  • God this looks really really bad for anyone even hoping for a TC! Thanks god I got mine when I did! I just don't want to think about what long-term damage this recession is going to do to our profession........

  • Every one of these news stories includes a line slating Shoosmiths. Further destroying their reputation in graduate recruitment.
    No doubt theyll still have no problem filling their TC vacancies in future as places are so limited, but the best just wont apply. You only have time to fill in a certain number of applications, and I cant see any of the best graduates willing to pick this firm.

  • They should be offering the deferral fee in addition to the paralegal work, hardly an unreasonable request.
