Summer Vacation Scheme
It can be difficult trying to differentiate one firm from another. That’s why our Vacation Schemes are a great way to experience our cutting-edge work and collaborative culture.
As part of the scheme, you’ll gain real and valuable experience from day one, working alongside our lawyers on live deals and cases. There are a plethora of events and presentations to attend where you’ll learn about key elements of our practice while developing the skills you need to be a successful international commercial lawyer.
But it’s not all work and no play. There’s plenty of time to socialise with our graduate recruitment team, lawyers and partners as well as the other students on your scheme - broadening your knowledge of the firm and building your network.
Operating in over thirty countries – and at the forefront of our industry – Allen & Overy is one of the world’s leading law firms. The work we do makes headlines, breaks new ground and sets precedents. Ambitious, creative and inclusive, we embrace new ways of thinking. That’s why we’ve been named the Most Innovative Law Firm in Europe by the Financial Times six times. By combining our strengths and investing in our team, we’ll provide you with the support required to unleash your potential.
Here, we’ll equip you with the skills to think differently and embrace an exciting future: one that’s filled with unique challenges, international projects and a broad range of opportunities. As a firm, we support an agile and flexible culture that is tailor made to help build rewarding careers. Bring exciting ideas to the table and we’ll help you make your voice heard. Demonstrate tenacity and we’ll show you a brave new world. If you want to make an impact and influence the future of law: It’s Time.
Our two week Summer Vacation Scheme is for penultimate year students, finalists and graduates from any degree discipline. Please note that you may only apply for one of our two vacation schemes in any twelve month period.
The Scheme will take place from 22nd June to the 3 July 2020, so please ensure you are available to participate, should you be successful in securing a place on the scheme.
