This is Jimmy Smith checking in –a second year student at Georgetown Law and a summer associate in our Washington, D.C. office. I’m a part-time surfer, an amateur chef, and a vintage drink enthusiast. Follow me over the coming weeks as I report on life as a “summer” at one of the world’s largest law firms.
First things first: You’re probably curious why I chose DLA Piper over other law firms at which I interviewed last fall. The answer is simple: because of its renowned summer program. Needless to say, I have not been disappointed. DLA Piper’s summer program has influenced my intellectual evolution in a way that I could never have imagined.
