The Australian High Commission in Kuala Lumpur has also regularly taken on students as interns and offered support for the students in Kuala Lumpur.


The unpaid internships last for 4 weeks (20 working days). In addition to satisfying the requirements of LLB 397 Legal Internship, the Malaysian Internship:

  • gives students a first-hand learning experience in Asia while enhancing their workplace skills and expertise;
  • broadens cultural awareness and enhances appreciation of how the law operates and is practiced in Malaysia (an interesting jurisdiction because of its blend of codified law, common law and Sharia Law);and
  • enhances student understanding of the challenges and benefits of global legal practice; and
  • exposes students to post graduate employment and study options in Malaysia.


The Federal Government funding varies but largely meets the cost of travel to and from Kuala Lumpur and accommodation expenses over the internship. Funding is usually based on a limit of 5 students each year.


Applications for the 2024 Malaysian Legal Internship Program will be available soon.

The 4 week internship will be from 18 November to 13 December 2024.
