It is the UK section of the International Commission of Jurists. JUSTICE is a registered charity that relies on the generosity of members and supporters for the funds to carry out its work.
JUSTICE is now inviting applications for its Winter Internship Programme 2014.
The internship programmeThis year the winter internships will focus on human rights legal research. For this reason JUSTICE is now seeking applications from law graduates only. This includes people who expect to have completed a law degree or GDL by the time they start their internship. Successful applicants should be able to demonstrate familiarity with relevant UK law and institutions. In exceptional cases, applications will be considered from non-law graduates who can demonstrate in their application that they have relevant knowledge and experience equivalent to a law degree.
JUSTICE interns gain the opportunity to develop skills and experience of working on important areas of legal policy at a national level as well as the chance to be part of a small, friendly and committed staff.
The winter internship programme will take place during January and February 2014. The internship is part-time and ideally applicants should be able to commit to working in the central London office 4 days per week, from 10am - 5pm for 6 weeks, however this is flexible. Internships are unpaid but interns are reimbursed for travel and lunch expenses incurred while working at JUSTICE.
