To give you an insight into what DLA Piper is like, we run two placement schemes: one at Easter, the other in summer. Each lasts two weeks and will give you experience of two different practice groups. During the two weeks, you'll meet a range of people across the firm through a variety of talks and social events.
We firmly believe that these schemes are the best way to decide whether a career in commercial law at DLA Piper is right for you. You will get as much out of the scheme as you put in: its purpose is as much for you to assess us as it is for us to assess you.
The schemes usually take place between June and August and are paid.
To apply for one of our schemes, please complete an online application via our graduate website www.dlapipergraduates.co.uk
Deadline: 15 January 2017
We do not recruit on a rolling basis and will let all applicants know the the outcome of their application after this date.
Please note that you should apply for a scheme in the office where you would like to do your training contract.
You will be assessed via a one day business game. The business game is a great way for you to sharpen your commercial skills and candidates are always telling us how much they enjoyed it and found it rewarding.
