Law Internships in Africa
If you’re looking for a law internship abroad, and you’re interested in working within a nonprofit context, have a look at our opportunities in South Africa. We offer law internships in Cape Town, with cause-driven teams that provide legal services to members of disadvantaged communities that need pro bono legal support. As an intern, you can be part of a feminist legal center that advances women’s rights through strategic litigation, advocacy, and training. You can also join a nonprofit organization that offers legal advice to refugees, or an organization that provides vital support – legal and otherwise – to victims of gender based violence. Either way, whichever nonprofit law internship you join, you’ll gain a wealth of practical work experience, while you become familiar with the power legal work can have in a humanitarian context.
These law internships in Africa are resume-boosting, as well as highly rewarding. Regardless of the type of law career you envision for yourself, doing a nonprofit law internship offers an inspiring springboard for what comes next. Moreover, this time is an opportunity to live and work abroad – to experience a different way of life, soak up a foreign culture, and enjoy a travel adventure.
