ILSA is Looking for a Fall Intern

ILSA is currently looking for an intern to work in our new offices, located in Washington D.C., for the upcoming fall semester.  Generally, legal education in the U.S. and elsewhere focuses upon domestic or local law. ILSA is dedicated to supplementing this traditional approach with opportunities for study, research and career networking which concentrates on international and transnational law.  You will be working alongside legal professionals with the desire to improve the international community.

Interns will be based in ILSA’s Washington D.C. headquarters and will be expected to commit to working 15 hours per week for the fall quarter with the possibility of continuing through the entire year. Qualified applicants will be motivated, friendly, and detail oriented. Our interns typically help with day to day operations around the office, including filing, research, editing publications, and mailings.  It is possible for students with or without prior work experience to succeed in this position. ILSA will work with your school to arrange academic credit for this position.

To apply for an internship with ILSA, please submit a cover letter and resume to mszuminski@ilsa.org
