The Legal Services program at CAMH offers student internship opportunities throughout the summer lasting approximately 14 weeks. The summer internship is aimed at keen law students with a proven interest in the field of Health Law and, more specifically, Mental Health Law. Through participation in the 14 week internship, students are given exposure to Consent and Capacity Board hearings, appellate level court submissions, policy development, corporate governance, government submissions, educational initiatives and other legal writing. The aim of the internship is to offer students an opportunity to gain substantive, hands-on, practical and real-life experience in health law. While all applicants will be considered, those students interested in litigation are likely most suited to the role.
