The CBA has received funding from Global Affairs Canada to select and place 32 young Canadian lawyers in 2018-19 as interns with human rights and legal development organizations overseas.
Preparation for overseas placements begins in summer 2018, including a short briefing in July and basic logistical and substantive preparations. The six-month placements are undertaken from September 2018-March 2019.
The YLIP contributes a modest living and accommodation allowance, assists in covering health insurance, and covers travel costs related to briefing/debriefing sessions in Canada and to overseas placements. The due date for submission of applications is May 4, 2018.
For further information about the program, please see the CBA YLIP opportunities web page at and its Facebook page.
Please carefully note eligibility guidelines and details on how to apply.
