Our internship program
Get experience working for a not-for-profit legal organisation, grow your networks and get behind-the-scenes exposure to a range of alternative legal careers with our internship program.
Our interns get exposure to all areas of the Foundation's work -- research, education, grants and communications -- and have the opportunity to visit some of Victoria's most prestigious legal institutions and meet the people who work in them.
Applications for our 2020/21 Internship are now open
Interns will be paired with a Foundation manager or supervisor and will work across the teams depending on capacity of staff and the interests of the intern. Interns can generally expect the following:
- Exposure to all areas of work
- Visits to major Victorian jurisdictions and institutions
- Attendance at all appropriate meetings and events
- Experience researching and drafting documents or other materials
- Understanding of systems and processes which underpin the work.
The internship aims to give you an understanding of the work of Victoria Law Foundation and exposure to alternative careers in the legal sector. It is an opportunity to see a broad range of activities which support Victorians in understanding the law. Please note that your supervisor at the Foundation may not be a lawyer, and that your allocated project may not be strictly legal in nature.
Who can apply
You must be a current law student at a Victorian university undertaking either an undergraduate law degree or a JD (juris doctorate).
