The Oxford Public International Law group is delighted to announce awards to 5 students under the Global Justice Internship Programme. Thanks to the generosity of The Planethood Foundation, the Oxford Law Faculty is able to provide support for students wishing to undertake internships in international law. It is becoming increasingly difficult to commence a career in international law and global justice without first completing internships. The Oxford Global Justice Internship Programme offers students a platform from which to build a career in international law. We are delighted that we are able to support the following successful applicants and provide them with an opportunity to apply their knowledge of international law in practical ways.
