Togo is among the world’s poorest countries and has received its fair share of criticism over its human rights record. Today, many local and international organizations are working to improve the situation of the poor, repressed, and vulnerable within the country. Since trouble free parliamentary elections took place in October 2007, many people are confident that during the next few years Togo will make further progress in human rights and democratic governance. You can play a part in this progress by interning abroad on a Human Rights Law internship in Togo.
The international work experience you will gain while interning abroad on the Human Rights internship in Togo will undoubtedly improve your resume. This applies whether you are a gap year student looking to study law at university or a law graduate looking to gain some practical work experience abroad in human rights. Your precise role will be determined by your knowledge of law and level of interest in specific areas. International law experience is certainly something that all law firms will be pleased to see when recruiting trainees and new partners.
