Project Description

The Department of State’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking Persons (TIP Office) is focused on fighting the crime of human trafficking and leads the State Department’s efforts to prosecute traffickers, protect victims and prevent human trafficking.
The TIP Office seeks an e-intern to help publish legal scholarship on human trafficking. The e-intern will help brainstorm a novel, yet pertinent topic for the article, which could be based around legislative provision, case, or specific issue on human trafficking. The e-intern will conduct research as well as a thorough preemptive check and read widely on the topic. Once a thesis is developed, the e-intern will begin the process of drafting an article to frame an argument and provide analysis and views on the topic chosen. The article will be submitted for publication with a law review to generate scholarly conversation in the field of human trafficking law.
