International Participation and Community Engagement - LAWS452

This unit involves participation in an international internship as part of Macquarie University PACE International program.

On either a four or eight week program during session breaks and vacations periods, students will travel overseas to participate in internships. Interns will work within a range of law firms; and NGOs that provide legal advice and education, and contribute to public debate about legal standards, policies and reform.

Students may also participate in a semester long on-campus PACE International placement working in teams here at Macquarie on needs-based projects for NGOs based in Cambodia, India, Malaysia and the Philippines

Whether engaging in an overseas placement, or an on-campus opportunity, interns will be matched to partner organisations during the recruitment process based on their skills and interests, and the partner project requirements.

Students also have the opportunity to source their own overseas placements and nominate them for LAWS452 approval. Students wishing to nominate a placement to be considered for credit towards LAWS452 should contact the convenor by email at least 8 weeks prior to the proposed placement.

All Law PACE International opportunities are advertised via email by the unit convenor, and on the PACE International website. Entry to this unit is by on-line application via the PACE International website.
