JUSTICE invites applications for The Kalisher Trust internship at JUSTICE.
The Kalisher intern works with the legal team on a range of criminal justice matters. As an intern you will be an invaluable member of the team, assisting in the development of policy lines and providing research and analysis to support arguments for or against law reform. If Justice is involved in a third-party intervention during your internship, you will be undertaking comparative research and possibly drafting submissions. You will accompany the team to meetings with law-makers and NGOs, speaking engagements and events as well as court hearings. You will attend internal meetings and are expected to engage with colleagues as a member of the JUSTICE staff.
The Kalisher scholarships are intended to encourage and assist those intending to practice at the Criminal Bar who demonstrate “exceptional promise but modest means”.
Given the nature of the work, applications are sought from law graduates only. This includes people who expect to have completed a law degree or GDL or are a CILEX graduate by the time they start the internship. Applicants should demonstrate an interest in criminal law and the criminal justice system. They should have excellent written and spoken communication skills.
The Kalisher Trust internship at JUSTICE will take place over three months from October 2020 to December 2020, and will be based in the London office. Interns will be paid an award of £5,000 in total.
