Summer Placements 2017
Shoosmiths is a leading national law firm with 1460 staff over 11 locations across the UK.
The top quality of client service that we provide is recognised by the national awards that we have won. These include ‘UK Law Firm of the Year 2015’ in the British Legal Awards and being the first top 100 law firm to be accredited with ‘Investors in People Gold Standard’.
To find out whether a career in law is for you, apply for a one-week paid placement where you’ll experience a real week in the life of a trainee solicitor, sitting with your whole team in an open plan office.
We offer around 40-50 paid placements each June. On your placement you will be ‘buddied up’ with a trainee who will be able to answer any questions that you may have.
You will be given real responsibility and real case files. You will also be set a mini project to complete which will help you to get to know people in your office and across the firm.
Placements provide invaluable experience, allowing you to choose the right firm for you, and can even fast track you to a place on the assessment centre for a training contract.
Applications for our 2017 summer placements will open on our website in December 2016. Law students are eligible to apply from their penultimate year of University. Non-law students are eligible to apply from their final year of University. We also welcome applications from graduates and postgraduates.
