Leo Cussen Centre for law trains people with a law degree to become practising lawyers. Our training is about putting you in a simulated environment so that you experience what it’s really like to solve human rights issues in legal practice. Leo Cussen Human Rights Law Virtual Internship Opportunity focuses on legal communication skills, advising on an employment dismissal, a discrimination issue, and a deportation matter. The 3 modules have been designed so that they increase in the level of difficulty and so that your skills will build as you work through them. We, therefore, recommend that you work through the modules in sequential order. (Watch: Alternate Careers after Law)
