Summer Internships

The internship programme forms part of HRLC's commitment to broaden students' understanding of human rights practice and provide opportunities to gain work experience.

Internships are available exclusively to University of Nottingham postgraduate and undergraduate students in law. The positions are all paid, part-time or full time posts that typically run for three to eight weeks, from June to August  each year.

Internships not only provide students who are interested in a career in human rights with a deeper understanding of a particular human rights field, but also improve transferable and practical skills such as team work, research and analytical skills and time-management.
