International Court of Justice, the principal judicial organ of the United Nations, is looking for interns. The internship, which lasts between one and three months, is offering the opportunity to both students and young professionals who are in the early stages of their careers. They can put their knowledge and experience into practice, while performing certain tasks for the Court under the supervision of Registry officials.
Only a limited number of internships can be offered throughout the year. Placements are, however, possible in all departments and divisions of the Registry. The working languages of the Court are English and French.
Candidates should note that internships are unremunerated and that they themselves are responsible for meeting immigration requirements, arranging travel and accommodation, and obtaining valid medical/ accident insurance cover.
To apply for an internship, candidates are requested to submit their curriculum vitae along with a covering letter for the attention of the Registrar to recruitment — firstname.lastname@example.org. Candidates are also welcome to submit any of the following documents in Word or PDF format in support of their application:
- A copy of their official academic record;
- Letters of reference;
- A writing sample.
- Please note that email attachments may not exceed 20 MB in size. If the files exceed 20 MB, please ensure that you compress them and/ or send multiple emails.
