The insight programme has given me a great insight into the life of a lawyer working in a large commercial law firm. In comparison to other firms I have had work experience with prior to DLA, I feel like at DLA, each day I have went home equipped with new knowledge, and a feeling that I have actually learnt something that will help me with my future career. Whether that is in relation to a specific area of law or in relation to the practicality of working at a firm. DLA clearly put a lot of effort into making this insight day fun, enjoyable, engaging, but also very educational.
Yes it was a very enjoyable experience and everyone was extremely friendly. The whole event was very well organised and I would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of doing it. Thank you very much to everyone involved in organising the 3 days first year insight programme - it was amazing
I enjoyed the First Year Insight Programme very much indeed. The three-day programme was packed with informative yet fun talks, workshops, presentations and networking events. I gained valuable insight into the firm's culture, office environment, as well as the general work of an international commercial lawyer working at DLA Piper.
I enjoyed the first year insight programme provided by DLA Pieper very much. Despite the fact that this is the first programme of this type that they made, it was the best I have attended. It has been really focused, highly organised and the catering and accommodation facilities they have put in place for us have been outstanding.
It was very enjoyable. We did a number of different activities, all geared around a day in the life of a DLA Piper Solicitor. I particularly enjoyed just how friendly all the staff were, ranging from the Partners to the kitchen staff. I must also say the food was very nice aswell!
I really enjoyed the insight programme and definitely found it to be beneficial. All the staff and previous vacation scheme students provided a lot of insight into the journey and transition from university to working in the firm. Through the insight programme, I have found new sectors of law that interest me.
The First Year Insight Programme was extremely enjoyable. As this is the first year that they are holding this programme, I was very impressed by the amount of effort that has gone into the planning and organisation, particularly in terms of the workshops and materials provided during them. Everyone at the firm was also extremely welcoming.
Very much enjoyed the programme. It was my first time on any structured programme such as this and I thought that it had been very well planned. They had included workshops, talks and activities on each area of law that would be relevant to an undergraduate who's aim is to come into law, whether it be with a law degree or not.
I really enjoyed this insight programme. It gave a good overview as to the experience of a trainee lawyer, coupled with talks from partners from the firm. There were a number of workshops for commercial awareness and employability. By the end of the programme we were sad it was over.
The insight programme was a great opportunity to acclimatise to the culture of the firm and gain a broader knowledge of the wide range of opportunities available to students considering a career in law. There were plenty of talks from various partners on a variety of topics, which were engaging and often entertaining too!
I had an extremely informative and pleasant time during the Insight Programme at DLA Piper. I found the sessions very interesting, and the firm culture absolutely inspiring. The Team that took care of us were so helpful and accommodating. I had a fantastic 3-day experience at DLA Piper, only leaving me more interested to further apply to their future schemes.
I really enjoyed the 3 days at the insight scheme. We gained lots of information about the firm through partners but also had the opportunity to get involved in group tasks. I haven't done anything like this before and would get involved with something similar after this experience.
It was very interactive and interesting. I particularly enjoyed learning about the extent of the firm's Pro Bono involvement. The partners that spoke to us were interesting and engaging. The group activities were also particularly fun and the socials were good too.
