During your ten-week placement at Allen & Overy, you will participate in real transactions from beginning to end as well as specifically designed exercises that provide a valuable insight into the role of an Allen & Overy lawyer. Bespoke training is provided by some of our leading lawyers in Australia including access to international training sessions too. As your career progresses with Allen & Overy, you will be given a range of choices to develop your experiences, such as taking up the opportunity to spend time working in another office, whether that’s a rotation as a junior lawyer, a longer term secondment or a permanent transfer.
There is no typical Allen & Overy lawyer. We realise each person has their unique skills and qualities. In addition to excellent academic results, we seek students who are team players, show resilience, are good communicators, have strength in planning and organisation, are adept at problem-solving and general commercial awareness with an overall ambition to build a career at Allen & Overy.
Our shared culture and the values inspire the way we work and behave: instinctively thoughtful, collectively ambitious, insightfully inventive and refreshingly open.
Join an elite group of Summer Clerks at Allen & Overy in 2020/21. Applications for the Sydney program open on Tuesday 9 June 2020 and close on Sunday 12 July 2020.
We accept applications from overseas students, however applicants must demonstrate a commitment to starting their legal career in Australia and have the right to live and work in Australia.
We invest in hand-selecting our Summer Clerks each year and we're pleased to offer graduate positions to all our Sydney Summer Clerks from our initial program in 2010/11 to our 2019/20 intake.
