This course affords students the opportunity to work in one of the specialist centres within the Faculty of Law which undertakes advocacy or research on aspects of policy and practice relating to an area of social justice. The Program provides formal and informal training, as well as supervised practical experience, in planning and implementing key aspects of research, writing, advocacy and related activities.


Each successful applicant for participation in the program is allocated as an intern to a particular Centre at the outset of the session. The Centre will assign a supervisor for each intern. Students will work under the supervision of that Supervisor within the Centre for the duration of the internship.

Interns are required to attend their Centre for the equivalent of one day each week over 12 weeks, by arrangement between the intern and the Centre and confirmed with the Program Coordinator.

The range of projects in which the intern will be involved will be determined according to the project priorities of the Centre. However, in general it is expected that an intern’s duties will consist of a combination of research, project administrative, editing, writing, event coordination, preparing background materials, briefing papers, liaising with other organisations and doing relevant work of a substantive nature.


Interns will be placed in a class for their UNSW Law internship (in House) subject. There will be 6 hours of classes over the semester usually undertaken in 3 times 2 hour blocks.There will also be a presentation session for students to present on their experiences and work at the Centre

Attendance by interns at the Centre and at program seminars is mandatory. Students whose attendance falls below the specified 12 days (or equivalent) or who do not attend Program Seminars without a medical certificate or other adequate evidence will be deemed not to have completed the subject requirements and will not be eligible to pass the course.
