Summer Legal Internships

The IJM summer legal internship program provides exposure to legal work and helps participants develop skills in legal research, writing briefs and preparing case documentation. IJM interns have the unique opportunity to join teams of Christian attorneys in Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia and Latin America to help protect clients from sex trafficking, slavery, unprosecuted rape, illegal detention, police brutality and illegal land seizure.

Each field office is directed by an IJM Field Office Director who is experienced in human rights law, Christian leadership and office management. The field offices range in size from 10 to 60 people, allowing for ample opportunity to gain exposure to the frontlines of international human rights work.
