Each year, UNIDROIT welcomes a limited number of interns to participate in the work of the Secretariat on one of the subjects (including non legislative activities, in particular the data base UNILEX) on the Institute's current Work Programme, or on work associated with other UNIDROIT instruments. Interns will be generally expected to conduct research on specific aspects of the subject chosen/assigned and/or to prepare concept notes.
Interns must have a law degree (preferably postgraduate) or in any case be at least in their final year of law school. They may also spend part of their time carrying out personal research.
Translators (French/English) specialised in the legal field (graduated or in the final year of their degree) may also apply. Internships in the UNIDROIT library are also offered to students on information and library sciences.
All applicants must have a good knowledge of both spoken and written English (knowledge of any other language is also appreciated).
The length of an internship is two (exceptionally three) consecutive months (excluding the month of August).
Regretfully, UNIDROIT cannot remunerate interns who are further required to have adequate medical insurance coverage during their stay in Rome.
Individual applications (curriculum vitae and a letter of intent) should be sent to Ms Laura Tikanvaara: firstname.lastname@example.org
For institutional co-operation (universities, research institutes, governmental entities) please contact Mme Frédérique Mestre: email@example.com
