Internship with the International Law Students Association

ILSA is a non-profit association of students and young lawyers dedicated to the study and promotion of international law. Generally, legal education in the U.S. and elsewhere focuses on domestic or local law. ILSA is dedicated to supplementing this traditional approach with opportunities for study, research, and career networking which concentrates on international and transnational law. 

Interns will be based in ILSA’s Washington, DC Headquarters and will be expected to commit to working 10 to 15 hours a week. Qualified applicants should be collaborative, tech-savvy, and highly detail oriented individuals. Interns will be fully integrated in ILSA’s executive office and will have hands-on experience working on various projects and aiding the office with administrative tasks. The internship will fully expose interns to the international nonprofit sector and allow them to gain valuable communication and written skills. This position is unpaid but ILSA will work with your school to arrange academic credit for this position.
