Article 11 of the 1992 Ghana Constitution states that the laws of Ghana shall comprise: The Constitution Enactments made by or under the authority of the Parliament established by the Constitution [or legislation];

Any Orders, Rules and Regulations made by any person or authority under a power conferred by this Constitution [or subsidiary or subordinate legislation]; The existing law or the written and unwritten laws of Ghana that existed immediately before the coming into force of the 1992 Constitution]; and The common law [or the English common law, English doctrines of equity, and the rules of customary law]

law-header

The criminal law volunteer intern program is designed to provide undergraduate, graduate, and law students with the fundamental investigative techniques and relevant criminal law knowledge needed for interested volunteer interns. The Criminal Law Internship in Ghana is one of the hands-on legal internship opportunities in Africa.

 

If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind learning experience that can both prepare you for graduate level work and provide you with the experience necessary for employment in any field, then apply to become a volunteer intern in this Criminal Law Internship and gain priceless experience. Attorneys work closely with their volunteer intern Investigators on a regular basis. Although volunteer investigators will be given some clerical duties, the vast majority of their work will be carried out in the community. Obviously, this is not a desk job. Nor is it a simple opportunity to observe an attorney at work, volunteer Investigator will be an important member of a defense team, headed by the Staff Attorney to whom he or she is assigned. 

 

Through their investigative efforts, Intern Investigators assist the attorneys in assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the charges brought against clients. They enable clients to make informed decisions about plea offers. Moreover, in the case of trial, the information and witnesses the volunteer investigators uncover provide the building blocks necessary to support the defense theory. The first week of the Criminal Law Internship Program is dedicated to an intensive training session that covers a wide variety of topics related to investigation procedures and the introduction to criminal law of Ghana, Africa.

 

Duties and Qualifications;
The responsibilities of an Intern Investigator include locating and interviewing witnesses and clients, taking detailed witness statements, performing extensive criminal background checks, serving subpoenas, photographing and diagramming crime scenes, preparing courtroom exhibits, writing reports regarding investigative activities, assisting with case development.

Human Rights Placement

human right

Human Rights In Africa, many nations have at least recognized basic human rights for all citizens, though in practice these are not always recognized. Extensive human rights abuses still occur in several parts of Africa, often under the oversight of the state. The situation of human rights in Africa and for that matter Ghana is generally reported to be poor, and it is seen as an area of grave concern according to the UN, and non-governmental observers.

 

The two recognized human rights organizations where we place volunteers/interns are The Human Rights Advocacy Center (HRAC) and Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI). These are independent Human Rights Organizations that seek to provide monitoring and rights of all persons. 

 

The  Human Rights Advocacy Center (HRAC) organization's office is based in Accra and is dedicated to the promotion and protection of human rights. Through cutting-edge research, education, and advocacy, the organization saves lives, fights injustice, restores peace, and builds the human rights movement around the world. Their areas of activities include; Rule of Law, Access to Justice, Respect of the Constitution, Police Accountability, Children's Rights, Women's Rights and Right to Information. The organization deals with issues of reproductive rights (harmful traditional practices such as female circumcision), issues of rape, child trafficking, assault, unlawful detention and eviction Etc. 

 

The Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI) is an international and independent body that seeks to provide monitoring and rights to citizens of Africa. The organization's office for Africa is based in Ghana, Accra and is also dedicated to the cause above. Their other areas of activities include; Rule of Law, Access to Justice, Respect of the Constitution, Police Accountability, Children's Rights, Women's Rights and Right to Information. 

 

They carry out work by means of investigation, research, training, publications and capacity building. They collaborate with governments, inter-governmental organizations, academia, students and civil society. They aim to apply human rights to social change initiatives, advancement and improvement of human rights. The courts in Ghana however, ensure a culture of respect for the rights and obligations of all people in Ghana, dispensing and promoting justice in a free, informal, formal and relatively expeditious manner, ensuring fairness, efficiency, transparency and application of best practices.  

 

Duties and Qualifications;
The duties include but not limited to the following, Assist attorneys in and out of court, assist attorney staff collecting, reviewing and assembling data for presentation to support cases, receipt of complaints bordering on human rights, monitoring and raising issues of human rights in the news media, research on issues of human rights and rule of law. Etc

 

Volunteer Interns are required to have good oral and written communication skills in English. Strong Interest in law and advocacy. You need to bring a personal laptop for project assignment.


To apply, complete our on line application form and attach your current CV (resume) and personal photo. You would be contacted after your application has been received and reviewed within 24 hours.
