Law & Climate Research Internship available at Hughes Hall, Cambridge

We have an exciting opportunity to be part of a new research project looking at the climate action opportunities within current laws and regulations. This Law & Climate Research Internship opportunity is based at the Centre for Climate Engagement, Hughes Hall.

The Centre for Climate Engagement at Hughes Hall is establishing a summer Law & Climate Research Internship programme, which is open to undergraduate and postgraduate law students (up to one-year post-completion of undergraduate degree), currently studying at the University of Cambridge. The programme is being run in collaboration with the Faculty of Law and will include up to five internship positions, with a focus on conducting desk research in law and climate change.

We are currently recruiting for applications to these positions. The internships will run for the equivalent of two full-time weeks (75 hours), which can be completed over two months (July and August). The interns will be based at Hughes Hall but can work remotely.

Internship purpose 

The core obligation of the intern positions will be to help research and write sections of a new online resource under development that maps how climate change intersects with a wide range of areas of law. This will involve conducting legal research focussed on specific areas of law and climate change and writing concise, academically rigorous summaries of different areas of law.
