We heard from different lawyers at different levels of their career; ranging from partner level to trainees. We had the opportunity to ask any questions we may have had.
I have developed my understanding of what a career in commercial law entails and how I can better succeed when it comes to making applications for vacation schemes and training contracts.
We had a specific session dedicated to "demystifying law" which helped clarify a lot of difficult elusive concepts involved in commercial law.
Everyone was incredibly warm and kind! I could tell even through the virtual environment that DLA Piper's culture is a welcoming and friendly one.
I had a lot of fun, I just wish the insight scheme was longer!
Make sure your CV is well structured. Also do your research before completing the application question.
