About the ICJ's Judicial Assistants Program

Along with New York University, Columbia, Yale, Michigan, Geneva and Strasbourg, McGill has participated in the Judicial Assistants Program of the International Court of Justice since 2005.

Modeled on the U.S. and Canadian Supreme Courts' clerkship programs, the Judicial Assistants Program allows recent law graduates to clerk with one or two judges of the International Court of Justice, helping in the preparation of hearings and the drafting of decisions. This is a rare opportunity for a McGill Law recent graduate to work within one of the world's most important legal institutions.
