A clerkship is a great way to gain insight into our firm, and is your path to a graduate position with DLA Piper.
As a Clerk, you can expect a varied experience both in and outside the office. You will work in a creative, dynamic environment with some of the best legal professionals in the world, gaining first-hand experience doing real legal work.
We begin with a comprehensive induction program, after which you are placed in one of the firm's practice areas to work closely with our talented and very approachable partners and senior lawyers.
You'll have a buddy (usually a current graduate) and a supervisor (partner or senior lawyer) who will support and guide you through your clerkship.
We also ensure you have regular contact with other clerks throughout the program via briefings, networking lunches and fun social activities.
Clerkships are offered in all our offices. While your clerkship experience will be similar between offices, our program duration and intake size does vary.
We accept online applications via our job board. Visit our website for more information on recruitment dates and our selection process.
