Legal Intern – Scotland Based

JUSTICE invites applications for our 2019 winter internship.

We will be recruiting a Legal Intern primarily working from home, based in Scotland. With occasional travel to London.

The successful applicant will work closely with our legal staff: conducting legal research; providing commentary on draft legislation; assisting with third party interventions; and supporting working parties of our membership exploring critical issues of law reform. The internships will provide the opportunity to develop research and drafting skills and to engage with litigation and law-making processes.

Given the nature of our work, applications are sought from UK law graduates only with a degree from a Scottish university. This includes people who expect to have completed a law degree or GDL or are a CILEX graduate by the time they start the internship. Applicants should demonstrate an interest in the challenges affecting the justice system – whether criminal, civil or administrative – and have an understanding of the UK’s constitutional and human rights framework with an appreciation of the particular justice system challenges in Scotland.

The internships will take place from January for three months, though we can be flexible with the start and end dates. The intern will be expected to work full time during this period and will be paid the London Living Wage (£1,600 per month).

To be considered for these internships please complete the attached application form ensuring you answer the questions relating to the  person specification which can be found in the Job Description  and email to jobs@justice.org.uk.

Please note we will only accept applications from JUSTICE members. If you are not already a member, you can join here.
