The Program Department (Older People’s Rights) of Human Rights Watch (HRW) is seeking an enthusiastic and qualified current law student, LL.M. student, or graduate student in a relevant field to intern in the New York office for the spring 2019 semester. Ideally, the intern will be available for at least 25 hours for a minimum of 10 weeks beginning in February 2019 (dates and hours are flexible).

Students should check with their individual academic institutions for requirements.


The internship will primarily focus on:

    Conducting legal and social science desk research on a range of issues related to older people’s human rights, particularly in the context of institutionalization;
    Drafting advocacy documents such as letters, op-eds, and submissions to the United Nations; and
    Engaging in other research and advocacy efforts as the opportunity arises.
