CW is looking for externs – full time students who can dedicate approximately 10 hours per week to research and general assistance to CW. Externs will generally work from home, with occasional meetings with the CW legal and investigations unit. This work may include legal research and writing, including international and comparative law research; and factual research on specific legal cases.
Externships are designed to give students practical experience of working in litigation, without the time and financial difficulties full-time internships create. Working with CW ’s legal and investigations unit provides students with exposure to litigation at domestic courts as well as to regional and international human rights mechanisms, and will help broaden your understanding of the strategies lawyers involved in such cases adopt. However, our externships require dedication and hard work, and we expect high standards of work from our externs.
All law students who already have an undergraduate degree;
Interest in corruption, political and human rights issues;
Excellent oral and written communication skills in English;
Excellent research skills including online sources;
Well-organised, self-motivated and reliable.
Interested applicants should send a one-page letter of interest, a detailed CV, an unedited writing sample and a two-page answer to the research question to email@example.com, with the subject line “Legal Externship”.
Research question: In your opinion how does corruption impact on human rights and how can the law be used to mitigate and/or combat these impacts?
