ICC - International Criminal Court Internship Program

I. Internships Placements
The Court offers internships to highly motivated young professionals with good academic qualifications who are in the early stages of their careers. The Internship is a practical educational experience whereby Interns principally assist the staff of the Court in discharging their duties. Under supervision, Interns are assigned projects and tasks that are relevant to their educational background and interests and provide them with the opportunity to put into practice and further develop their theoretical knowledge. The work will generally be comparable to the work of the upper general service category or junior professional level.

Eligibility Requirements
1. Educational and professional background
Academic qualifications
All candidates must have a degree from or be in the final stages of their studies at a recognised university. Candidates should have a very good record of academic performance.

Applications to legal positions are welcome from graduates specialising in one or more of the following disciplines: national and international criminal law, public international law, international humanitarian law, human rights law, comparative law and criminology, legal expertise
Applications to positions that do not require legal training are welcome from graduates of history, international relations, political science, journalism, translation and interpretation, information technology and communication, logistics, human resources management, social psychology, administrative sciences, forensic science, statistics or economics and are encouraged to apply for places in the divisions and sections of the Office that do not require legal training.
Graduates of other disciplines may be considered

Practical experience
Since the Internship Placements are focused at candidates in the early stages of their professional careers practical experience is not an essential prerequisite for selection. However practical experience that is relevant to the work of the Court may be considered an asset.

2. Language skills

Unless specific language skills are stated as a requirement by the participating sections of the Court, good oral communication and drafting skills in at least one of the working languages of the Court (English and French) are required. A working knowledge of the other working language is desirable.

Knowledge of any of the other official languages of the Court (Arabic, Chinese, Russian and Spanish), or of other languages relevant to the situations pending before the Court will be considered an asset.

3. Other requirements

Applicants for internships should not be older than 35 years at the time of commencing the placement.
Adaptability to a multicultural and multilingual working environment encompassing the principal legal traditions of the world
Ability to work effectively in a team as well as independently
A good standard of computer literacy (especially Microsoft Office applications)
Other important qualities are discretion, reliability, intellectual rigour, precision, perseverance, honesty, creativity, co-operative spirit and integrity.
