    Mr David Hamer

    “I finished a summer clerkship with Clayton Utz at the start of 2014 and then I did an honours thesis.

I had always been interested in international law and also wanted to work at a court. The ICTY had about 50 interns at any one time, and there was a big intern cohort while I was there, which was great because I got to meet all these students and lawyers from all parts of the world.”
