Law Internships Abroad

Develop a law career with legal work experience

If you’re looking to launch a career in law, finding legal work experience abroad is the ideal way to get your gavel in the door while also seeing a little of the world at the same time.

The real beauty of law internships abroad is that available programs specialise across the legal field, including areas such as corporate law, family law, immigration law, human rights, consumer rights, and many more. If you already know where you want to specialise you can choose accordingly, and if you’re still not sure you can sample a field to see if it’s right for you. There’s also a range of destinations available, from major hubs to developing countries, each posing unique benefits and challenges.

Placements can be situated in a busy, city location such as Beijing in China or Sydney in Australia whilst others may be in developing cities such as Buenos Aires in Argentina or Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia. Please note, for those based in developing cities, facilities might be more basic than what volunteers could be used to at home and that tasks might take a little while longer to get done as opposed to the fast-paced working environments in the city. This could in turn, make them a lot more interesting though.

Law internships give you the chance to work alongside professionals and gain valuable experience, while seeing how the law works in other countries. And, of course, there’s the chance to travel and meet new people. Whatever your goals in the legal industry, you’ll find a law internship to set you on the right path.
