Description

Internship subjects enable students to apply their academic learning to a professional context and in so doing, produce better equipped legal graduates. Internships undertaken overseas have the additional benefit of exposing students to legal practice in a global context. This subject provides students with an opportunity to gain international and practical legal experience so as to develop professional skills through 'real-world' legal work. The subject teaches students to reflect on their practical learning and its relationship to their academic education and legal skills. An internship is an invaluable workplace supplement to a student's academic program and can help to enrich and enliven the classroom experience. The international experience promotes crosscultural awareness, adaptability and resourcefulness and encourages students to think of themselves as future global professionals.

This subject is taught at master's level. Students achieve the advanced subject learning outcomes of self-management, critical reflection and professional responsibility through their participation in the internship and pre-departure preparations, their critical reflection and their debriefing presentation. The subject requires a placement with an international host organisation that can be arranged in two ways. Either, the Faculty provides placements over July (Spring session) or December/January/February (Summer session), ordinarily for four weeks. Alternatively, students can apply to have a project they have organised independently approved by the Faculty. Students can view the available placements and the application form on the Faculty website. The website and application form explain what is required for application and how students are selected for placements or self-arranged internships.
