I haven't started law school yet but was wondering what current law students would think about this idea. I would like to do an internship abroad after finishing my first year of law school, and I am very strongly interested in international human rights law. I found an organization called Projects Abroad that offers a Law & Human Rights Internship in Morocco. You have to be able to speak high/intermediate French (which I nearly can, but have over a year to work on this) and would be placed in a private law firm to research case precedents and develop litigation, etc., etc. However, this isn't something you apply for-mostly you just pay and go, as long as your references check out. I wasn't looking to earn school credit, only to gain experience overseas in public int'l law. Is this a bad idea because it's not an offical ABA sponsored/listed/etc. opportunity? I can always do something more prestigious later on, right? I know this is far in the future but I would need to start saving now and am curious anyway. What are your thoughts?

Thanks for your input!
