We are pleased to announce that the LCIA is now accepting applications for its next internship

The internship programme:
This internship will run from Monday 1 September 2014 to Friday 27 February 2015.  The intern will receive a stipend of £1,600 (gross) per calendar month.

The intern will fill the role of Research Assistant and his or her duties will include assisting with legal and statistical research in connection with the LCIA’s own caseload and more generally in the field of international commercial arbitration, and assisting the casework team, from time to time, with other tasks relating to the administration of LCIA arbitrations.

The LCIA is looking for a graduate with an interest in international arbitration, an excellent academic record, and a good command of English.  Other languages and work experience are not necessary, but would be an advantage.  All applicants must be entitled to work in the UK, on a temporary work permit (which it will be their responsibility to obtain) or otherwise.  The internship is a full-time position.

If you wish to apply, please log in to your YIAG account at http://www.lcia.org/Membership/YIAG/Internship.aspx and then click on ‘Apply’ in the left hand menu below ‘Internship’.

You will be asked to upload a letter of application and a CV.  Applications must be submitted by 12 midnight London time on Friday 18 July 2014.  We are accepting online applications only.  Applications sent by any other means will not be considered.  It is not necessary to include any letters of recommendation with your application.

Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by telephone, and we will notify all applicants of the outcome of their application by the end of August 2014.
