PhD Student Internship Opportunities
The Scottish Graduate School in Social Sciences (SGSSS) has unveiled a number of new internship opportunities for PhD students in Scotland. This includes at least one specific internship for a socio-legal studies and criminology student interested in youth justice.

Internships are excellent opportunities for students to work outside of their normal environment. Not only do internships often allow students to take ownership of important pieces of research which may directly affect policy-making and the work of practitioners, civil servants, charities (and so on) but they also offer a chance to network outside a student's normal setting.
