Debwewin Internship

Description
The Debwewin Internship is offered to support the initiative of students interested in providing community education and legal assistance support to First Nations, M├ętis or Inuit (Indigenous) communities and community organizations in Ontario. Students may develop a placement or work with the Ministry of Attorney General to do so. The student may work with the host organization and a local Indigenous community to develop a community-based justice project that relates in some way to the Iacobucci Report subject matter and findings. Students will also be responsible for working collaboratively with other internship students within this program to develop and deliver at least two public legal education workshops to Indigenous community members on the role of the jury and the importance of representative juries within the justice system within Ontario. Preference will be given to students who have experience working with Indigenous communities and Indigenous community organizations. Recipients must demonstrate solid academic achievement.
