Summer Internship at Documentation Center of Cambodia


Documentation Center of Cambodia

Phnom Penh, Cambodia


Students outside Cambodian Temple

Since 2003, the School of Law has a dedicated space for an SU law student to intern at the Documentation Center of Cambodia (DC-Cam). Created in 1995 by a group of Yale University scholars, DC-Cam is an independent Cambodian NGO dedicated to ensuring memory and justice in Cambodia with respect to the abuses of the infamous Democratic Kampuchea (DK) regime. The Center documents the history of the Democratic Kampuchea and promotes accountability and the rule of law, holding the world's largest body of information and potential evidence against former DK officials.

This internship comes with a stipend.  Law students with an avid interest in international criminal law, human rights law, and Southeast Asian studies are invited to apply.  Students with editorial or heritage law experience are especially encouraged to apply. Please read the brochure with detailed internship job description before submitting your application.

To apply, submit your resume, unofficial transcript, a one-page statement of interest, and three references to Professor Ron Slye.  Application deadline for summer 2015 will be announced in January. The selection committee will schedule an interview with the finalists soon after the application deadline.
