The internship is for a non-flexible period of 2 months starting always in odd months.

The coming available periods are:

  • 1 September – 31 October 2014
  • 3 November – 31 December 2014

The intern will be under the supervision of one of the seven case management teams of the Secretariat of the ICC International Court of Arbitration.

Tasks entrusted to intern include:

  • reading, commenting on and drafting documents related to current arbitration cases
  • doing research for the preparation of work documents, conferences, presentations and publications
  • translating legal documents

Required qualifications:
A student with a strong background in international commercial arbitration law and a first experience in arbitration preferred – speaking English fluently.

Eligibility Conditions

The candidate needs to still be registered as a student during the time of the internship. Recent graduates who are not anymore enrolled in an educational program are therefore not eligible to intern at ICC. He/she (if national from outside the European Union or Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Andorra, Monaco, or Switzerland) should get an appropriate visa from a French consulate.

Important Information

Internships in Paris are unremunerated and interns are required to handle and pay for their own travel and accommodation arrangements for the duration of their stay. Unfortunately scholarship cannot be granted by the ICC.

Internship is full-time (however a few hours’ classes during the week are accepted). The average working week is 35 hours.
