Training Contract applications can be made between 1 October and 31 December 2017.
You can choose to either apply for a Vacation Scheme with us (during which you will be assessed for a Training Contract) or apply directly for a Training Contract. Please note that you can only apply once for a Vacation Scheme or a Training Contract every twelve months. Those on a Vacation Scheme will automatically be considered for a Training Contract.
When applying, you will be asked to state which year you will be available to start at Allen & Overy (in either March or September).
Please note that if you are studying or have studied a qualifying law degree in England and Wales, you will need to complete the Allen & Overy MA Legal Practice Course (LPC) with Business after graduation.
This course lasts for seven months and starts in either July or January, enabling you to commence employment at A&O in March or September, respectively. If you are unsure whether your degree falls into this category, please contact the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) http://www.sra.org.uk/students/courses/qualifying-law-degree-providers.page for clarification.
If you have not studied a qualifying law degree, then you will need to complete the Graduate Diploma in Law (12 months long) before taking the Allen & Overy MA Legal Practice Course (LPC) with Business described above.
