San Francisco-based Law Fellows will primarily support Accountability Counsel’s collaboration with communities around the world in filing complaints and the development of resource materials for communities and advocates. Law Fellows will work on legal research assignments and fact memos, and may 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 students and recent law graduates (within one year of graduation). Please note that law student applicants are expected to have finished at least their 1L year.
