2017 IMF Internship Program (Legal Department) (Job Number: 1601095)
The IMF's Legal Department is also seeking applications for a summer intern position as part of the 2017 Fund Internship Program. The duration of the internship will be 10-12 weeks, which will be undertaken sometime between May and October 2017 (the actual period of the internship will be agreed between the department and the successful candidate).
The selected candidate will work in one of the units of the Legal Department under the supervision and guidance of a senior member of the unit. Projects assigned (which differ from year to year) will be determined at a time closer to the start of the internship to ensure that they are directly aligned with the department's work program and, to the extent possible, with the interests of the intern. Research covers a broad spectrum of legal issues as the examples below from previous years illustrate:
- Analysis of the legal framework for capital controls under the European Economic Area
- Research on the insolvency of non bank financial institutions
- Research on the legal mandate of the IMF in financial regulation
- Cross-country comparisons of effectiveness of AML/CFT efforts.
