KLRCA'S LEGAL INTERNSHIP PROGRAMME

KLRCA'S LEGAL INTERNSHIP PROGRAMME

Internship Period: 2nd January 2018 to 29th June 2018

THE PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE

Our internship programme is designed to enable undergraduate and postgraduate students to learn about Arbitration and Alternative Dispute Resolutions. Our aim is to stretch the intellectual capacities of our interns and give them a sense of what Arbitration and Alternative Dispute Resolution is about in preparation for their future careers. The KLRCA internship is in no way connected with recruitment for employment but can be a decisive stepping stone in a further career.

As there is a strong interest in our programme from students around the world but limited supervision capacity on our part, we limit number of internship positions offered each year.

FEATURES OF THE PROGRAMME

  • The programme is normally full time; i.e. interns are expected to work five days a week (8.30 a.m. – 5.30 p.m.) in the department which has selected them, carrying out their tasks under the supervision of a staff member – their supervisor
  • The interns will be requested to undertake tasks in connection with the ongoing projects of KLRCA. The internship’s assignment could include:
    • Assisting with the research and preparation of legal and administrative texts or studies about international / domestic arbitration
    • Assisting with the drafting of promotional material, website-documents and pages
    • Conducting related background studies and internet based research
    • Undertaking ad hoc legal and administrative tasks as requested
  • Assisting with the collection and analysis of case law in the field of domestic and international arbitration
  • Interns are strongly encouraged to meet with and interview members KLRCA staff and the KLRCA’s panel of arbitrators / mediators. This represents invaluable opportunities to gain insight about the process of dispute resolution mechanisms.

REMUNERATION

Our programme is designed to help interns develop their intellectual capacities first and foremost. However, we provide a monthly allowance to assist with living expenses.

Overseas applicants should note that we are unable to cover cost of travel and accommodation, although we will help applicants to find reasonably priced accommodation to the extent that is possible.

REPORT WRITING

Interns are required to submit a paper (between 1000 – 1500 words) on Arbitration at KLRCA at the completion of the internship programme. The report should focus on the areas covered during the training and how the training has benefited the intern.
