Considering that you are all law students and that you will all do an internship to gain practical knowledge. But what if you don`t gain any experience in your field after a month of internship?

Getting a summer internship at an NGO is much easier than finding a postgraduate position for several reasons. First, as noted earlier, funding for summer internships for law students is often available through law schools and other organizations. If you are able to volunteer, make this clear in your cover letters, as an “independent” law student is often very attractive to an NGO. Second, NGOs do not expect students to have the expertise they expect from lawyers. In addition, the time required – both for students and organizations – is relatively short. So you need to be optimistic about your ability to land a great international position and think ambitiously, about where you`d most like to work. While we`re optimistic about getting a great summer position, you need to understand the reality of the hiring process. In addition to preparation, patience, perseverance and flexibility are required. The American Red Cross offers paid internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students during the summer.

Finally, “Don`t put all your eggs in one basket.” That`s where flexibility comes in. Sometimes situations arise when you have to completely rethink your summer plans. For example, despite excellent reviews from former articling students and well-established ties to your law school, an employer may decide not to hire articling students for a summer. Similarly, students were offered jobs, which were then turned down due to turbulence in the area where the internships are located. Without notice, organizations may decide that they need a longer commitment than the summer, or they may decide to hire law students from another school or country.

In these inevitable times of impatience and worry about not having a summer job, you should use your network (which you have already built to identify NGOs) to support you and help you find a great internship.
