The International Court of Justice offers internships of one to three months to students and young professionals who are in the early stages of their careers. The internship is an opportunity for them to put their knowledge and experience into practice, while performing certain tasks for the Court under the supervision of Registry officials.
Given the size of the organization, only a limited number of internships can be offered throughout the year. Placements are, however, possible in all departments and divisions of the Registry. The working languages of the Court are English and French.
Candidates should note that internships are unremunerated and that they themselves are responsible for meeting immigration requirements, arranging travel and accommodation and obtaining valid medical/accident insurance cover. In addition, they are required to sign a statement, undertaking to keep strictly confidential any information obtained during the course of their internship. Upon completion of the internship, a certificate is issued to them, summarizing the tasks performed and providing an evaluation of the work done.
Please note that the completion of an internship in the Registry does not increase the likelihood of future employment at the Court or the United Nations.
