The British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) is one of the leading applied legal research organisations in the world and the only independent international law research charities in the UK. BIICL undertakes high quality research, events, publications and training in public international law, private international law, international investment law, international human rights law, comparative law, competition law, European law and the rule of law, as well as across these areas. It engages with solicitors, barristers, in-house counsel, government lawyers, judges, international organisations, academics, and students, as well as others who are interested in these areas in the UK and around the world. Its research is based on deep knowledge applied to practical issues, with the aim of influencing legal and policy decisions, and is primarily in relation to issues outside the UK. Recent global justice research projects include: protection of education in insecurity and armed conflict, international criminal law, access to judicial remedies for victims of human rights violations by corporations, treaty law and practice, reparations and transnational justice. Interns work directly with the researchers on one project or a number of projects, assist with events and publications, link into the BIICL network of those interested in these fields, and gain an excellent insight into the many areas of contemporary international legal issues affecting global justice. It is also a wonderful opportunity to engage in international law in practice in a congenial environment in London. See www.biicl.org.
