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. If you and your friends like the sound of having a go, read on…
What is Think! ?
Think! is Allen & Overy’s business challenge which will be takes place on campus during Autumn. 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 October 2015 to email@example.com: your chosen team name, all members’ names and your university. We will let you know when and where we will be on campus running the game.
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.
We are currently closed for team entries at this time. More information will be provided in Autumn 2016.
