Michigan students complete internships in Namibia

Michigan students complete internships in Namibia  By Confidente Reporter  MICHIGAN Law provides  various opportunities for  non-credit international experience,  in internships with NGOs in  Cambodia, with leading refugee law  agencies around the world, and with  the AIRE Centre, a human rights organization  in London.  Every few weeks, a five-year-old  Namibian boy named Jamal sends a  WhatsApp message to Colleen Devine,  Mindy Gorin, Emily Hu, and Kate  Powers—who lived with his family for  10 weeks last summer. The students  were the first to be placed in Namibia  as summer interns through the Law  School’s Program for International  Law and Development—arranged by  clinical assistant Professor Steve Gray  through his connections as a 2008–  2009 Fulbright Scholar here.
