Allen & Overy has axed its forthcoming Easter vacation scheme due to “lack of interest” from students.
The magic circle firm claimed that more students have been applying to its summer and winter programmes, making its 10-day Easter scheme redundant.
A spokesman for the firm said: “There has been a general lack of interest from students applying to our easter scheme compared with the others. Therefore the five or so students who met the criteria for our Easter scheme will now be put on to our summer programme.”
A&O currently accepts 60 students on its three-week summer scheme and 20 on to its 10-day winter programme. The firm has not made any decisions about whether its Easter vacation scheme will go ahead in 2010.
