Intern for International Bridges to Justice (IBJ), Cambodia

Background
I will be working for International Bridges to Justice (IBJ) in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.  IBJ aims to protect defendant rights by emphasizing the right of defendants to competent legal representation, the right to be protected from cruel and unusual punishment, and the right to a fair trial.  Interns travel to the provinces, visit prisons and courthouses, watch trials, and report back to the Geneva headquarters on conditions in those areas.  Interns are also assigned one large-scale legal research project to work on throughout the summer.
