United Nations internship for Law studentIn a huge coup for the La Trobe University School of Law, law student Cat Moroney has been offered a prestigious internship with the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) based in Turin, Italy.

The three month internship with UNICRI commenced this month. While there, Cat will be assisting the Public Information Officer with a range of activities including:

  • researching areas relevant to communication topics;
  • drafting new project proposals; and 
  • assisting with material relevant to crime prevention and justice.

These activities will include writing speeches, reports, brochures and organising press conferences and events. 

Cat identified this amazing opportunity with the assistance of staff at the La Trobe University School of Law. 

‘I started researching the UN and the UNICRI, read a few of their published papers and so on, the more I read the more interested I was.

‘I did quite a lot of research for my application regarding the work they do and the UN as a whole, I am very excited to take on this opportunity,’ says Cat. 

Cat Moroney is the fourth La Trobe University law student to be offered an internship with the UN in recent years and only one of a handful that undertake internships internationally each year.
