Why Intern Here?
Ranked by Kaplan as one of the top potential internships for pre-law students, working for the CICC would be an opportunity to gain meaningful hands-on experience in the exact field I hope to pursue. The CICC is the perfect chance to combine my passions for humanitarianism, global affairs, and international law with my past experiences as a community leader and social entrepreneur. By synthesizing all of these aspects of my character, I hope to grow closer towards my eventual goal of changing the world through humanitarian efforts.
What would the internship entail?
As an intern at the CICC in New York, I would work firsthand on high-profile international cases. Some of the most meaningful benefits of this journey will include:
- Attending United Nations meetings
- Gaining courtroom experience before law school
- Networking with international leaders
- Gaining direct exposure to humanitarian law
- Earning international professional experience
Aside from the evident value of these benefits, the greatest advantage of this internship will be the ability to give a voice to the millions of persecuted individuals who have suffered the injustices of power abuse. Ultimately, this experience will be the first of many steps towards a career of vigorously pursuing this mission.
