Are you interested in studying or practising Law?

Through this internship you will work closely with an academic researcher in Law to consider the COVID-19 pandemic from a legal perspective. You’ll work with her to co-author a research article for publication about how human rights, access to health care and public policies operate during challenging times in different parts of the world.

By analysing legal and policy documents produced by governments, courts and international organisations you will understand how the law has a tangible impact on people’s lives, and you’ll gain crucial legal work experience.

This internship is perfect for students thinking about studying law, public policy and international relations, or those wanting to think critically about how the complex decisions of public policy and law are made during challenging times.

I absolutely loved my Oxford Scholastica experience! I definitely recommend it to anyone who either knows what they’re doing and want better preparation, or even students who have no idea who they want to be when they grow up! I was both at some point and Oxford Scholastica filled that gap for me. Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity!
