Vernon | David has two programs for law students: a law clerk program and an externship program.

Law Clerk Program

Every year Vernon | David hires two to four student law clerks, who gain legal experience by helping a practicing attorney. This entry-level position is geared toward law students in Romania. (Foreign law students, please see the Law School Externship Program section.)

Hiring law clerks is an important recruiting mechanism for us. We encourage our law clerks to stay with us and climb higher on the professional ladder by giving them interesting and challenging projects and encouraging them to work in each practice area and, if possible, with each different lawyer.

If an associate position becomes available, we prefer to hire from among our current group of law clerks.

We choose clerk candidates from the top 25 percent of their class, with excellent research and writing skills and personalities consistent with our friendly, collegial firm environment. If you are interested in becoming a law clerk, please send a cover letter and current resume in English by fax to +4021 311 56 50 in attention to the HR Department or by e-mail by using the form on the contact page, selecting “office (general)” as the recipient.

Law Student Externship Program

The Vernon | David externship program gives law students practical experience and the chance to earn credit towards graduation. Students do real work on active cases, spending substantial one-on-one time with partners and associates. Each student gets feedback on work assignments, a mid-term review, and a final formal evaluation.

Although Vernon | David currently has a working relationship with Thomas M. Cooley Law School in the United States, we accept externs from any foreign country; our externship program is not limited to the United States.
