Calling all students who are passionate about human rights - the ASASI internship Program is back!

Interested in public interest litigation at a renowned law firm? Keen on combining your knack for research with your passion for social justice? Or are you more of a public policy person? No matter which your preference is, the ASASI Internship Program 2020 has something for you! Choose from a list of 9 partner firms and civil societies, each specialising in their own fields of expertise and social issues. Immerse yourself in a hands-on experience as you work alongside human rights activists in Malaysia, beyond the confines of your law degree.

Our confirmed partner firms and organisations include:-

1. Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights (MCCHR)

2. Malik Imtiaz Sarwar

3. Women’s Aid Organisation (WAO)

4. Center for Orang Asli Concerns (COAC)


6. Amnesty International


8. The Center to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4)

9. Suara Rakyat Malaysia (SUARAM)

How to apply

To apply, complete the application form. Preliminary assessments of all applications are done  based on the quality of essays submitted along the application forms. There will be one to two rounds of interviews, one done by KPUM and the other by the participating organisations should they request an additional interview.


While KPUM strives to allocate organisations according to the applicants’ preferences (and vice versa), we regret that this unfortunately cannot be guaranteed. However, we assure our applicants that an internship with any of our Partners will give you an invaluable opportunity to work on the front lines of human rights law and activism in Malaysia.


Please note that most participating organisations require a two-month commitment from their interns. Participants should acknowledge that failure to honour their commitments to this internship without providing an adequate reason may lead to them being blacklisted from any and all future KPUM internships, events, and initiatives. 


Who can apply

Applications are open to all Malaysian law students.


Don't miss out on this amazing opportunity to intern with human rights organisations!
