Want to make a difference in Israeli society and the lives of the women at Bat Melech?
Bat Melech’s internship program allows American law students to work hands-on in Israeli family law, while learning about Israel’s civil and rabbinical court systems and helping victims of domestic violence.
Interns at Bat Melech are involved in all aspects of the Center’s legal work, thus allowing them to help abuse victims while learning the ins and outs of the Israeli legal system. The interns’ responsibilities will include, but are not limited to: interviewing clients who have reached out to the Center’s toll-free hotline, participating in attorney/client meetings, help to prepare prosecution drafts, assisting in the collection and preparation of material for cases, help to prepare plea drafts for civil and rabbinical court sittings, and accompanying attorneys to court.
Working knowledge of Hebrew is required. Each intern’s caseload will depend on his/her proficiency in Hebrew, experience with victims of domestic violence, and legal background/skills.
