The ABA Section of International Law’s Africa Committee is Seeking Two Interns for the Committee’s Newsletter, Africa Law Today

The ABA Section of International Law’s Africa Committee is seeking two interns to work on the Committee’s quarterly newsletter, Africa Law Today, and to contribute to a variety of other research related tasks undertaken by the committee. The mission of the Committee is to interact with lawyers, academics, students and others with an interest in African legal affairs.

The Committee is comprised of nearly 400 practitioners in the public interest sector, private practice, academics and other fields. 


The Africa Law Today student internship allows law students to have the opportunity to edit, proofread and cite check articles submitted to the Africa Committee for publication. The internship also allows the students to engage in meaningful research on a wide array of issues in conjunction with Committee Leadership. The students are exposed to work from experts and colleagues in areas ranging from human rights and AIDS policy research to the effects of international conventions and treaties on African business and development. The internship enables interns to become involved in the committee through monthly committee conference calls and provides a vast array of resources and networking opportunities pertaining to the legal communities throughout the African continent.

Work will be done remotely, though you must have access to the internet and email and involves approximately 25 hours per semester.

The deadline to apply is July 15, 2013.
