Unpaid law student interns for your organization -- placement opportunities -- outside & inside the U.S

Sharing this post from the Global Alliance for Justice Education (GAJE) regarding unpaid law student interns for legal organizations. The program is being organized by Indiana University McKinney School of Law Professor George Edwards, see below for more information and thank you for sharing @gedwards97.

Our Indiana law school is seeking to place some of our law students as unpaid interns for 6 – 12 weeks from May – August 2017. I thought that some GAJE member organizations might be interested in hosting one of our law students. Your organization would benefit from the assistance of our students, and our students would gain valuable experience learning from you and your expertise.

The type of work interns usually do includes legal research and writing, client interviews, working on courtroom litigation or appeals, advocacy before local or international bodies, drafting Know Your Rights Manuals, and other work. They can do work that generally fits under the umbrella of human / civil rights, but that can also include criminal law, refugee law, and other areas.

The organizations that host our student have no financial responsibility. Our unpaid interns receive law school scholarships to pay for air fare, housing, food, and other expenses.

Placements can be in any country, including in the U.S. Since I founded our internship program in 1997, we have had over 200 internship placements in over 65 countries.

Thank you very much.
