Frequently asked questions

How do I apply for an internship?

Applications for our Internships can be made through our website.

Can I apply for an internship in multiple offices?

No, you can only apply to one position in one office.

There are mitigating circumstances which impacted my academic results. Can I still apply?

Yes. Please note your mitigating circumstances on your application and these will be taken into consideration (you may be asked to produce documentary evidence).

I did not study in Ireland. How do I provide my grades on the application form?

Please complete the 'Other Education' section on the application form for all examinations completed outside of Ireland. There is no need to attempt to convert your grades into the Irish equivalent.

Will I need to show you my exam certificates?

You will need to provide evidence of your academic achievements (e.g. exam certificates/transcripts) if you are offered a position at DLA Piper.

Can I practice before sitting the online test?

Yes, you can. Our testing partner has a practice website where you can complete questions similar to what you'll see in the real test. We recommend that you practice before taking the real test. That way, you'll know what to expect and nothing about the format or process will come as a surprise. The practice test site is here.

Can I apply for the internship if I have completed my degree?

Yes, we accept applications from those who have already completed their degree.
