Calling Legal Scholars and Students - Opportunity for two Māori law research summer interns

Once again, Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga is proud to partner with the Borrin Foundation, with the support of Te Hunga Roia Māori o Aotearoa, to offer two Māori law research interns for the summer months of 2020-2021.

The successful Māori law interns will have the opportunity to work on Māori law related 10 week research projects who will be supervised by a Māori law academic and where possible a Māori lawyer. 

Each internship is valued at $6,000 with an additional $500 for research related costs (for example to enable meeting with the Māori lawyer mentor if this person resides in a different city, or working with a community relevant to the research project).

The two successful internships will join the Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga summer internship cohort programme.  The internship is administered by Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga.

Māori law academics based at a NPM partner institution are encouraged to apply now for this opportunity.
