United Nations internship for Law student

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

Moroney recently received a formal offer for a three month internship with United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) commencing mid October in Turin, Italy. 

Whilst there she will be assisting the Public Information officer with a range of activities including researching areas relevant to communications topics, drafting new project proposals and assisting with material relevant to crime prevention and justice. This includes writing speeches, reports and brochures and organising press conferences and events. 

Moroney identified this amazing opportunity for herself with the assistance of staff at La Trobe University’s 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,’ says Moroney,

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

Cat Moroney is the fourth LTU 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.
