The Australian Law Reform Commission provides opportunities for current law students to work alongside Commissioners and legal staff as legal interns. They are receiving applications for the Semester 1 program until 5 February.
The ALRC accepts students who are in their penultimate or final year of an undergraduate or graduate law degree, at the time of the internship, from any university including overseas institutions.
As there is strong demand for internships, there is a formal selection process. The ALRC will only consider applications that address the selection criteria:
- strong legal research skills;
- ability to analyse and communicate complex information;
- excellent written communication skills, including the ability to write clear and concise documents, including research briefs and memos;
- ability to work independently with professional guidance; and
- work experience, or interest in, law reform and/or social policy development.
The ALRC may request that applicants attend an interview as part of the selection process.
