PHRGE offers a number of internships each quarter relating to our program and project areas. These research internships are open to JD and LLM students at NUSL as well as undergraduate students and college-bound, recent high-school graduates.  While the subject matter varies depending upon PHRGE’s research needs, these internships provide students with the opportunity to explore a particular legal or policy issue through a human rights lens. Past research internships have explored: Boston’s proposed charter school expansion and the right to education; the implications of California’s recently passed “human right to water bill;” and human rights-based organizing as a strategy for improving public health. 

PHRGE also offers a wonderful opportunity for undergraduate students interested in human rights at Northeastern University through the co-op students. Undergraduate students work as PHRGE Program Coordinator. They will primarily assist with either the planning of the ESCR Institute or the Annual Report, but will work on other smaller PHRGE projects and events during there time here. For winter through spring, our co-op student is Anthony Phillips.
