Duration of internship and timings

10th January, 2015 – 10th February, 2015.

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

The very first day I was asked to go to the Computer Center. The person there configured my laptop, so that I connect to the WiFi from any place in the NLSIU Campus.

Other than that you are supposed to meet Dr. Sarasu Esther Thomas, under who the Center for Women and Law functions. But as she was out of town I was only able to meet her after a couple of days.

The interns usually meet a person called Ashwini who co-ordinates the internships. The option to either work from the library or the center’s office.

The office space was shared with the another research center. but the office has enough space to accommodate interns as well.

Main tasks

The tasks majorly involved research work. The topics given to me revolved around current areas of law.

My research work involved search for articles on a specified topics.

The other task which was given that I had to search for articles from the journals in the library and get them photo copied and submit it to the Karnataka Judicial Academy.

Another task which was given to me was to search for case laws, download them and mail them to one of the researchers.

Work environment and people

The work environment is very pleasant. The people at the center are very friendly.

Dr Sarasu Esther Thomas is a person to look up to. She is very friendly. You can go to her with any kind of obstacle you are facing in your work. She is a wonderful person to talk to as well.

The others at the Center are pretty approachable.

Best things

The best thing working at the Center was that I was able to work from the library and whenever I had time to spare, I was able to pull out books and read about varied topics. The vast library of NLSIU is a great place to work from.

Bad things

The connection to the net is very restrictive. Even in the library, it is only in the basement that I was able to connect to the WiFi effectively. Due to this, the work assigned to me went a little slow.

The other inconvenience was that the closest bus stop to the campus is about a kilometer away and the buses are not very frequent at the bus stop. The walk back in evening used to be tiring.

Stipend

No Stipend.

Biggest Lessons

The biggest lessons learnt were that there is never enough research in one particular area of law. Law being the dynamic subject that it is will always surprise with an aspect which will change you point of view.

Internship at the Center for Women and Law is suggested for one’s first internship.

Any Other Thing

The most memorable thing for me was when Sarasu Ma’am had taken me and the staff of the Center out to lunch.

The time spent at the center was educational and enriching.

    Hey admin, this is a urgent question the internship experience we submit here become the property of lawctopus right, we give right to lawctopus to publish or modify it that I understand, but can lawctopus publish it on other blogging site without informing us, i need some explanation on this as I saw my internship experience on some other website

    • administrator says:

      We do not give internship experiences to other sites at all (it would be like helping our own competition!). Please let me know where it’s published. They are violating our (and your) copyright.

      • Anomoyous says:

        go to law gup-shup page and check internship experiences, some they write as per lawctopus and some they do not mention, in either case, it’s a breach of our students trust who publish their entries here and of yours who take so much time to get the entries published. Check it now and do thank me later with a gift lol.
