ASIL Internships

In light of the ongoing uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Society is hosting all internships virtually. We welcome internship applications from any qualified individuals able to participate remotely during normal working hours (Eastern Time).

Start Your Career with an ASIL Internship. ASIL offers students opportunities to become involved with its work while learning first-hand about the field of international law. See descriptions below of the specific internship positions available with the Society and how to apply. All positions are based at ASIL's Washington, DC, headquarters and generally require a minimum commitment of 15 hours per week during the fall and spring semesters and usually more during the summer. All internships are unpaid; however, interns may be eligible to earn academic credit through their school. During their internship, participants are encouraged both to attend ASIL events and to take advantage of the plethora of programs in international law and foreign relations that the DC area provides.
