I enjoyed the learning aspect of the scheme gaining an insight into the different practice areas. The programme provided many learning opportunities and allowed me to connect with people from different universities across the UK. It allowed to me to ask burning questions I had about the legal profession that were answered with detailed insight.
I really enjoyed all aspects of the First Year Insight Programme. There were a variety of different activities, that were never repetitive. It was also really amazing to meet so many different people, from trainees to partners, to other students like myself. I actually in a way wished it had been longer, simply because of how much I enjoyed myself.
I incredibly enjoyed the First Year Insight Programme at DLA Piper. The programme as a whole was put together professionally by the Graduate Recruitment Team and was filled with a variety of activities and talks from current graduates, trainees and partners which all helped to give a better insight into the types of works the firm deals with and the clients they work with.
I had never had an experience like the First Year Insight Programme at DLA Piper. None of the other law firms I have attended were so engaging and were able to give such a window into what life would really be like as a trainee there. As well as that, they treated us so well and we got lots of free food!
I really enjoyed the Insight Programme at DLA Piper, there were so many interesting talks and workshops from a range of trainees, associates and partners at the firm. Each event was really informative and engaging and the range of activities were really exciting, as well as the opportunities to socialise during breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The variety of sessions offered ensured I enjoyed the 3 day insight scheme greatly. No two were the same. This kept me engaged throughout the programme. The insight was packed full of valuable information and experience I could not have got through a text book or article! The hands on workshops ranged from Speed Networking with associates to a Corporate workshop that highlighted the multifaceted role of a commercial lawyer.
I really enjoyed the insight programme. It was very well organised and highly enjoyable with a variety of activities and presentation. In addition, everyone there were very relaxed and the other student were very friendly and sociable which all added to this wonderful experience. I did indeed enjoy the insight.
It was an incredible experience; I received a great insight into the firm and the legal profession, and met amazing people who I will definitely keep in touch with! A huge thanks to the Graduate Recruitment team, who couldn't have done a better job.
I enjoyed the insight very much and am so glad to have been a part of it. I met a lot of amazing people, some who inspire me and some who I will be friends with forever. There was no part of the insight that I did not enjoy as everything I learnt and participated in will help me in both my studies and future work.
The insight was very well rounded since it included insight into various different sectors within the firm - it was not just limited to one niche sector. It really highlighted the sense of culture within the firm and how it is all about collaborating to achieve the best standard of work possible.
I enjoyed the scheme very much. It was a great experience to get to know other first years both law and non-law that are interested in pursuing a career in law. It was an excellent way to establish relationships with future colleagues as well as getting to know other people's aspirations in law.
DLA Piper’s First Year Insight Programme was thouroughly enjoyable. It gave a real insight into the day-to-day work that goes on in the various practice departments as well as internationally. The interactive sessions provided a real opportunity to affirm the work and gave us a taster of doing it ourselves which was great. They really got us thinking and working together!
I thoroughly enjoyed the insight. All of the staff were so friendly and extremely helpful, always answered our questions well and gave us so much valuable information. The activities they had organised were so engaging and I never got bored at all, the balance of team work and presentation was perfect!
I really enjoyed the insight scheme because it allowed me, as someone from Leeds, to get a feel for the corporate law firm environment in London. In addition, although it did seem daunting working with strangers, this was pushed by the team in order to create good team atmospheres. We had many talks from partners and other staff and this did allow a good insight into the different sector groups.
I thought it was very interesting and gave me the opportunity to gain some valuable insight into the firm. I was very happy to be fed multiple times a day. The talks were for the most part very enjoyable and interesting, but there were a couple of workshops which were far too long for what they required. Overall however, a very good experience.
I thoroughly enjoyed the First Year Insight Scheme. The entire event was extremely well organised, the presentations and workshops were useful and the networking opportunities were abundant. The only thing that I would have liked was to undergo any type of work shadowing, regardless of department/length/tasks given, as this would give us a better insight as to the actual day-to-day work at DLA Piper. However, given the number of students at the scheme, I understand if this is not possible.
I thoroughly enjoyed the insight scheme at DLA Piper. Throughout my time there I experienced a variety of workshops, talks and presentations. Everyone around me was happy to be there and extremely friendly, and if I was ever unsure with anything, I was not afraid to ask for some assistance.
