Please see our most frequently asked questions below.
1. I’m a second-year law student. How do I apply for a summer position? What if DLA Piper isn't visiting my campus?
If you're at a law school where we generally conduct on-campus interviews, you may apply through your school's career placement office. If we aren’t currently scheduled to visit your campus, please apply directly by submitting an online application.
We may have a limited number of positions for first year law students. To be considered, please apply online after December 1st.
Callback interviews are very thorough, generally lasting from two to four hours. You will meet with four to six partners and associates. If at your particular office they ask you to lunch as part of your interview, we encourage you to go. It’s a great chance to meet DLA Piper lawyers in a less formal setting. Also, if you’d like to learn more about a specific practice group or the experiences of a specific lawyer with a diverse background, please ask your recruiter. The recruiting staff would be happy to provide you with information on our travel reimbursement policies, if they apply.
Your recruiter or Hiring Partner will let you know when you should expect to hear from us following your interview.
Absolutely. We would enjoy having you back for a follow-up visit! Please contact your recruiter to schedule a mutually convenient time. Be sure to let us know if you’d like to meet with lawyers at a specific level (junior/senior associate or partner), in a specific practice group or from a specific diverse background.
