Start your journey to an amazing career. Please note you can only apply to one opportunity each year.

We are aware of the existence of a number of websites purporting to provide sample Allen & Overy application forms and actual interview and assessment questions, including our situational Judgement Test (SJT). Some of these websites offer to provide these for a fee.

Allen & Overy takes cases of plagiarism and copyright extremely seriously, and will investigate them thoroughly. We would therefore strongly caution potential applicants against using, or paying for, unofficial sources claiming to provide information on the Allen & Overy application process. Our scenario-based assessment approach is designed to help candidates demonstrate their true potential and we would therefore encourage every potential candidate to review our website for details of our application process and a sample SJT.  

If you have any further questions on the Allen & Overy application process, or if you wish to discuss or report such a website, please contact us at graduate.recruitment@allenovery.com
