IDIA West Bengal Chapter is conducting a 2-Day Online Legal Workshop to help students tackle the various aspects of life at law school and beyond.
About the Organizers
IDIA is a pan-India movement to train underprivileged students and help transform them into leading lawyers and community advocates. IDIA is premised on the notion that access to premier legal education empowers marginalized communities and helps them help themselves. IDIA selects and trains students from underprivileged backgrounds (IDIA Trainees) to crack top law entrance examinations in India. Once they are admitted to top law colleges, it provides a scholarship to these students (IDIA Scholars) that comprises financial support, training and mentorship among other things.
About the Event
The West Bengal Chapter of the IDIA is organizing a 2-Day Online Legal Workshop on 29th and 30th January 2022.
The workshop is being conducted to help the participants to improve their skills in various activities that are part and parcel of life in a law school. The workshop consists of 7 sessions, and the following are the session cum speaker list:
- Session on Mooting Skills by Ashika Jain and Pratyay Panigrahi (4th Year, NUJS Students).
- Session on Debating by Abishek Sankar (5th Year, NUJS Student).

- Session on Career after Law School by Advocate Surjendu Sankar Das (AOR at the Supreme Court and a former partner at SAM).
- Session on Mental Health by Charvi Jain (Founder of Over a Cup of Tea).
The registered participants who attend all the sessions of the event shall receive an official certificate of participation from IDIA.
The IDIA-West Bengal Chapter has been involved in organizing such events in the past too as the team believes that these sessions provide a great opportunity for students who plan to enter law schools and existing students of law to understand various aspects of life at law school. These sessions are taken by experienced people which helps the students to deconstruct what it takes to thrive in law school – while still giving them space to chart their own path.
In addition to being a workshop that helps students in improving their skills related to extra-curricular activities which are undertaken in the law school, the said event also serves the purpose of helping the underprivileged children who are interested in the field of law as all the amount raised by the event is utilized by IDIA Central team to fund the various expenses incurred in training and development of IDIA Scholars. We are also glad to share with you that this time SCC has agreed to join as a media partner for our event.
