Legal internship program

This semester the ALRC has welcomed four interns to the ALRC including Max Dalton (UNSW) and Hannah Ryan from the University of Sydney. Fritz Sirega joins us from Indonesia. Fritz is a recipient of one of AusAID’s Australian Leadership Awards Scholarships. These scholarships are given to emerging leaders from developing countries who show great promise for giving their country a better future. Fritz has most recently worked as a Project Officer for Indonesia’s National Law Reform Program, and is currently undertaking a Doctor of Juridical Science at UNSW. As part of the scholarship, AusAID offers the scholars the opportunity to do a short-term unpaid internship with a reputable Australian organisation, to give them exposure to Australian leadership styles in the workplace and develop their international networks. We are very fortunate that Fritz nominated the ALRC as the place to do his internship. Fritz is working mainly with the Age Barriers team.

Also joining us is Max Bulinski from the University of Michigan in the United States. Max was awarded a Bates Fellowship to enable him to work at the ALRC from August 1st until mid-December. He is working mainly with the Copyright team.

Applications for full-time three week internships in Summer 2013 are now open. The ALRC gives preference to interstate applicants, and those attending institutions outside the Sydney metropolitan region, for the summer program.
