For Students

CIPPIC offers students the opportunity to work on live projects and cases for academic credit (academic internships/directed research), for pay (summer internships + research assistantships), and as volunteers.

Academic Internships and Directed Research Projects

Upper year and graduate students can intern at CIPPIC in any of the three academic terms for credit (3 credits/term). Preference is given to students who commit to two terms (6 credits) of clinic work. Interns attend training sessions and tutorials, participate in case rounds, and work closely with CIPPIC lawyers on client files and advocacy projects. Total hourly commitment for 3 credits is 120 hours. See the uOttawa course calendar under CML3316 for applicable deadlines and other details. CIPPIC staff lawyers may also supervise directed research projects (1-3 credits) related to CIPPIC work.
