Are you in Law School? Do you enjoy International Law? A38 is now accepting applications for virtual/web-based internships from all over the world. Spread over three months, these internships can have you work closely with literature on international law, research and articulation through the written word.
We’re looking for smart, interesting, quick-thinking and versatile interns with a penchant for articulation. Interning with A38 will be a valuable addition to any Curriculum Vitae, especially if you are looking at an academic career, or a career in international law. The training ground for analytical writing and studying International Law that A38 is, will offer you international exposure as a savvy professional. Lawyers aren’t keeping their knowledge to themselves, anymore, so join the bandwagon where Knowledge is the Common Heritage of Mankind!
Deadline: 20 October 2012
Blogging Intern: A38 maintains a blog to ensure a steady flow of information, articles and scholarly debate. We are looking for four interns to man the blog for twelve weeks, with contributions in the form of one article a week. These articles are expected to be previously unpublished, in pertinence to the generic field of international law, draw upon current affairs and project room for debate, discussion and knowledge dissemination.
