Research Intern, O'Neill Institute - Georgetown University Law Center
The O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University 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 national and international health concerns. Housed at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington D.C., the O'Neill Institute reflects the importance of public and private law in health policy analysis. The O'Neill Institute draws upon the University's considerable intellectual resources, including the School of Nursing & Health Studies, School of Medicine, the McCourt School of Public Policy, and the Kennedy Institute of Ethics.
The Research Intern will work with O'Neill Institute faculty, project directors, law fellows, and peer student research assistants on academic legal research related to global health law projects.
The intent of the intern program is to develop the intern's analytical research skills in addition to legal writing skills necessary for a career in global health law.
