Of course it was not the same as going into the office, but DLA certainly did a fantastic job of replicating that experience considering the circumstances.
Very supportive and down-to-earth. Everyone recognised you for who you were and gave you the opportunity to enjoy it.
There was always someone to turn to for support whether that was graduate recruitment, a buddy, a trainee or the other interns.
The skills (teamwork, time management, network, working under pressure, presenting, etc) I developed will certainly help in the future.
Very well structured. It had a good balance of providing information about the firm, getting to know the people and the culture of DLA and taking part in activities with the other interns.
Very positive. The other interns were very friendly and enthusiastic and graduate recruitment did a great job of keeping is busy with enjoyable activities.
The spent a lot of time give us information and advice. They also put on a range of activities to help us develop organisation, teamwork and presentation skills.
As it was virtual this was naturally limited, however,, we took part in office specific sessions which simulated the kinds of tasks that would be carried out at the firm.
This was something that DLA did very well. We heard from a whole range of people at the firm who really showed off their personalities and were open to questions. This allowed us to properly understand what the people at DLA are like.
Very valuable I really enjoyed the experience and would love to join the firm!
Due to the virtual element this was limited, however, there were several activities where we were able to mix in groups and meet new people.
There was one main social event which was the quiz. It was really fun and a nice way to start off the internship and meet some new people.
Yes, we had several presentations about this and there are lots of opportunities.
Definitely, as a virtual internship it was fantastic.
