Apprenticeship Programmes at African Court of Justice - Zambians - Sep 2016

Internships are apprenticeship programmes that allow interns to gain practical working experience and develop skills in areas of relevance to their careers under the guidance of a qualified member of staff. Internships must be of mutual benefit both to the interns and to the African Court – empowering the intern and at the same time contributing to enhance the work of the African Court.
To encourage cultural diversity, the Court offers places for internship in the field of human rights to applicants from all over the world. Priority will however be given to the citizens of the Member States of the African Union

Objectives of Internship

The specific objectives of the internship are inter alia:
To offer admitted candidates a working environment which will enable them to enhance their theoretical knowledge through practical work;
To provide the intern with a better understanding of the work of the African Court;
To enable the African Court to benefit from the input of qualified persons whose background will inject a new lease of life, an up-to-date academic knowledge, and thus enhance the activities of the African Court.


In order to be eligible for internship at the African Court, applicants should:
Be registered in, or have graduated from a recognized academic institution;
Provide a letter from the University or academic institution in which the student candidate is registered, for those still in school. This should include a brief description of the project or subject the student is working on;
Complete the African Court Internship Application Form which can be downloaded from the website of the Court;
Have an excellent command of at least one of the AU working languages (English, French, Arabic or Portuguese).  Knowledge of any of the other three will be an added advantage;
Be computer literate;
Be able to work in a diverse multilingual and multicultural environment.
