A&O First is for first-year undergraduate students, as well as those in their second-year of a four-year course, and is open to all degree disciplines. The application window opens 13 January 2020 and will close on 13 February 2020.
We’ll be looking for evidence of your commercial awareness, commitment to extra-curricular activities and interest in finding out more about law and, in particular, Allen & Overy.
The online application form is your first opportunity to stand out, so make the most of it with thorough preparation. Make sure you use your strongest examples that demonstrate the skills we are looking for and, above all, good attention to detail.
Once you submit the application, you’ll be prompted to complete an immersive video based Situational Judgement Test (SJT), which should take around 20 minutes to complete. The SJT is designed to provide a realistic preview of what you may experience as a trainee at A&O.
