The Macedonian Young Lawyers Association (MYLA) is an civil society organization established in 2003 aiming to strengthen the position of young lawyers in the legal profession and in the society as a whole. In its 15 years of existance, MYLA has devoted itself to human rights protection, especially in the field of protection against discrimination, protection of the rights of migrants and asylum seekers and establishing the rule of law principle and good governance. Through establishing an internship programme for young lawyers, MYLA offers law faculty graduates the opportunity to begin their professional path through gaining experience in the most successful attorneys at law and state institutions.
The trainee will have the opportunity to familiarize with the application of international human rights law at the domestic level and to become more aware of the important role played by the legal professions in this respect. Specific focus of interest will be given to the following areas: anti-discrimination, right to asylum, migration, access to justice and strategic litigation. The main tasks the trainee will have to fulfill include:
- research and writing on human rights law and issues;
- young lawyers' education support, such as research, writing, public outreach and events;
- writing comprehensive, accurate and professional reports on a given topic in the areas of MYLA's work.
