Journey through a contract — with Shoosmiths

Tuesday 1 November, 4pm to 6pm, taking place virtually

Join us on the afternoon of Tuesday 1 November for a virtual commercial awareness masterclass with Shoosmiths.

Shoosmiths offers 36 training contracts each year and has a newly qualified salary of £87,000 (and up to £58,000 outside London).

Lawyers from the full-service firm will give students an unmissable insight into the reality of contracts, the bedrock of corporate law.

Date: Tuesday 1 November 2022
Time: 4pm to 6pm
Location: Virtual event
Level: Students, Graduates

How do contracts in the real world differ from what is taught at law school? What is the process of putting them together? And how should students be thinking about contracts as they build their commercial awareness?

The speakers will answer these questions and many more during a presentation, followed by a Q&A chaired by a Legal Cheek journalist. They will also reflect on their career journeys and give advice to students hoping to follow a similar path.

The speakers

Priti Bansel-Branch, assistant general counsel in the technology, media and commercial team
• Michelle Craven-Faulkner, partner in the commercial team
Khillan Gohil, associate

After the talks there will be virtual networking with the speakers, Shoosmiths’ trainees and members of the firm’s graduate recruitment team.

Apply to attend. You’ll be asked to submit two questions for the speakers.
