(1) DLA Piper Interview Experience Anonymous 1 - This is from a future trainee at a different firm, but she interviewed at DLA Piper for a vacation scheme. Group Exercise The usual tips would come in handy like checking the time and prompting the others how long is left, referring to everyone by their names and sustaining open body language. Specific to DLA Piper's group exercise, there's a lot to digest so I started from the back and worked my way to the front in the event the others didn't have time to get to the end. I was marked up on using real life examples (e.g. any bad/good press a company has had for something). I'd also advise not being afraid to stick to your guns.
