Hear from recent summer associates
Past summer associates found a welcoming and supportive environment fortified by a drive for success and growth. Hear why they chose DLA Piper and what they had to say about our corporate culture.
It begins here
Be part of the team
From day one you are part of a team doing meaningful work for our clients. You will be integrated into one of our core practice groups and supported by lawyers who are invested in your growth and development. Through fun social and community activities, you will also have plenty of opportunities to get to know the summer associates and lawyers in your local office.
Training and development
When you join DLA Piper you will have the opportunity to give back. This may include taking part in one of the clinical offerings centered around immigration, or preparing restraining orders for victims domestic violence. You may join colleagues as you volunteer preparing food for families or sorting donations at a food bank. You can make an impact.
Through the Krantz Fellowship, we annually select two new associates to spend their first year at the firm working exclusively on pro bono matters. We created the fellowship in honor of Sheldon Krantz, a former partner and founding director of New Perimeter.
Diversity and inclusion
We value our people and provide a welcoming, inclusive environment where everyone can succeed.
