Reed Smith Rise

This year we are introducing our brand new scheme for first year university students. This is a three-day programme of workshops, shadowing and networking at our offices in London. Following this, we will pair you with a mentor at the firm who will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about life at Reed Smith. Graduate Recruitment will also be staying in touch to let you know about applications for upcoming schemes.

Applications will open in December 2022 – further details on how to apply will follow.

Open Days

We will be running a number of open days throughout 2022, these are a great opportunity to get to know us and find out if you are a good fit for the firm. This year we will be hosting an in-person open day as well as a virtual open day so we can reach as many of you as possible.

Campus Ambassadors

We have the opportunity for students to represent Reed Smith on campus. You will be working within a cohort of campus ambassadors from universities across the country and be a point of call for all things Reed Smith at your university! You will be paid for your work in advertising the firm, as well as have the exclusive opportunity to visit our London office.


Each year we attend a number of events at Universities as well as through partners including Legal Cheek, All About Law, Bright Network, and Aspiring Solicitors. Further details on where to meet us will be added here.
