UN calling

UN calling

By Anna Jennings-Edquist

Anna Jennings-Edquist recounts her internship with the United Nations, including some tips on the application process. If you like the sound of working in unique legal environments during the day, socialising with friendly colleagues at night, and travelling within or between countries at the weekend, then you might want to consider applying for a job or internship, or study overseas. In 2012, I took a leave of absence from my role as a solicitor at Slater and Gordon in order to undertake a position at the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague in Holland. I chose to apply for an internship at the ICTY because work at the Tribunal was worthy and compelling, and because Holland would be an interesting country to live, and a good base to explore other parts of Europe. I would recommend the experience to anyone. Not only did my proficiency as a lawyer increase exponentially, but I was also lucky enough to meet a group of fellow interns I remain close friends with today.
