About the Summer Leitner Internship Program

Over the summer, the Internship Program provides students with $6,000 grants to work with international human rights organizations full-time for ten weeks over the summer. Applicants complete a detailed proposal and select an organizational partner, such as a non-governmental organization or UN agency, with whom they will work. Upon their return, Leitner Interns file a report summarizing their experience and make a presentation to the law school community. Students awarded grants are also encouraged to develop their scholarly interest in the subject matter with an eye towards producing a note or other publication. To that end, the Center offers a human rights drafting course for Leitner Interns who wish to turn their summer experiences into a note for submission to the Fordham Law Review or International Law Journal.

Summer Leitner Interns are also encouraged to take part in the Leitner Intern Blog (http://leitnerinterns.blogspot.com/), which chronicles their summer experiences on the website. Since it began in 2004, the Program has sent law students to countries all over the world including Brazil, Costa Rica, Cambodia, Cuba, Ecuador, France, Ghana, Guatemala, Haiti, India, Iran, Israel, Northern Ireland, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, the Philippines, Romania, Serbia, South Africa, Tanzania, Turkey, and Zimbabwe.
