 Summer Internship Opportunities

Internships are invaluable opportunities for students to gain work experience in private law firms, multinational companies, courts, governmental agencies, and non-governmental organizations while gaining international exposure and aptitude. These experiences provide students with practical applications of their academic programs as well as integration into the legal culture of another country. They also provide networking opportunities and contacts that last throughout participants' careers. Some Tulane Summer Programs offer them explicitly, but others have opportunities that just take a little investigation by students.

Application Form

To apply for any of the opportunities below, please complete our internship application form. Internships are available only to students who successfully complete the associated academic portion of the summer law program.

The deadline to apply for most internships is March 15th. Students will be contacted after this time regarding their application decision. Please contact your program director to inquire about later opportunities.

For more information about opportunities available through the Cambridge program, please contact the Program Director, Professor Stephen Griffin for more information.

Students participating in Tulane Law’s summer program in Rhodes may be eligible for judicial clerkships, extern- or internships with law firms, non-governmental organizations or international governmental organizations specializing in the areas of admiralty, law of the sea, or marine environmental management. Thus far the Administration has secured several placements options in Greece (Rhodes, Athens/Piraeus), and the United States. Additional placement options are likely to become available in other Mediterranean countries, such as Malta and Cyprus, and possibly London, Brussels, New York and Rovaniemi, Finland. Contact the Program Director, Professor Martin Davies for more information.

A limited number of internship opportunities are available with prestigious law firms in Paris. Internships are available only to students who register and enroll in the academic portion of the summer law program. Selections will be made by the director on a competitive basis based on CVs and an interview, concerning such factors as background/fit and French level. Students must speak at least “functional” French in order to qualify. The length or duration of the unpaid internship is normally three to four weeks, but can be longer, and depends on the needs of the firm and the student's availability. 

In addition to law firm internships, the Paris Program offers Directed Internships under the supervision of the program director. During these internships, students conduct research on Paris institutions or some aspect of French or European law. This type of internship is available to each student who registers in the program. Contact the Program Director, Professor Vernon Palmer for more information.

We are looking for interns to work in Rome, Cambodia or New York City for a minimum of four weeks (six weeks is the preferable length). Due to the project's large scope, there is much room to accommodate the students' individual qualifications and interests. Contact the Program Director, Professor Herbert Larson for more information.
