  • Nobody could be so desperate for a training contract that they would work at Shoosmiths.

  • Agree with the comment above - I would never in a million years consider applying there now. They appear to have no respect for the future employees of the practice.

  • I am considering applying to this firm but unsure after reading about how these trainees have been treated. It looks like this turn around in policy might have been a good thing but wonder how the eight trainees who did not have their contracts moved forward feel??? Did the eight who did not have their contracts move get compensated in the end???

  • We seem to live in an era where we want something for nothing - pray tell, why should those trainees be compensated? a law firm is like any other business which must sometimes make unpopular decisions to remain a viable entity. In this economic climate, Shooosmiths' prudent decision not to pay compensation but to leave moneys in the pot to shore-up their balance sheet means there can be a future for existing employees as well as future employees. I certainly would not want to work for a company that had no regard for the security of their existing staff!

  • You mean to say that letter written by Tom Goff was genuine and not an April Fool's joke? Surely no would-be trainee would ever be so incredulous to genuinely believe the words associated with his name in that letter.

    Even the high-Chief didn't come out and give him the thumbs up.

    One of the comedic highlights of last year....Thank you for that trip down memory lane.
