Spending a Summer In-House and Outside
Rees Morrison makes note of an interesting summer associate program offered by DLA Piper and corporate client Accenture. The program is intended to give students a taste of life as an associate at a large firm, as well as in-house at a corporation. Morrison says he's not clear whether Accenture will actually pay for the summer associates who work for it or whether it is leveraging off its existing relationship with DLA Piper. But even if DLA Piper is spending more to subsidize the summers' salaries, it comes out as a winner in the end,by solidifying its relationship with a corporate client, which could lead to more work. If that's the case, we'll likely see more of these programs in the future.
