J-1 Research Intern, O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law - Georgetown University Law Center

The O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law was established in 2007 through the generous philanthropy of Linda and Timothy O'Neill to respond to the need for innovative solutions to the most pressing global health concerns. In bringing together experts from both the public health and legal fields, the O'Neill Institute reflects the importance of public and private law in health policy analysis.

In an intern program intended to develop the analytical research skills - and legal writing skills - necessary for a career in global health law, the J-1 Intern works with O'Neill Institute faculty, project directors, law fellows, and peer student research assistants on academic legal research related to global health law projects.

Daily supervision is provided by assigned supervisor/ Associate, an early career global health attorney who manages day-to-day activities and schedules for projects and scholarship development, and who can share their experience and provide guidance about the skills necessary for a career in that field.

Weekly meetings and check-ins occur with the Core Supervisor and the O'Neill Institute Executive Director.

  • Global health law library research and training
  • Research tasks for global health and human rights case law research
  • Research tasks for non-communicable diseases policies and regulations
  • Analysis of research

If desired, there are additional tasks to draft and prepare academic scholarship with associates, fellows, and project directors.

  • Academic and working knowledge of research topics related to health law
