The Legal Research Internship Access Scheme has been created to provide internship opportunities in the Law Reform Commission, the Office of the Attorney General or the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for current final year law students who come from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds or have disabilities. The internships will provide successful applicants with paid work experience in a legal environment and the opportunity to develop skills and confidence as part of a research team.

For more information, please read the Information Booklet.

Closing Date: The completed application form must be forwarded by e-mail to internship@lawreform.ie not later than 12noon on Monday, 3 April 2023.

The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions also has a separate internship programme in association with the Law faculties of a number of Irish Universities.  This programme offers a small number of internship positions in our Prosecution Policy & Research Unit.  Applications for entry to this programme are made by students to the Course Director of their respective University Law Faculty.  The selection process is handled by the University.  The programme is confined to those who have completed undergraduate law degrees and have either completed or are undertaking a relevant post graduate degree and/or have commenced study towards a professional legal qualification.
