    I really want work experience in a law firm.. but not the usual such as a solicitor. I want to work for the United Nations or a something that deals with human rights. Anyone has any ideas for what I could do? I'm 18 years old but i realise to work/volunteer at UN you must be of 25 years old.
    I'd like something where I can travel to different cities/towns and maybe do public speaking about issues that are important to me.
    Thanks!

    thanks for your reply, but i really can't travel to different countries as of yet because I'm still in school. But if there's any, where I'd be able to travel to different places in England that would be great.

    You could also try applying to volunteer/intern at Redress.

    Human Rights At Sea has internships.

    Fair Trials isn't currently recruiting but depending on when you want to get work experience, there may be a position available. https://www.fairtrials.org/about-us/...-work-with-us/

    There's a few but if you're unsuccessful/don't find something you like, I would suggest looking up ALL human rights organisations/law firms.
