When I agreed to blog about my experiences at DLA Piper this summer, I knew it would be fitting to discuss the event that likely will be a memorable highlight for all of us: our summer retreat. The event was great from the start. As an icebreaker, we all gathered at The Experience Music Project Museum (“EMP”), which is one of the coolest museums I have ever seen (and I’ve been to London and Paris)! We had delicious food and drinks and proceeded to learn about Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, got to see a collection of amazing guitars, and even played our own instruments. My boyfriend, a musician, was surely squirming with jealousy. It was great to hear about the other summer associates’ varying experiences, from those offices with only one summer associate to those with 10 or more. By 11 PM, I had met some great people and the jetlag hit me, so I had to go to bed.
