SCIL welcomes new Centre interns.


19 March 2012

On Monday 5 March with the start of Semester 1, SCIL welcomed three new student interns. Samantha Brown, Diana Hu and Nathan Li will volunteer one day per week throughout the semester with the Centre. Interns are regularly involved in a range of Centre activities including researching international law, drafting legal opinions and policy submissions to parliamentary committees and law reform bodies, hosting public seminars and assisting with the production of the Australian International Law Journal. Each semester the Centre offers up to four internships and the programme continues to be very popular; this semester we received 27 excellent applications.

Bryce Williams who interned with SCIL in Semester 2 last shares his experience of interning with SCIL below.

"I am sincerely grateful to have had the opportunity to work alongside leading international lawyers on cutting-edge developments in the law during my time at SCIL. Developing a case note for Garuda v ACCC gave me an insight into foreign state immunity as well as the cut-throat air cargo industry, while my research into international commercial arbitration traversed European, Asian and Middle Eastern jurisdictions (and languages). Working with Ben Boer on international environmental law research was equally stimulating. Thank you to all of the SCIL academics, who were so welcoming and who made the experience such stimulating one."
