Our summer clerkship is designed to give you insight into what DLA Piper is really like.

Our programme starts with an induction. This induction provides an advanced introduction to the legal sector and the firms practice groups. It also builds your professional skills and workplace capability. Throughout the induction there will be opportunities to hear from and network with senior members of the firm.

Once you are inducted you'll have the opportunity to complete work placements in our different practice groups. You'll be given real responsibilities. Whether you're attending a court hearing, contributing to a client meeting or assisting a large corporate transaction, you'll have plenty of opportunities to reach your potential.

At the end of the clerkship, participants are assessed for a graduate position.

Given the broad sectors and services covered by the firm there really isn’t any specific template or conventional background for a “DLA Piper Lawyer”. DLA Piper recognises the value of harnessing varying perspectives and as such places a huge emphasis on diversity and inclusion.
