ITLL accepts interns and volunteers on a rolling basis, subject to availability of spots. We have a particular interest in interns/volunteers with legal and/or communications expertise, although other areas of skill are also welcome.
Applications can be submitted at any time.
ITLL offers students and interns a very rich and varied experience, and the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects. At ITLL, the vast majority of the work done by students and interns is substantive in nature, focusing on research and analysis of legislation, and sometimes on consultancy. Students and interns may also be asked to assist with minor administrative tasks, such as uploading press releases to ITLL’s website, researching funding opportunities, organising events and conferences, etc.
The types of work students and interns are most commonly assigned are as follows:
• Background research: Students and interns are often asked to conduct background research into thematic issues which will then feed into ITLL’s activities. The latter may be publications, legal analyses or law reform work.
• Legal analyses: An important part of ITLL’s work involves writing papers and providing detailed analysis of legislation, either in draft form or which has been targeted for reform by our partners. Students and interns are often asked to assist with this in different ways, including by preparing initial drafts or by conduction comparative legal surveys to assess how other countries deal with the issue in question.
• Other forms of drafting: Students and interns may be asked to assist with other forms of drafting, depending on the work ITLL currently has on its agenda, such as assisting in drafting documents for our Magazine, press releases to comment on global developments, internal policy papers, etc.
