DLA Piper is an equal opportunity employer. All applicants will be treated without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, military or veteran status, gender identity, or any other factor protected by law. Job applicant poster viewing center.

DLA Piper is seeking exceptional law students, from diverse backgrounds and with an entrepreneurial mindset, who are motivated to build their legal skills and gain insight into client needs.  We value innovators and creative thinkers. If you thrive on challenge, value teamwork and want to contribute to building a culture of inclusion, we want to hear from you.

Our Summer Program empowers you to grow as an individual and as a member of a team.  You will gain genuine insight into the law firm experience through hands-on work and real time guidance from our lawyers.  You will experience work life and culture at DLA Piper, contribute to important client work, build meaningful relationships, and access opportunities that will help shape your career.  As part of the summer program, you will enjoy an exclusive experience - a three-day retreat.

We hope you will join us and help build on our efforts to provide better access to justice and support our communities.

Please apply online and include a resume, cover letter, writing sample and law school transcript.  Please indicate your preferred city in your cover letter.  Check with your Career Services Office for requirements related to the timing of law school transcript submissions during the on-campus recruiting season. Our goal is to review submissions in a timely manner; however, we generally do not review online applications until the start of OCI.  Please pardon any delay.

If you have a request for an accommodation during the application process or if you have any questions about the process, please contact Natalie dePasquale at Natalie.dePasquale@us.dlapiper.com.  Because DLA Piper is a federal contractor and must follow certain regulations requiring equal opportunity in employment, please apply directly online rather than sending application materials by email.

No immigration sponsorship is available for this position.
