Transnational Legal Initiative Internship Deadline is January 31st!

The Transnational Legal Initiative will fund summer internships at two Latin American non-governmental organizations working on issues of sexual orientation and gender identity: Colombia Diversa and Fundación Iguales. TLI will provide students with stipends of up to $4,500 to cover transportation, housing, and living expenses. Students will spend up to 6 weeks in Bogotá or Santiago working on strategies to advance LGBTI rights both at the domestic and international level.

Applicants must agree to work full-time at one of the two organizations for at least 4 weeks. Upon return, the student must submit a three- to five-page report on the experience. To apply, students must submit the following materials:

1) Resume
2) Statement of interest detailing the relevance of the internship to past experience and professional goals
3) One letter of recommendation from a faculty member
4) Current transcript

Applications must be submitted to by January 31, 2017. Please be sure to use “TLI Summer Internship” in the subject line of your email. All Rutgers Law students are eligible. A committee comprised of Professors Carlos Ball, Jorge Contesse, Stuart Deutsch, and Suzanne Kim will elect the TLI summer interns. If you have any questions, please contact Professor Jorge Contesse at
