Outline of the organisation
The IUCN Environmental Law Centre (ELC) has a long and proud history of achievements and a longstanding association with the City of Bonn, Germany, where it was first established in 1970. From humble beginnings, the ELC is now recognised around the world as a leading global centre of excellence in environmental law.
The ELC offers a volunteer internship programme to applicants with an interest in environmental law. The programme provides an insight into what it is like to be a part of the fascinating world of an international organisation working in the field of environmental law and policy. Particular assignments are determined according to a mix of factors, of which the intern's level and qualifications, coupled with the particular needs of the ELC at the time, are the most important.
Internships are unpaid and last a minimum of three months.
- be between 20 and 30 years of age;
- be enrolled in a university, or higher-level institution, either in environmental law or in a course of studies with a strong legal component;
- have a thorough knowledge of written and spoken English and knowledge of another language, preferably French or Spanish; and
- be computer-literate, preferably with experience in databases and internet searches.
To apply, please submit the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- a CV in English;
- a motivation letter;
- a signed application form (available online);
- a signed letter of agreement with desired dates (available online); and
- proof of university enrolment valid for the desired dates of the internship.
