International Internships: Timor-Leste

Four ASU Law students will spend this summer doing legal work in Timor-Leste through the IRLS Program. As one of the world’s newest democracies and a developing country, Timor-Leste will offer these students hands-on opportunities to learn about the challenges and opportunities that an emerging democracy’s legal system faces.

Students will be interning at the Judicial System Monitoring Program, a Timorese non-profit aimed at improving the transparency and accountability of the country’s judicial and legislative systems, and at the office of Timor-Leste’s ombudsperson for human rights.

The IRLS Program is able to fund international legal internships for students thanks to a generous gift from the Jones Day Foundation.
