    I have to apply for my second placement and was just wondering what I could do to boost my chances and C.V.

    I've volunteered at an NGO orphanage abroad, and done normal fundrasing in London for different charities. What else?

    Also I'm not really sure where to apply

    I wanted to apply for Amnesty International but it's voluntary and I need a paid placement. I want to work with governmental organisations and not in a solicitors firm as I have already done that. Any ideas?

    paid work at an NGO is pretty hard to find, especially in the legal sector, I think you will struggle to find a paid placement doing this kind of work.

    I could be wrong but I think you will have to alter your expectations. In almost all cases you will not be paid. The reason is simple; there is always another student out there who will jump at the chance and do it for free. Although in a different sector to what you're interested in but the International courts (ICC, ICTY etc.) host interns, none of whom are paid and people actively save so that they can undertake internships....
