The IUCN Environmental Law Centre (ELC) is a Centre that attracts interns and fellows from around the world.
Our fellows and interns enjoy the rewarding experience of working in an international office, based in a city that has demonstrated a strong commitment to the environment and to attracting international organizations and events. They also have the opportunity to interact with ELC staff - and the many international experts who visit the Centre - and have access to the ELC library resources, which include two of the world's most extensive libraries on environmental law and policy.
The IUCN ELC has been closely collaborating with a number of organisations to fund research fellows to come to the ELC in order to enable legal specialists from developing countries to access and conduct research on environmental law and policy.This has included working very closely with the Carl Duisberg Society and the Humboldt Foundation and the ELC is most appreciative of their ongoing recognition and support.
Interns with high interest in environmental law are welcome to apply to spend some time at the ELC. Successful applicants will spend time supporting the work of our legal professionals and will gain the opportunity to participate in an exciting array of projects, conferences and workshops.
While we are not able to offer remuneration for fellows or interns, they are provided with their own working space including computer with email/Internet access, essential Windows applications and full access to our substantial library collection.
