Law FirmsPracticeNon ProfitLegal Outsourcing15 Best Places to Intern at in your first year of Law SchoolJan 07, 2012by Tanuj KaliaInternships are often one of the greatest learning experiences in a law student's life. However, finding the right internship after the first year itself can be difficult due to the sheer number of options. Tanuj Kalia (founder & CEO of Lawctopus) lists the 15 best places to intern at in your first year of law school.A first year law student, as the convention suggests, should intern at an NGO or a research organization which has at least some dealing with law. An ideal choice for a second internship in yourfirst year will be to explore something besides law which still adds to your skill set.For example an internship at a newspaper will polish your writing skills while an internship at an event management company will help you with your communication skills.Based on the internship experiences shared on Lawctopus, here the 15 best places to intern at for a first year law student:1.Human Rights Law Network(HRLN) (Read Internship review here)Search
a) HRLN, Delhi :A popular, trusted choice run by a renowned human rights lawyer Mr. Colin Gonsalves, HRLN is a go-to organization for any first year law student. HRLN deals with core legal and human rights work which makes it an ideal choice for an NGO internship. For those who love writing,HRLN’s sister magazine Combat Law gives you a good opportunity to get a publication or two under your belt.Regular opportunities called “Friday Meetings” which are done to facilitate interaction between a friendly Mr. Gonsalves and the interns are something to look forward to as well.The only turn-off is that HRLN does not pay any stipend to its interns. Interning during summers at the Delhi office will inevitably translate into a chance to make friends with law student internees across the country. A flip-side is that this could also mean less work per intern.b) HRLN, Mumbai: (Also called the Indian Center for Human Rights and Law, ICHRL). According to thisinternshipexperience, an HRLN Mumbai’ internship comes with two caveats: first is that the office location is a bit unsafe for girls and second that you must apply to the legal unit of the organization because the other units might not have interesting work for a law student.More information on HRLN’s internship application process is here2. PILSARC, New Delhi (Read internship review here) :Run by Mr. Rajeev Dhavan, a prominent lawyer at the Supreme Court, PILSARC stands for Public Interest Legal Support and Research Center.
