Allen & Overy 2022/23 Summer Clerkship

What we can offer you

During your ten week placement at Allen & Overy, you will participate in real transactions and disputes from beginning to end as well as specifically designed exercises that provide a valuable insight into the role of an Allen & Overy lawyer. You will attend sessions and presentations aimed at broadening your understanding of our business and helping you to develop the skills you need to be a successful commercial lawyer. As your career progresses with Allen & Overy, you will be given a range of choices to develop your experiences, such as taking up the opportunity to spend time working in another office, whether that’s a rotation as a junior lawyer, a longer term secondment or a permanent transfer.

What are we looking for?

There is no typical Allen & Overy lawyer. We realise each person has their unique skills and qualities. In addition to excellent academic results, we seek students who are team players, show resilience, are good communicators, have strength in planning and organisation, are adept at problem solving and general commercial awareness with an overall ambition to build a career at Allen & Overy.

Our shared culture and the values inspire the way we work and behave: instinctively thoughtful, collectively ambitious, insightfully inventive and refreshingly open.
