South Asia-based Law Fellows will primarily support Accountability Counsel’s collaboration with our clients based in South Asia in filing complaints and the development of resource materials for communities and advocates. South Asia law fellows will work with the South Asia Director and be responsible for legal research assignments and fact memos. They may also participate in meetings with community members, international institutions, and NGO colleagues as opportunities arise.

Applicants are requested to have relevant work experience and/or an academic background in at least some of the areas in which we work: international law; development and economics; public policy; and environmental and human rights. Applicants are required to have excellent communication, research, writing, and critical thinking skills.

Positions are unpaid, but we will be happy to work with your institution to arrange academic credit

We accept applications from current law and graduate students and recent graduates (within one year of graduation). Please note that law student applicants are expected to have finished at least their 1L year and graduate students are expected to have finished at least one year of study in a related field.
