The LCIA Secretariat offers, twice per year, one six-month internship at its offices in London.
The next internship will run from Monday 2 March 2015 to Friday 28 August 2015. The intern will receive a stipend, currently of £1,600 (gross) per calendar month.
The intern will fill the role of Research Assistant and his or her duties will include assisting with legal and statistical research in connection with the LCIA’s own caseload and more generally in the field of international commercial arbitration, and assisting the casework team, from time to time, with other tasks relating to the administration of LCIA arbitrations.
The LCIA is looking for a graduate with an interest in international arbitration, an excellent academic record, and a good command of English. Other languages and work experience are not necessary, but would be an advantage. All applicants must be entitled to work in the UK, on a temporary work permit (which it will be their responsibility to obtain) or otherwise. The internship is a full-time position.
