I really enjoyed my time at DLA Piper - great quality of work, with a great quality of people. Everybody was friendly, helpful, and keen to share their enthusiasm for the firm.
Associates and trainees often commented how useful my contributions had been. It was a great feeling to be valued.
I was given a lot of scope for independent work and research, but this was by no means a bad thing - someone would always be on hand if I needed assistance.
Very clear schedule, very well thought-through.
Very good atmosphere - friendly bunch of people, felt like I fit in.
Hugely. I was surprised just how much, time, effort, and money went into making this vacation scheme a success.
Very much so. I saw work in progress at all levels of operation, and in two different practice areas.
I felt like everybody at DLA made a big effort to include me as part of the team, and the kind of culture was obvious from the start.
Very much so. I'll be delighted to join DLA Piper as a trainee in 2019.
All reasonable expenses were reimbursed, apart from in the second and third weeks, were I supported myself.
All the time - good social events planned, providing the ideal opportunity to network with a wide variety of people.
I found out about some sports teams, and a weekly office choir.
Absolutely. First class experience of an international business law firm.
