Jobs and Internships

Our Placement Directory is a wide-reaching collection of short term and longer term legal placements currently available at NGOs around the world. It offers those from legal backgrounds unique opportunities to join the fight against poverty, ill health, lack of education and environmental destruction, by working closely with organisations pursuing the Millennium Development Goals.

In addition to various placements for more experienced lawyers, the directory also includes opportunities for students, trainees, and newly-qualified lawyers.

We update the Directory regularly and are constantly seeking new placement opportunities. If your organisation offers legal placements or hopes to in future, and would like for these to be included in the Directory, please contact probono@a4id.org
