Update April 2021

Internships with The Guernica Group 2021-2022


Due to the current uncertainty as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and restrictions imposed, we previously extended the suspension of the Internship Programme until Spring 2021.  Regrettably, many of the restrictions remain in place with international travel and in-person meetings severely limited. We have therefore introduced a remote programme that allows interns to spend time with our legal teams in London, San Francisco and Madrid during 2021. 


Intern positions will be available during the second half of 2021 for undergraduate law students, postgraduate law students, and newly qualified lawyers at our Offices in London, San Francisco and Madrid.

If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us for more details here.

Selected interns will assist The Guernica Group in developing research and case papers on a range of legal topics of both local and international relevance. Interns will have an opportunity to become involved in the work of the following aspects of the Association:

·       Supporting the work of the Group;

·       Supporting the Group's Legal Policy & Research Unit;

·       Supporting the Group's cases before national and international tribunals.


Interns will be able to draft policy papers on substantive legal issues as well as assisting in preparing background research for grant proposals. Interns will also be able to assist in implementing technical assistance programmes in developing countries.


To participate in our internship programmes, candidates are required send a single page cover letter with an accompanying CV (maximum of two pages).


The Guernica Group runs two bi-annual programmes starting in September/ October 2021 and March/ April 2022. Upon receipt of the documentation, we will provide information about the positions available, based on the workload of the projects being undertaken.

For the 2021 internship programme applications should be received no later than 30 June 2021 and for the 2022 internship programme no later than 30 November 2021.

Please note that The Guernica Group internship programme is run independently of the Academy Internship Programme.

Applications should be sent via e-mail to Nenad Vucijak here.
