I was wondering what people think about the benefits of undertaking an internship at the ICTY?
I should highlight that I am interested in the benefits of an ICTY internship for a future in criminal law at The Bar? That is, will an ICTY internship further my chances of gaining a pupillage?
I would have thought it would be looked upon favourably. I did an internship at the ICC and many of my interviewers from large commercial law firms were interested in my experiences.
From what I've heard interns at the ICTY can get very good hands on experience in assisting with drafting requests, research etc. I can't imagine it would be seen as a bad use of your time in any circumstances provided you can clearly articulate what skills you learnt from it.
