The IBA offers internships to all postgraduate law students and newly qualified lawyers. Interns at the London office work closely with the Human Rights Institute, Legal Policy and Research Unit, or Executive Director. Human rights interns have completed research projects on Islamic law, the independence of the judiciary, the death penalty and terrorism, covering countries such as Darfur, DRC, Egypt and Zimbabwe. Interns have worked on trial observations, intervention letters and developments in international criminal law.
Legal Policy and Research interns will support the work of the IBA Legal Policy and Research Unit. Current projects include: anti-corruption; whistleblower protections; women business lawyers initiatives; harassment in the legal profession; sextortion; business and human rights; disruptive innovative technology; blockchain in the legal profession; and cybersecurity.
