An insight evening is an opportunity for you to get to know Shoosmiths and decide whether we are the right fit for your future.
Attending an event 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 in-person 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, and you’ll hear from our partners who will share their journey from trainee to lawyer. We know you will have lots of questions, so there will be an opportunity for you to speak to people during the networking session.
Why should I attend an insight evening?
You will have the opportunity to hear first-hand what current trainees and lawyers think about the firm. It's a fantastic opportunity to network, get to know our people, and ask our trainees about their training contract and their advice on how to apply. Most importantly, you will be able to introduce yourself to us and make a great first impression before you submit your application!
Our graduate recruitment team will host the event, and will be on hand throughout to answer any questions you have about the application form or the recruitment process.
What else do I need to know?
Our events will run between 5:45pm – 8:30pm. We host these in the evening, so you can fit them in around other commitments such as work or study. We have released the dates of the events so that you can add them to your diary.
Whilst you’ll want to make a good impression, you won’t be assessed at the event. It’s simply a great chance for you to find out more about us and develop your networking skills.
If you can’t make it to an insight evening, in-person, we will also be hosting a virtual event on 7 March 2023, so you can apply to that or have a look at our meet us page to see other events which you can attend.
