by | Jun 20, 2022

Deadline: 10pm, 3 July 2022

JUSTICE invites applications for The Kalisher Trust internship at JUSTICE.

The Kalisher intern works with our legal team on a range of criminal justice matters. As an intern you will be an invaluable member of our team, assisting in the development of our policy lines and providing research and analysis to support arguments for or against law reform. If we are involved in a third party intervention during your internship, you will be undertaking comparative research and possibly drafting submissions. You will accompany us to meetings with law-makers and NGOs, speaking engagements and events as well as court hearings. You will attend internal meetings and are expected to engage with colleagues as a member of the JUSTICE staff.

The Kalisher scholarships are intended to encourage and assist those intending to practice at the Criminal Bar who demonstrate “exceptional promise but modest means”.

Given the nature of our work, applications are sought from UK law graduates only. This includes people who expect to have completed a law degree or GDL or are a CILEX graduate by the time they start the internship. Applicants should demonstrate an interest in criminal law and the criminal justice system. They should have excellent written and spoken communication skills.

The Kalisher Trust internship at JUSTICE will take place over three months from October 2022 to December 2022.

The JUSTICE team are currently working largely remotely. Staff members have access to office space in London two days a week, however attendance is optional. The Legal Intern will have regular video calls with their line managers, the policy team, and wider JUSTICE staff.

Interns will be paid an award of £5,000 in total.
