Review for INTERNATIONAL BRIDGES TO JUSTICE, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I volunteered with International Bridges to Justice from September 2010 until December 2010 as a law school graduate on deferral from my permanent job with a law firm in Washington, DC. Overall, I really enjoyed my experience with IBJ. The staff is very small, which means a lot of one on one attention, and very dedicated to their organization. I worked primarily on helping establish and execute a grass roots competition to attract local attorneys in primarily Latin American countries to submit proposals for ideas they had on how to strengthen the rule of law in their country through educational or hands on programs. It was a good experience in teamwork as well as work management. Furthermore, I wrote a grant to help increase project funding for grass roots initiatives that focused on the intersection of criminal justice and HIV/AIDS.

Role:  Volunteer & I helped fund local grass roots projects that sought to strengthen the rule of law in their home countries.
