Borrin-NPM Legal Internship Awards Open
Calling all Māori 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 2018-2019.
These successful Māori interns will have the opportunity to work on Māori law related 10 week research projects. They will be supervised by a Māori law academic and where possible a Māori lawyer.
Each internship is valued at $5,500 with an additional $1000 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 NPM summer internship cohort programme.
The 2017-2018 inaugural recipients of the Borrin-Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Legal Research Internship Awards produced outstanding research. Link to their reports below.
