2010 PON Online Internship Fair
The 6th Annual Program on Negotiation Internship Fair took place from February 25-March 11, 2010. This year, rather than having a fair on campus, we had a “virtual” internship fair with all of the opportunities posted here on our website from February 25th through March 11th, 2010. We hope that this new format will help spread information about our participating organization’s programs and reach many more students, including the over 1000 students that are now a part of our Student Interest Group!
The organizations listed engage in a full range of dispute resolution activities and require the services of experienced and specialized student interns. The purpose of the listing is to help students looking for internship opportunities or short work assignments identify possible positions in the Boston Area and beyond. The mission and activities of each organization are described, as are the roles and duties an intern might be expected to perform.
Finally, there is information about the conditions of work, including remuneration, reimbursement of expenses, or volunteer status and time commitment required. Students must contact these organizations and negotiate their own work arrangements. Interns may find themselves gaining experience in one or more of these areas: general dispute resolution; environmental and public policy; consumer, labor, and community issues; and court-related activities.
Please note that the inclusion of an organization does not guarantee that it will have internship positions available at all times. The information provided about each organization and their opportunities is subject to change without notice.
