Training Contract

Allen & Overy is a pioneering legal practice operating around the world at the frontline of developing business. By helping companies, institutions and governments tackle ever-more complex issues and transactions on a global stage, it is leading the way and extending what is possible in law.

With 44 offices in 31 countries, plus a network of relationship firms in other locations, we are one of the few legal practices that can genuinely claim to be global, covering 99% of the world’s economy.

Starting a Training Contract with Allen & Overy is just the beginning of what will be a stimulating and rewarding legal career. Throughout the two years of your Training Contract, we will work closely with you to ensure you have the right support to develop into a successful commercial solicitor.

You do not need to complete a Vacation Scheme in order to secure an A&O Training Contract; in fact around half of A&O’s trainees did not undertake work experience with us before applying.

The partners and associates you work with will make sure you are given variety and responsibility in your work. You will be expected to use your initiative, safe in the knowledge that you have a strong network of resources and support behind you.

The opportunities to apply for international and client secondments during the second year of training will allow you to experience the breadth of our work whilst ensuring you gain the depth of knowledge to help you make informed qualification choices.

We are open for Training Contract applications between 1 October and 31 December 2016 for students currently in penultimate or final year of study, as well as graduates across all degree disciplines (completing studies before July 2018). Please remember you can only apply once in any 12-month period for an A&O Training Contract or a Vacation Scheme.
