"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 attend Law careers fairs in Winter, and deliver employer presentations in your University, College or School throughout the year.

Take a look below to see if we are at an event near you this year, and if so, drop by and say hi. If there is not an event near you, don't worry, we are adding new dates all the time. If you would like us to attend an employer presentation or skills event at your University, College or School, please email

We also 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. If you would like to attend an insight evening the application will open on our website during Autumn 2016. 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.
