What we look for

We offer places for high-caliber students from leading U.S. law schools in our summer program.

Our summer associates can expect a stimulating and rewarding experience working with one of the world’s leading legal practices. Summer associates are treated as full-time associates, and we make a point of offering considerable responsibility, working on top-quality transactions in pioneering areas.

We are open to creative minds, and our environment is the ideal one in which creativity can find full expression. We place great value on feedback, and go to great lengths to match individual preferences and interests with the work we assign.

Allen & Overy has a long-established tradition of making time to share expertise and experience with colleagues, no matter how pressured the situation. Summer associates are no different than anyone else at Allen & Overy, and they can expect to receive ample partner attention and to gain invaluable experience working alongside associates and partners.
