Our Human Rights Law Program (HRLP) offers a robust work experience program for students undertaking their Practical Legal Training (PLT). Approved students must commit to volunteering for 2–3 days per week for a minimum of 60 days if they are not a current volunteer. Shorter PLT placements may be negotiable only for current volunteers in the HRLP program.
Other types of formal Student Placements, such as for paralegal roles to fulfil undergraduate credits, may be available for shorter periods if program capacity permits. Students must commit to 2-3 days per week for the duration of their placement.
Please note that the HRLP will not retrospectively approve volunteering hours toward a PLT placement, university credits, or other student placement accreditation.
To apply to undertake your PLT or student placement with the HRLP, please send a cover letter and CV together with your institution’s requirements to email@example.com
