  • an optional post-internship academic research paper under the supervision of NYU faculty or staff.

All current full-time 1L, 2L, LLM, and JSD students are eligible to apply.

Host internship organizations include international tribunals; UN and regional organizations; and NGOs in locations as diverse as Beijing, Bogotá, Buenos Aires, Johannesburg, Kampala, London, New Delhi, New York, Ramallah, and Washington, D.C.. A complete list of host organizations, including descriptions, is include in the application packet below.
