Our Summer Internship is designed to give you insight to what DLA Piper is really like. Our in-person programme is three weeks in duration, commencing with a week-long induction programme held at our London office.

This induction provides an advanced introduction to the legal sector and the firms practice groups. It also builds your professional skills and workplace capability. Throughout the induction there will be opportunities to hear from and network with senior members of the firm.

You'll spend your second and third weeks of the Summer Internship undertaking work experience placements across two of our practice groups in your chosen office location. Before you start on the programme we'll ascertain and try to allocate your placements based on your preferences.

This year we will be recruiting interns into the following UK offices:

  • Birmingham
  • Edinburgh
  • Leeds
  • London
  • North West (Manchester & Liverpool office combined programme)
  • Sheffield

At the end of the Summer Internship, you'll be assessed for a place on our Graduate Programme (Training Contract) in the office where you complete your placement.
