DLA Piper and Accenture have joined to create the program "Enhancing the DLA Piper Summer Experience: A Collaboration between DLA Piper and Accenture" through which you may experience working in-house at Accenture. The program is offered in our Chicago and Washington, DC offices. If selected, you would shadow lawyers, join in conference calls and meetings, review contracts and documents and attend business and social events. Participants from previous years have unanimously applauded the experience and enjoyed the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with and gain an understanding of a firm client.
Each year, two entry-level associates are selected to dedicate their first year of work at the firm to pro bono matters. Associates selected will be paid the same salary as all first-year associates, but will be assigned full-time to work with the firm’s pro bono department during their first year. Fellows will work on New Perimeter projects underway throughout the world and our signature pro bono projects in the US. In doing so, they will play a key role in growing our pro bono program while gaining opportunities to develop management and leadership skills.
