Title

Global Internship Report 2013

Abstract

This year, Georgia Law’s Global Internship Program (GIP) celebrates its twelfth anniversary of existence. Since its foundation in 2001, the program has grown exponentially, not only in the number of countries opened to our students but also in the diversity and quality of the venues offered for summer internships. The program’s expansion is also reflected in the number of students traveling abroad.

The Dean’s Office underwrote for the seventh consecutive year the student participants’ travel for those who worked abroad on a pro-bono basis. Students received law school support of $1,500 on a cost-reimbursement basis.

Throughout the years, the Global Internship Program has grown in stature, becoming one of the top programs that Georgia Law offers to its student body. It can also boast of being the largest international program in geographic terms offered by the University of Georgia.
