Summer work placement scheme

Summer work placement scheme for graduates and undergraduates

Work placements can be the first step into a career within the legal sector.  Furley Page wants to offer both Undergraduates and Graduates a meaningful work placement which provides our applicants with a clear insight into the workings of a large regional firm of solicitors.

We are offering up to 8 applicants the opportunity to undertake a one week summer placement with us. 

Summer Work Experience 2024

The firm has taken the decision to not undertake any trainee solicitor recruitment this year and as a result, we have suspended our 2024 summer work experience programme and will reinstate it next summer.

Please revisit our website early next year for full details of our 2025 summer work experience.

Thank you for your interest in our summer work placement scheme.


This year our one week summer placements will take place during one of the following two weeks:

  • 12 June 2023
  • 19 June 2023

Successful applicants will, over the course of the week, spend one day in each of our participating teams including:

  • Private Client
  • Real Estate
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Personal Injury

Throughout the week you will be partnered with our current Trainees to act as buddies who will assist you with any questions you may have.

Who should apply for the summer work placement scheme?

Client focused and commercially aware Undergraduates who have completed at least year one of their degree; or Graduates who have completed their degrees, regardless of the discipline and are looking for a career within the legal sector.

Graduates must have been awarded a 2:1 as a minimum.
