Training Contract

Upon joining the firm all trainees in the UK attend a residential induction course, which gives them the opportunity to network with colleagues and speak to senior people within the firm to learn more about our visions and values, before joining their respective offices. 

Trainees then go on to complete four six-month seats and are given an opportunity to express what areas of law they would like to experience during their training contracts. They also have the opportunity to do a seat abroad, or a client secondment. Current international secondments include Bangkok, Dubai, Hong Kong, Madrid, Moscow and Sydney. 

Our refreshing approach to learning and development where people are encouraged to take on early responsibility, combined with an open door policy, provides our trainees with an excellent foundation on which to build their careers. 

After qualification our award winning training programme ensures that all employees are developed throughout their time at DLA Piper, as we believe in investing in the careers and reputation of our people.
