Penn State Law’s International Justice Externship

Penn State Law’s International Justice Externship
Penn State Law’s International Justice Externship gives law students an international experience and an opportunity to gain professional experience in law within a global arena. Law students interested in international criminal law are encouraged to apply.

The externship is offered in the Fall and Spring for law students at Penn State. Students accepted into the program will work directly with experienced prosecutors at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and the Special Court for Sierra Leone, both located in The Hague, Netherlands.

 Students will gain experience in international law by participating in high-profile international criminal cases. The externship is led by Professor Dermot Groome. As a senior trial attorney, Professor Groome has prepared prosecution cases against high ranking Serbian leaders on war crimes committed in Croatia and Bosnia, and against other government leaders.

Before applying, students must have completed the required core legal competence courses to make them eligible for the externship program. They are also encouraged to take Professional Responsibility in their second year of law school and a prerequisite course in international law or human rights.

The location is usually in NETHERLANDS.
