Volunteers at a Human Rights meeting

If you’re interested in a career in the notoriously competitive legal profession, a voluntary placement with a well-respected law firm overseas could be a valuable addition to your CV.

We offer a wide variety of placements suitable for law graduates, law professionals wishing to take a career break, law students (during holidays) and people who have completed a law conversion course

In some destinations we also have some placements for pre-university students thinking of joining the legal profession and people with no formal law experience who have good communication skills and a desire to work in the field of human rights.

These overseas voluntary placements with Projects Abroad enable you to gain a unique insight into day-to-day legal practice, and the rules of law, while working in well-respected legal organisations in Africa or Asia.

Please let us know if you have any preferences so we can match you to the most appropriate placement.

Emily Dennis, Law & Human Rights volunteer in South Africa"Before Cape Town, I really knew nothing about human rights. I learned more in my month of interning then I ever could have imagined. It was the first time in my life I felt like I was doing tangible work, and at the same time, I was actually touching the lives of people."
