The International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT) is an independent intergovernmental Organisation with its seat in the Villa Aldobrandini in Rome. Its purpose is to study needs and methods for modernising, harmonising and co-ordinating private and in particular commercial law as between States and groups of States and to formulate uniform law instruments, principles and rules to achieve those objectives.
UNIDROIT is currently accepting applications for the Institute’s 2020 Scholarship and Internship Programme.
A number of research scholarships (1000€ per month) will be granted to outstanding post-graduate (doctoral) law students, lawyers, academics and government officials to undertake two months of research in the UNIDROIT library (exceptionally, scholarships can also be granted for three months).
UNIDROIT will also offer internship opportunities in 2020 for exceptional later year undergraduate and postgraduate law students to work with the UNIDROIT Secretariat for a period of three months on high-priority topics on the UNIDROIT Work Programme. While majority of the internship positions are unpaid, a limited number of stipends (600€ per month) may be available for the top candidates, with preference given to applicants from developing countries.
