"Meet us in person, it's the best way to learn about your Training Contract"

Samantha Hope

Graduate Recruitment Manager

We think the best way for you to find out about training at Shoosmiths is to meet us face to face.

We will be attending various Law careers fairs in Winter 2018 so keep an eye out for updates of where we will be exhibiting. We also deliver employer presentations in educational establishments so if you would like us to attend an employer presentation or skills event at your University, College or School, please email

We hold a number of insight evenings so that you can gain an insight into working as a solicitor at Shoosmiths. This opportunity is open to candidates who are either currently at university or have graduated, in any degree discipline. The online application form for insight evenings has now closed; however you can apply for our 2019 insight evenings from December 2018. The dates of our insight evenings will be advertised on our website, Facebook page and Twitter.

You can see the photos from our previous events on twitter and facebook using #InsightEvening.

Keep an eye on our list below for updates on events near you.
