Help provide legal services to underprivileged and poor people who cant afford lawyers in Africa. You will work hand in hand with our local lawyer to protect human rights This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Seul voyageur
Couples
Groupes
50+
This project aims to make legal services available to poor people who cant afford the services of a lawyer to help them get justice. You will be working hand in hand with a team of local legal aid lawyers to seek fair legal representation for underprivileged and marginalize people in Ghana.

This placement is best for interns with a strong interest in affecting change for the better while keeping in mind the long-term aim of the projects. You can expect to operate in urban and rural locations, meet people at all levels of society, and engage with international and domestic authorities and organizations to find legal solutions for poor people who cant afford legal representation in court and mediation. It is important to demonstrate cultural understanding and flexibility. Our mandate is to empower individuals and communities as well as nurture a supportive framework for human rights rather than impose western ideals on Ghanaian society.This internship opportunity will provide all legal and soliciting training relating to criminal and civil law adjudication in Ghana and Africa more broadly. Most of the law firms within which interns are placed have more than 30 years’ experience and expertise, and their lawyers are well known and reputable among the country on all aspects of the law. Their attorneys cater for problems notwithstanding any geographical location. This program provides an opportunity for students considering law school to work within a law firm, to observe what lawyers actually do in their daily activities, and to perform a variety of tasks that will help them determine if they have the desire, capabilities, and temperament that it takes to be a lawyer.

Our Criminal and Civil Law Volunteer/Internship Program in Ghana is one of the most highly recognized legal internship opportunities in Africa. It has been described as one of the finest pre-law experiences available and has been consistently ranked as one of the most hands-on internship programs. The interns are assigned to either one or two attorneys in the trial division for whom they are to complete all investigative aspects of the assigned cases. This project is open both people with legal background and people hoping the study law in the future and wants to have a first hand experience.
