African Internship Opportunity

Listen up African Law students!
 We have an opening specifically for you!
The Break – Down:

The African Court Research Initiative (ACRI) is sponsoring an internship project during Fall 2016 related to international criminal law and justice. Applications are currently being accepted for the position of Research Intern to work on an Open Society Initiative project. The key focus of the project will be on the African Union’s June 2014 protocol (“Malabo Protocol”) conferring criminal, human rights and general jurisdiction on the African Court of Justice and Human and People’s Rights and its international legal, historical, political and social framework.

Interns will work under the supervision and guidance of Professor Kamari Clarke and Charles Jalloh, and in collaboration with other research members at Florida International University faculty of law and partners at the African Union. The internship will provide participants an opportunity to develop a greater understanding of legal and political developments related to the rise of the rule of law (international criminal law). Interns will develop research skills and knowledge of the workings of international law that will better prepare them for future studies and eventual employment.
