The A&O business challenge
Have you ever wondered what lawyers actually do? For a chance to find out, and to compete for some top prizes, sign up to the Allen & Overy Think! Business Challenge. The 2011 winners came from Exeter University and their main prize was the opportunity to spend a day at the Bishops Square office work shadowing lawyers in their department of choice. If you and your friends like the sound of this, read on…
What is Think! ?
Think! is Allen & Overy's business challenge which will be taking place on campus throughout October and November 2013. The challenge puts you in the shoes of a commercial lawyer, representing your client. Think! is aimed at undergraduates only - any year group, any degree discipline - and will help you to develop key skills including commercial awareness, team working, problem solving and communication, all of which are essential if you are going to be successful in the legal world.
How do I get involved?
Ideally you will need to form a team (4 - 6 people only please) and submit the following information after 1 September 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org: your chosen team name, all members names and university. You won't need to do any preparation for Think! - just turn up at the venue, on time, and find out what's in store. Places for Think! will be allocated on a first come, first served basis only, so you will need to be quick as we can only run the game for approximately 40 people. If you are keen to take part in the game, but do not yet have a team in place, please feel free to sign up to Think! and we'll do our best to help you to form a team with others. The challenge will last for 90 minutes.
