We are offering 6 month Internships across in the Corporate Practice Groups. You will have the opportunity to interact with other DLA Piper offices and experience our “One Team, No Borders” way of working, to improve and test your technical legal skills internationally. We strive to give the opportunity to our interns to feel and understand the Lawyers’ world to be prepared for their professional challenges of tomorrow. This internship role is for a fixed term. It is not a Bar traineeship role.
MAIN DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
We pride ourselves on having a collegiate environment and we are looking for Interns with a strong leadership potential, who are passionate about our culture, values and ethos of the firm. We are keen to hear from Interns with the following experience:
The Department / Practice Group:
Our Interns have the opportunity to support on a variety of tasks within the Corporate Practice Group. The Corporate team offers comprehensive legal services across the full spectrum of cross boarder and national transactions to multinational corporations, investment funds and domestic entrepreneurs. Our involvement in numerous complex transactions has allowed our lawyers to develop extensive experience in all key areas of corporate law.
The successful Intern would be assisting our team of experts on national and cross border corporate transactions, including M&A and PE deals, joint ventures, group reorganisations and general corporate/commercial work.

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
At DLA Piper, diversity and inclusion underpins how we live our values and everything we do. We believe that everyone has a voice, and that everyone’s voice counts. We know that the rich diversity across our firm makes us stronger, more innovative and creative, which helps us to better serve our clients and communities. We are committed to providing an inclusive working environment and culture across our global firm, where everyone can bring their authentic self to work.
Diversity of perspective, thought, background and culture combine to make us the leading global law firm; that’s why we actively seek to build balanced teams. We welcome the unique contribution that you will bring to our firm and actively encourage applications from all talented people – however your talent is packaged, whatever your background or circumstance and regardless of how you identify.
We support anyone with a disability or long term health condition to ensure they have the opportunity to perform at their best. If you have not done so already, please let us know if you require any support so we can make the right adjustments and considerations should they be required.
We know that people have responsibilities and interests outside of their career and that as a business, we all benefit from working flexibly. That’s why we are open to discussing with candidates the different ways in which we are able to support requests for agile working arrangements.
In the event that we make an offer to you, and where local legislation permits, we will conduct pre-engagement screening checks that may include but are not limited to your professional and academic qualifications, your eligibility to work in the relevant jurisdiction, any criminal records, your financial stability and references from previous employers.
