The Legal Interns Program (LIP) is open to individuals with a Master degree in law, LLM or equivalent, or current Master degree in law/LLM students who are nationals of the Bank's member countries, and attracts a large number of highly qualified candidates. The goal of this program is to offer to successful candidates an opportunity to gain legal experience, improve their skills as well as the experience of working in an international environment. Interns generally find the experience to be rewarding and interesting.
The World Bank pays an hourly salary to all Interns and, where applicable, provides an allowance towards travel expenses. Interns are responsible for their own living accommodations and health insurance. The positions are located in Washington, DC and can last from six to twelve months depending on the start date.
