How did you Apply?

I sent my resume and a cover letter in the body of the email at least a month in advance to crip@mnlu.mumbai.edu.in 

First Day Formalities, Infrastructure, First Impression

It being a virtual internship due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, the first day formalities did not include any physical meetings and induction programme, however, the team was nice enough to list out the terms of internship and explained a little about their on-going short-term project of which I will be a part of. This definitely gave me a picture of what I will be working on for the next 30 days and helped me plan out things well in advance and be mentally prepared for such work. Moreover, an IPR enthusiast as I am, I was extremely happy with the work given and looked forward to the same.

Main Tasks

I was assigned one of the facets of IPR, which is, copyright law. The project required me to summarize case laws of various sub-topics under Copyright Law and figure out recent developments in the same. This really helped me to scrutinize almost 15-20 cases which gave me an overall understanding of judicial perspective about copyright in India. I also had the privilege to summarize and understand a few USA and UK judgments and I could compare it with India as well.

Good Things

The good thing about the internship was that your work is actually looked at carefully and constructive feedback is provided which not only boosts your morale but also motivates you to do better. everything was required to be done diligently and with utmost dedication which is expected from any intern.

Since it is a research centre the work depends on what their team is working at that time, but all in all, the experience was enriching for a person like me who enjoys copyright law the most out of all the other facets!

Bad Things

I would not term any instance or work as ‘bad’ at CRIP, MNLU Mumbai.

Stipend (If Any)


Accommodation, Commuting to Office 

As mentioned above, it was a virtual opportunity because of the pandemic.

Anything Else

While being assigned for work, the team took into consideration that some may require more time than the other, and they were so accommodative with respect to guidelines. Further, at the end of the internship a detailed feedback was provided which is really helpful for a student who is looking to improve at every phase.
