Legal Intern: The duties of legal interns in CASS include, but are not limited to assisting in the provision of advice relating to the preparation of case files and on sharing material in accordance with the IIIM’s mandate; assisting in the review of the IIIM’s evidence collection; conducting research on domestic and international criminal law as well as research on factual and policy issues pertaining to the work of the IIIM; drafting meeting minutes; and cite checking, compiling and collating materials.
Research & Analysis Intern (R&A): The R&A intern is assigned to perform research and analysis, examine events, personalities, organisations, and crimes under review by the IIIM. An intern participates in the research and collation of information, determining its value and integrating it into the evidential development of the broader issues being pursued.
It is particularly useful for interns to have legal training or experience in international criminal or humanitarian law.
Applicants must have a university degree or be in the final stages of their undergraduate studies in a relevant field (e.g. political science, Middle Eastern studies, conflict studies or other analysis based program).
English and French are the working languages of the United Nations Secretariat. Fluency in oral and written English is essential. Knowledge of other languages, particularly Arabic and French, is an asset.
