The Oxford Global Justice Internship Programme is a programme initiated by the Public International Law Group within the Oxford Law Faculty. The aim of the programme is to provide financial assistance to Oxford law graduates seeking valuable work experience in international law. The programme will provide support to graduate students within the Faculty and recent Oxford law graduates who wish to undertake internships at international courts or tribunals, international organizations or public interest organizations that work on issues of public international law.
This internship programme is generously supported by the Planethood Foundation. A significant part of the funds received from the Foundation will be used to fund work which promotes the aims of international criminal justice and transitional justice. However, applications will be welcomed from candidates interested in working in other areas of international law.
This year the following 8 successful applicants were awarded funding from the Oxford Global Justice Internship Programme. The allocated funding will provide students with an opportunity to apply their knowledge of international law in practical ways. Students will be given the opportunity to develop their interest in international law and will obtain a valuable platform for further work in the area.
