact for the office in which they are interested. If they are invited to the firm to interview, they will be contacted by the firm's Professional Development & Recruiting Department to schedule a mutually convenient in-office interview.

Screening interviews are held for qualified candidates either on campus or in the office. Eligible candidates may be invited for a call-back visit to meet with additional members of the firm.

The firm reimburses interview expenses for candidates who are called back for interviews. The firm does not reimburse candidates for preliminary interviews. The Hiring Committee makes an effort to get back to each candidate as quickly as possible.

Diversity

The firm looks at its Summer Associate Program as an important source for associate hiring. Hence the firm has designed the program to create a factual working atmosphere for the associates who work under the supervision of experienced lawyers, guided by a strong mentoring program. A chosen team of partners and associates advise, guide and offer critiques of the work done, ensuring that the associates are exposed to more people and practice areas and get an idea of what Venable is all about.

Summer associates are expected to complete 11 to 15 assignments during the summer, and typically spend about six hours a day on billable work. Although each office has a slightly different assignment process, the firm makes sure its summer associates receive work in the practice areas that are of interest to them. Training programs cover topics like writing and negotiations, and there are also plenty of informal one-on-one trainings with attorneys they work with. Students are also provided opportunities to attend hearings, spending the day in court or sitting in on a transaction closing.

Upon the completion of each assignment, summer associates are evaluated by the assigning attorney. In addition, a partner member of the local office hiring committee meets with each summer associate for a mid-summer and end-of-summer review.

It's not all work alone, Venable endeavors to strike a balance between work and social events for the duration of the summer program. Informal dinners, happy hours, and lunches are some of the events that will allow students to get to know our attorneys. The firm currently has summer programs in its Baltimore, Los Angeles, New York, Tysons Corner and Washington, DC offices.
