About the Internship Program

​Interns work the Law Reform Commission and Sentencing Council Secretariat for 20 days either full-time or part-time (at least two days per week) starting in June to September. The internship is a casual paid position.

An internship at the Secretariat provides an opportunity to work closely with Law Reform Commissioners, Sentencing Council members and Secretariat staff and contribute directly to developing proposals for law reform. Depending on the project this could mean undertaking research, contributing to drafting consultation documents, assisting with consultation processes, or helping draft reports. The Commission and Council acknowledge the contribution of interns in their published papers.

The Secretariat seeks to provide a stimulating environment and a varied experience for interns.

Information about the Law Reform Commission's work is available in Current projects.​ Information about the Sentencing Council's work is available in Current projects.

Some conditions

Applicants should note that the Secretariat cannot offer practical work experience required for professional admission as a solicitor or barrister, such as is required by students at the College of Law. We cannot provide the appropriate supervision.
