Training Contract 2021
Posted on Dec 11, 2018 by Shoosmiths
In addition to these we have many other practice areas which may offer seats on a slightly less regular basis and may include intellectual property, EU & competition, pensions, insurance, regulatory & compliance, planning and construction & engineering.
We don't have any compulsory seats, but you must sit within three distinct areas of law consisting of at least one non-contentious, and one contentious area in line with the SRA (Solicitors Regulation Authority) requirements.
We allocate no more than one trainee to each team, which means you will enjoy high levels of involvement with your team, and are given good quality work and contact with clients.
In our opinion the best way to learn is in practice, that's why you'll be given responsibility and your own case files to manage at an early stage.
Over two years you will complete four six-month seats, one of which could be a secondment to a client's in-house legal team. A client secondment aims to give you experience of being on a client site as well as providing a challenging and exciting variety of legal work.
The tasks that you will undertake are engaging, interesting and often with familiar topics, brands and products with which you can easily identify.
The Professional Skills Course is the final training course on your journey to become a solicitor. We have a dedicated PSC provider and courses are arranged in-house throughout your first year as a trainee. These are also a great opportunity for the entire trainee year to meet up on a residential for a social and good food.
