Milton Stewart Fellows Summer Internships: A Global Understanding of the Practice of Law
A critical mission of the Center on the Global Legal Profession is to enhance students’ understanding of how law is practiced across cultures. In 2010 the CGLP embarked on a first-of-its-kind summer internship program in India, placing six interns in positions at law firms and NGOs. In 2011 the program expanded to include two placements in Brazil and nine placements in India. In 2012 the program continued to flourish as 14 students were placed in internships in India, South Korea and Brazil. With the start of the application cycle for 2013, we anticipate being able to place students in internships in these countries as well as China.
1L and 2L students interested in the 2013 Milton Stewart Fellows Overseas Internship Program are invited to apply starting October 22, 2012, and running through January 4, 2013. A limited number of positions are available in India, Brazil, China, and South Korea. Application must be made through Symplicity, where students will find a job posting for each country of placement. Students are welcome to apply to more than one country.
Application requires submission of a resume and a three-part application that includes (1) a list of languages other than English that the applicant knows; (2) a list of study abroad experience and/or significant overseas travel that the applicant has completed; (3) a personal statement of no more than 750 words in which the applicant explains why he or she wants to take part in the Stewart Fellows Program and, more specifically, why he or she seeks an internship experience in a specific country of placement.
Selected applicants will be invited to first-round interviews in late January/early February 2013.
