We are happy to offer internship opportunities.

Internships are unpaid, yet we try to offer interns the possibility to attend and travel on conferences and seminars, if available at the time of the internship. We also welcome students who are part of an Erasmus programme or a university funded placement. Applications from persons living overseas and also based in Malta are welcome, however the internship is only offered in person in our offices in Malta!

We ensure that our interns are fully integrated within our Operational Team, and that the internship is an interesting and learning experience. Each intern is assigned a staff member as supervisor, also to ensure constant mentoring and guidance. Induction training is provided to all interns, also to gauge interests, areas of expertise and capacities. A reference letter, or letter confirming the internship will be provided to all interns at the end of their traineeship if they require.

We also do our best to offer a fun experience!

We try to match the skills of the intern with the needs of the office and therefore offer an internship that can be tailored to your experience and training. You could therefore be involved in the following:

  • regular office meetings to discuss projects, activities, developments and strategies;
  • research and data collection;
  • administration and logistics;
  • IT, social media and database upkeep;
  • legal assistance and/or client relations;
  • participation in seminars, conferences and trainings (local or overseas); or
  • organisation of our activities.

We generally look for students or new graduates with an interest in law and human rights, however we are also keen to offer internships to people with administrative and/or IT skills.

  • excellent reading and writing skills (English/Maltese – any other languages would be considered an asset);
  • an understanding of human rights principles and values;
  • academic training or qualifications that match the skills we are looking for (law, human rights, IT, accounts, business management);
  • enthusiasm and initiative;
  • minimum 4 months’ internship duration.

Send the following to

  • a covering letter explaining your interests;
  • an updated CV;
  • an indication of when and for how long you are available for.

Are you a law student or young graduate looking for an exciting place to undergo your prattika?
