Goldsmiths student amongst two University of London students to secure paid internship with the Refugee Law Clinic and McLemore Konschnik LLP

We are delighted to announce that our Year 3 student graduating this summer, Esther Cudjoe Pontara, has been one of only two students at the University of London to secure a summer internship with the Refugee Law Clinic.

The Refugee Law Clinic is very happy to be able to again offer two paid internships for student volunteers over the summer period, supported by McLemore Konschnik LLP.

Our Esther Cudjoe Pontara has secured the placement alongside Sindhu Ratnarajan (UCL), who will each work more intensively with the clinic over the summer period. This will allow the interns to continue to develop their legal and practical skills in asylum and refugee law (through drafting, legal analysis, research and direct client work), and provides important support to existing clinic cases over the summer months.

The Clinic is open to all students studying in Law Schools at the University of London including UCL, LSE, King’s, QMU, City and others. Our Department is very proud to have been a founding partner of the Clinic. Each year, all partnering Law Schools send 5 students to the Clinic. Esther was one of our students representing Goldsmiths at the Clinic this year, and we are thrilled with her success with the summer internship.

Goldsmiths places gaining professional skills and career progression at the heart of its Law programmes, including through an array of Law & Policy Clinic initiatives that it makes available for its students.
