The application process is quite simple. You need to send your Resume/CV along with a cover letter to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. You will get a reply from them within a weeks’ time.
Who can Apply?
A law student who has completed the subject of IPR in their law school can apply however, I had interns who applied even before they completed this paper in their law school. It will be a lot easier to grasp what is being told if you have learnt the subject already.
As it is a virtual internship, all communications are through either What’s App, Phone call or video conferences. They create a group with other interns and keep you posted about the tasks and other updates.
The entire team is friendly, they are always available to help you. The everyday routine video calls and meetings makes you feel at office.
You are appreciated for good work and they give you honest reviews and comments that will enable you to improve yourself.
In the end of the internship you would have learnt a great deal of IPR.
Nature of work:
This online internship is extra-ordinary and a perfect opportunity for all those who have a fervid interest towards the subject IPR.
There is an induction program on the first day followed by multiple presentations through which they teach you about the practical world of IP. You will be assigned the following tasks:
- Article writing
- Patent search
- Trademark search
- Drafting legal advice
Period of Internship
One month (flexible, not necessarily from the beginning of the month). I did my internship from July 6th 2020 till August 6th, 2020.
They pay you a pretty decent amount despite of the given lockdown.
