Law & Human Rights Short-term Specials
On a Projects Abroad Law & Human Rights Short-term Special project, you have the opportunity to volunteer at law firms and NGOs around the world to experience how they practise law and raise awareness about human rights. These projects are specifically designed for volunteers aged 16 to 19.
Law volunteers work in law firms and legal departments. Over the course of the programme, you will gain a broad overview of law and be able to do a variety of tasks, such as researching case studies, proofreading documents and making comparisons between international legal systems.
As a Human Rights volunteer, you work directly with organisations committed to fighting against human rights abuse and supporting victims. You could also work alongside disadvantaged communities affected by poverty, crime and other social problems and support them in a variety of ways.
