Externship and Internship Programs

During the academic year Stanford students may participate in quarter-long externships at U.S. government foreign affairs agencies in Washington or at international and nongovernmental organizations abroad for academic credit under the direction of law school faculty members.  In recent years, Stanford students have participated in full-time externships at such organizations as the State Department’s Office of the Legal Adviser, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, the Special Court of Sierra Leone, and the House Foreign Affairs Committee, among others.

Students have also participated in summer internships with dozens of governmental, intergovernmental, or nongovernmental organizations around the world, such as the World Trade Organization, the Asian Development Bank, the World Bank, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the United Nations Development Programme, the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, the U.S. Department of Justice/Office of International Affairs, the U.S. Agency for International Development, Transparency International, the Asia Foundation, the Legal Assistance Centre in Namibia, the International Crisis Group, the Supreme Court of Israel, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, the International Atomic Energy Agency, and the International Center for Transitional Justice, among others.
