The Health Law Internship Program

Are you a current law student at the J.D., LL.B., or equivalent level interested in the intersections of health and the law? Each summer, the O’Neill Institute welcomes law students from the United States and around the world to undertake four-week, full-time paid internships. Interns work under leading health law experts, gain valuable expertise and professional skills, and contribute to cutting-edge work. Past interns have worked on areas such as health and human rights, noncommunicable diseases, infectious diseases, and comparative health law and policy, such as responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. During their time at O’Neill Institute, interns may assist in the preparation of legal reports, perform legal research in matters relating to health issues, participate in health law meetings, colloquia and symposiums, and draft blog posts.
