    Internship
    Law and Human Rights

    These internships are ideal if you are a law student or a graduate seeking practical experience in human rights work. However, the work is also suitable if you are a student building a resume for law school or if you have a general interest in law and human rights. The experiences that you will have while interning in Ghana will give your resume an edge over the competition.

    On the Human Rights program you can expect to be busy at a full-time placement. This placement is best for interns with a strong interest in affecting change for the better while keeping in mind the long-term aim of the projects. Placements are demanding and must be taken seriously.

    You can expect to operate in urban and rural locations, meet people at all levels of society, and engage with international and domestic authorities and organizations. It is important to demonstrate cultural understanding and flexibility. Our mandate is to empower individuals and communities as well as nurture a supportive framework for human rights rather than impose western ideals on Ghanaian society.

As with all internships, you should be prepared to undertake some tasks such as proofreading, filing, and answering the phone, but provided you show enthusiasm and willingness, your English speaking colleagues will be happy to give you insight into their area of expertise. You’ll go home with a new set of skills and a good understanding of how the business world works.

      During the internship, interns are expected to be punctual, professional and hard working. You will be required to work an average of 30 hours per week, usually Monday-Friday. When you arrive at work on your first day, you will be intorduced to members of staff who will be able to advise and support you during your internship, and of course our Ghana volunteers staff are always available to help.
