The week was extremely insightful, and the firm put on regular seminars and workshops with senior members of DLA to give a broad overview of the firm. Spent the majority of the week working with a group within our specific office team to prepare a pitch presentation to partners on the final day of the placement.
Teamwork; attention to detail; advocacy skills
Great opportunity to learn more about the business and the role of a trainee at DLA. Lots of varied speakers who could give different insight, from the CEO to current trainees, which all gave a really great impression of the firm.
The people at DLA could not have been nicer or more eager to help. Grad recruitment are amazing at what they do, and organised a fantastic programme which was really engaging, despite having to take place virtually. The culture is really inclusive and the firm has lots of great networks for employees to join, and there is a real sense of teamwork throughout.
I thoroughly enjoyed my vacation programme, and could not recommend DLA more highly.
Reach out to people in the firm, as they are more than happy to speak with you and assist with any questions. I couldn't recommend the firm more highly, and hope that I have the opportunity to work with them again in the future.
