We offer insight evenings to students in any year of study at university, in any discipline. We also welcome applications from graduates and postgraduates.
Attending an insight evening will give you an insight into our practice areas and clients, our training contract, and the skills you need to develop and become a successful solicitor. The event will be packed with opportunities for you to meet our people, build relationships, and include valuable advice for your training contract application.
You will hear from our current trainees who will explain what attracted them to Shoosmiths. You will also meet solicitors and partners and hear their journey from trainee to solicitor and why they chose to qualify into a certain area of law.
Our graduate recruitment team will be on hand to answer any questions you have about the application form or the recruitment process.
Shoosmiths is a leading national law firm with a network of 13 locations working together as one national team, including Southampton, Belfast, Reading, London, Northampton, Milton Keynes, Birmingham, Manchester, Nottingham, Leeds, Sheffield, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Our client list speaks volumes for the quality of our lawyers and the experience they provide. We work with a growing number of the FTSE 250 and some of the world's most exciting and ambitious growth businesses.
Our values and culture underpin everything that we do. We believe that our friendly, supportive and dynamic working environment is fundamental to our success and we value highly the role that each individual plays in contributing to this.
We are committed to giving our people the responsibility, confidence, recognition and support that they need to develop and succeed in their careers. This was recognised when we were awarded the best recruiter for a National/Large Regional Firm at the LawCareers.Net Training and Recruitment Awards 2019, and The Law Society confirmed our ‘gold’ status in the Diversity and Inclusion Charter for another year.
Being awarded ‘Best Social Media’ at the All About Law awards 2018 demonstrates that we are an innovative, ambitious firm with a lack of hierarchy and zero tolerance for arrogance and believe that this makes Shoosmiths a fantastic place to work.
