About ILI-ACLE’s Summer Internship Programme

Each year ILI-ACLE draws a talented pool of students and young professionals in its competitive Internship Programme. Over the years we have hosted interns from Harvard Law School, Georgetown Law Center, NYU Law School, Vanderbilt Law School, Temple Law School, Case Western Reserve School of Law, Pacific McGeorge School of Law, Trinity College, Dublin, among others.
 Internships at the Institute are rewarding experiences for law students with drive and interest in legal and judicial reform and project implementation – with a focus on the African continent. Interns take part in any number of activities that are being implemented at their time of internship. These include assisting with the preparation of seminars (including curriculum development) and gaining insight into project implementation and management by assisting with ongoing technical assistance projects. Interns assist in conducting research, drafting reports, attending meetings and engaging in related administration. They also have an unparalleled opportunity to meet legal and other professional specialists at the forefront of public and private development in sub-Saharan Africa and across the globe.
