  1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?
  2. Out of hundreds of applicants from across the United Kingdom, 84 law and non-law students were chosen to join the 2019 DLA Piper UK Insight Programme this year. It was a pleasure to attend this scheme alongside them, and I loved every single moment. This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I am glad I did not miss.


  3. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?
  4. Perhaps this is the most important aspect that influenced my positive view toward the firm. Everyone was very close like family, and that allowed all of the participants to be able to network with each other more comfortably. All of us could clearly see that DLA Piper is definitely a firm that we would like to work for.


  5. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

  6. 10/10

  7. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

  8. 10/10

  9. How well structured was the insight?
  10. I would like to thank the DLA Piper Graduate Recruitment and Development Team for organizing, arranging, and leading the insight programme. I would also like to thank every speaker, panelist, and trainee who took their time to talk to us and answer our questions. I cannot emphasize enough how meaningful the past few days in London was for me.


  11. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?
  12. I believe that DLA Piper has the most favourable working atmosphere that I have seen in any law firm so far. The people of this firm reminded me to stay positive and confident in my life endeavours. DLA Piper seems to encourage the young generation to be kind to oneself, and use that kindness to self-motivate in a positive way. In the words of , ‘Kindness is not softness. Kindness is clarity, and clarity is honesty.’


  13. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  14. We heard from various speakers, and participated in interactive workshops. We also had the opportunity to ask questions to panelists. It was an amazing, spectacular experience.


  15. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?
  16. I look forward to applying for the Fast-Track 2020 Vacation Scheme.

  23. 10/10

  24. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?
  25. I was able to make many connections via the networking sessions, and asked quite a few questions to the trainees as well. I absolutely appreciate all the valuable advice I received throughout the programme.


  26. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

  27. 10/10

  28. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

  29. 10/10

  30. In addition to these questions, is there any extra information you would like to leave about your experiences on your work placement that other students may be interested in?
