Starting a Training Contract with Allen & Overy is just the beginning of what will be a stimulating and rewarding legal career. Throughout the two years of your Training Contract, we will work closely with you to ensure you have the right support to develop into a successful commercial solicitor.

You do not need to complete a vacation scheme with us in order to secure a Training Contract, in fact around half of A&O’s trainees did not undertake work experience with us before applying for a Training Contract.

The partners and associates you work with will make sure you are given variety and responsibility in your work. You will be expected to use your initiative, safe in the knowledge that you have a strong network of resources and support behind you.

The opportunities to apply for international and client secondments during the second year of training will allow you to experience the breadth of our work whilst ensuring you gain the depth of knowledge to help you make informed qualification choices.

We will help you become the most skilled, accomplished, business-focused lawyer you can be. Where your career takes you is then up to you.
