The IDIA project was initiated to reach out to marginalized and under-represented groups to sensitize them about law as a viable career option and help students from these communities to secure admission in India’s leading law colleges.
IDIA hopes that such access to legal education will pivot the empowerment of marginalized and underprivileged communities. IDIA is a pan-India law school movement, the cause of which Hyderabad Chapter at NALSAR hopes to further.
About the Internship
Increasing Diversity by Increasing Access to Legal Education (IDIA) Hyderabad is inviting applications for an internship from 18th March 2020 till 10th May 2020.
