Allen & Overy is a leading global law firm operating in over 30 countries. We cover 99% of the world’s economy, working with companies, organisations and governments on issues of incredible scope and complexity. We’re a future forward business and the only one to have topped the Financial Times Innovative Law Firm ranking four times.

The world is changing, and we need to change with it. At A&O, our trainees can combine new ways of thinking with their knowledge of the evolving world to become lawyers of the future. Trainees who know they’re made for more can expect a rewarding experience that will help them cultivate a career that counts. 

In each of their seats they’ll support associates and partners, with exposure to work that crosses departments and borders – in fact, 73% of the firm’s work involves two or more jurisdictions. Around 80% of trainees have the chance to spend six months in one of our 44 overseas offices, or on secondment to one of our various clientele – who include 87% of Forbes’ top 100 public companies. 

We’re dedicated to challenging the status quo and leading the way in commercial law. We’re working to equip our people with the skills and knowledge they will need to operate and thrive in the legal landscape of the future. For trainees, this means an in-house training programme with flexibility and opportunity – like the chance to take a litigation course alongside their rotations. 

Our people are talented and motivated and enjoy a supportive and collaborative environment. Around half of our trainees have a degree in a subject other than law – so whatever your academic background, we will help you develop into an exceptional lawyer of the highest possible standard.
