    Pros

    Very friendly atmosphere, great team, demanding and challenging. One of the best law firms around especially for those interested in commercial law.

    Cons

    No actual cons, great environment to work in. Lots of benefits and counseling from senior lawyers. Best path for someone fresh off the boat. Stimulating.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Allen & Overy.

    Interview

    A lot of scenario-based questions and the interview is awfully long. For example, tell me about a time when you hold a minority viewpoint in a group. A very thorough interview. The case study was relatively easier for me. The interviewer was very personable and guided through the case. Learned a lot from the case interview.
