OVERSEAS PLACEMENTS AROUND THE GLOBE
The CBA has received funding from Global Affairs Canada to select and place thirty-two (32) young Canadian lawyers in 2018-2019 as interns with human rights and legal development organizations overseas.
Preparation for overseas placements begins in summer 2018, including a short briefing in July and basic logistical and substantive preparations. The six-month placements are undertaken from September 2018 to March 2019.
The YLIP contributes a modest living and accommodation allowance, assists in covering health insurance, and covers travel costs related to briefing/debriefing sessions in Canada and to overseas placements. The due date for submission of applications is June 4th, 2018.
