Student doing their internship


The summer internship program is designed for students passionate about service. Whether in Uganda working for the supreme court or with International Justice Mission in a field office, the mission is to serve these people and organizations with excellence as they advance the ball on global justice around the world.

We believe a well-rounded education includes both academics and hands-on training. We offer a few classes each year for our students to expand their knowledge of global injustice and gain practical wisdom on how they can engage these issues and use their law degree to make a difference.
