This week, the Human Trafficking Institute is launching its International Legal Fellows program. The program is open to recent law graduates and will provide them with practical legal experience within a Partner Country’s criminal justice system.
Each International Legal Fellow will work closely with a component of a Partner Country’s criminal justice system (e.g., Ministry of Justice, Specialized Investigative or Prosecutorial Units for Trafficking in Persons cases, Judiciary, etc.) and operate as an Institute liaison. The fellowship lasts one year, beginning September 2017. Each Fellow position will be funded through a combination of grants from law schools, law firms, and an Institute stipend. Applications are currently being accepted. For more information and to apply, click here.
