  • Review evidence in ongoing investigations.
  • Assist attorneys in investigative testimony and depositions.
  • Aid with discovery.
  • Draft court pleadings and papers.

Criminal Law interns will develop the depth and breadth of their legal knowledge and skills, to become familiar with applying them in a wide range of real situations. Tasks you may be responsible for are:

  • General office duties.
  • Drafting documents.
  • Liaising with clients, courts and prosecutors.

ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS FOR INTERNS IN WELLINGTON:

When arranging your Internship, we will also liaise with you regarding whether or not you'd like to use our existing accommodation or arrange your own. The choice is yours.

Internships with Accommodation included:
Most interns stay in shared apartments. You'll have your own bedroom and either your own bathroom or a shared bathroom with a small number of people (2-4). You'll also have shared kitchen facilities.

There is also a shared communal area, such as a TV or Pool room. Internet is always available.

Accommodations are centrally located and near public transport.

Internships without Accommodation, i.e. you arrange your own accommodation:
Accommodation forms a major cost of the placements in New Zealand and the accommodation provided above is very, very good. However, you can choose to arrange your own accommodation in order to keep your costs down.

Our investigation has shown hostel accommodation (sharing dormitory rooms) to range from approximately £10 to £16 per night ($13 to $21). Thus a mid-range hostel for a 6-week placement would cost approximately $840 for your accommodation for that period, but would be a total saving of $1,125 over the “With Accommodation” option over the 6-week period. Please note, however, that these costs were correct at time of writing and can increase or fluctuate owing to Exchange Rates fluctuations.

FOOD:
Food is not provided in this programme, but your accommodation will have cooking facilities.
