Application Procedure


There is no application form. Applicants must submit an application package consisting of the following documents:


  • a cover letter that indicates:
      1. the desired term;
      2. a short statement about how the applicant expects to benefit from the program and/or what the applicant hopes to contribute to the organization; and
      3. a description of areas of interest and knowledge of law
  • curriculum vitae
  • a letter of recommendation from a professor or senior professional
  • copies of academic transcripts
  • proof of proficiency in a PCA working language (for non-native speakers of a PCA working language only, see above)

To be considered, application packages must be complete. If all the above-listed documents are not available to the applicant before the application deadline, the missing documents may be submitted separately provided that the cover letter clearly notes an expected follow-up date.


Application packages may be submitted electronically or in hard copy. See “Contact and Other Information” below for the e-mail and postal address.

Complete application packages can be submitted at any time up to four months prior to the beginning of the desired term. Application deadlines are thus:


September 1, for Term 1;

December 1, for Term 2;

March 1, for Term 3; and

June 1, for Term 4.
