On the basis of the written SOP selection of intern is done and then the information will be sent via mail. For further details of the format refer to NLS website.
On the first day you have to meet the Programme Head and the introduction about the work is given, they also assign the work or topic on which you have to perform in the upcoming one month.
The office is located on the 1st floor of Academic block in National Law school campus, which has one of the biggest offices among all the research centre offices under NLSIU. The office has a conference area where all the meetings and presentation takes place.
The interns are made to work in National law School library which is a very neat-clean and silent place and is considered Asia’s largest law library and has a documentation center.
Since I was working under Right Education head under CCL, on the very first day I was asked to read various articles on Education and select a topic, which I might find interesting and would be willing to work I found such a topic and started working on it.
I had to give my work progress report daily to Niranjan Sir, he used to give me further guidance on the topic and provide me with relevant reading materials. At the end of the internship, I was supposed to give a presentation on my Project topic and hand over the report to sir.
I also got an opportunity to rapporteur and prepare the report of One-day consultation on the Primary stakeholders on draft a National Policy on Education.
The library is well equipped and up to date. You are given to work and use books inside the NLSIU library which is very resourceful. After the internship, your writing, reading, researching skills will improve a lot
No bad things
Accommodation and Food
We were lucky enough to get the accommodation inside the Hostel of NLSIU itself. Condition being, apply as early as possible.
The food inside the College is very cheap and good. There are a lot of food joints nearby as well. If you don’t get a hostel room, you can easily get pg in nagarbhavi.
Anything else, What you did to chill out?
My chill-out sessions used to be, going to the library and reading books. I also loved the time which I spent discovering various food places.
I am an army girl! In a barbie world! Keeper of 5 dogs. On a diet for now. Sometimes I might make punctuation mistakes, but I make up for it by bringing in a crore or two extra. What's more important, a misplaced comma, or a well-placed crore?
