Org. Setting and Reporting
A Mechanism internship is unpaid and full-time. Core working hours for interns are Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. Interns work under the supervision of a staff member in the office to which they are assigned. The duration of a MICT internship can range from a minimum of three months to a maximum of six months, according to the needs of the intern’s assigned office.


  • The President is the institutional head of the Mechanism and fulfils functions both in Arusha and The Hague. The President is responsible for the overall execution of the institution’s mandate, represents the Mechanism before the Security Council and the UN General Assembly, presides over the Chambers, and is responsible for appointing judges to hear cases as required. The President of the Mechanism is a member of the Appeals Chamber and presides over its proceedings.
  • In the President’s Office, interns provide legal support with respect to a wide range of mandated residual functions, including by conducting independent legal research, analyzing laws and policies, drafting and editing orders and decisions, and advising on
    press and policy matters. Interns may also observe hearings and deliberations, attend meetings of the President with interlocutors inside and outside the Mechanism, assist in the preparation of reports to the Security Council and UN General Assembly, and prepare drafts of speeches.


  • Candidates for legal internships in the Office of the President are required to be, at a minimum, in their final year of law school/university. If the candidate has already completed a four-year undergraduate university degree before commencing graduate legal studies, he or she must have completed at least one year of graduate legal studies by the time the internship commences. Applicants must be computer literate in standard software applications.
  • Applicants are not required to have professional work experience for participation in the programme, and must be at least 18 years old. Prior experience in a legal work environment is an asset.
  • English and French are the working languages of the MICT. Fluency in oral and written English and/or French is required. Knowledge of other languages – particularly Kinyarwanda or Swahili – is an asset.
  • Short-listed candidates may be contacted by the hiring team directly if further information is needed during the review of their application. Due to the high volume of applications received, candidates who have not been short-listed will not be contacted.
