Shurat HaDin's Internship Programs
Real World Experience and Professional Development
Shurat HaDin's internship programs provide law students with a unique opportunity to play a role in the fight against terrorist organizations and states or institutions sponsoring terror. Students will work in a dynamic environment with volunteer lawyers from around the world. Our program is not found at other institutions or non-government organizations and the acquired experience is invaluable, providing you with an edge when competing for a post-graduation job.
The Arnold Silverman Internship Program/Summer (ASIP/Summer) and the winter internship program bring top law school students to serve as interns at Shurat HaDin's Tel Aviv office. You will be making a difference by working on actual law cases that assist innocent civilians injured in terrorist attacks along with other issues relevant to Israeli and Jewish security.
Our program is the perfect way for you to expand your legal horizons, all while developing your career and strengthening your resume with an overseas experience.
You will conduct hands-on research and writing involving the litigation activities of Shurat HaDin, evaluating topics such as anti-boycott activities, tort laws, free speech issues, sovereign immunity, evidentiary matters, anti-terror laws, legislative history on different laws, and a variety of other fields. You will research potential or on-going cases, as well as draft memos and summaries of your work.
Benefits of our internship programs:
- Receive professional work experience and bolster your resume
- Lay the groundwork for future networking and meet new professionals
- Bond with the Jewish state and other Jewish people
