Work or volunteer with us
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us and supporting human rights. Regrettably, we are only able to take on a very limited number of volunteers due to capacity. We want to make sure that our volunteers are properly supervised and have interesting, challenging work.
We only take on law student volunteers through established programs with universities and organisations. These programs will be advertised through the relevant organisation.
We do not have the capacity to take on high school work experience placements.
Tips and resources for getting involved
We are sometimes asked for advice about how to get involved in volunteering and human rights law. Some helpful resources and tips are below:
