International Internship Program

The University of Chicago Law School administers an international internship program in which students who have completed at least one year of basic American law study (“JD study”) are considered for summer  employment by employers outside the United States. The purpose of the program is to bring together students who have an interest in international practice with employers who will provide supervision and experience in legal practice.

Preferred Time Period of Internship

Please note that University of Chicago Law Students who are completing their first year of study will finish their final examinations on June 8, 2012 and report back for our on-campus interview program in August 2012. Students completing their second year resume classes in late September/early October 2012.

Describe minimum internship requirements, if any, in the following areas:
Estimate the amount and form of compensation, if any, to the student:

Compensation is not a prerequisite to participation in the program; however, a stipend that can cover the student's basic summer living costs will certainly make it possible for more students to apply for an employer’s position. If you have an established summer program for students in your country, the conditions already offered might make a suitable starting point; if you have no existing program, you might consider an hourly, weekly, or monthly wage; a stipend that would cover living and travel expenses, or direct reimbursement for travel and living expenses.
