Young Lawyers International Program

VALUABLE WORK AND LIFE EXPERIENCE

Since 2002, the Young Lawyers International Program (YLIP) has placed more than 100 of Canada’s brightest young lawyers in internships with overseas legal organizations working in human rights and access to justice. YLIP interns have made important contributions to the development of human rights, constitutional reform and the rule of law in developing countries across Asia, Africa and the Caribbean.

Past interns have used their international experience to embark on exciting careers both in Canada and internationally in government, private practice, civil society, international organizations, academia and beyond.
