NLU Delhi has created history by being the youngest college ever to participate in the world finals of Jessups International Moot Court Competition. Here is an exclusive interview with Shreya Rastogi and Akshay BD (the oralists)
There were as many as 176 delegates taking part in serious discussions during the day and were in for an equal amount of fun during the socials which included a delegate dance, the MUN ball and the championship dinner.
The most interesting experience of interning with Mr. Tulsi is that interns have to participate in moot trials and debates on the issues which are being dealt in his cases. The interns are divided into groups and are required to take stands and present their views. The topic is given a day in advance for
The work is confined to study and research on matters pertaining to consumer disputes. The matters were innumerable – from tribunals to courts. Hefty amount of litigation by and against the company. But I must say that work is quite insightful.
It has been more than one year since I have stepped into Oxford, and in this journey, I have undergone a metamorphosis. Through these columns, I am going to explore and bring to light my experiences, suggestions and lessons learnt in the pursuit of the degree of Bachelor of Civil Law at Oxford.
As a service provider, the lawyer has to obviously handle the business and the legal sides of a transaction. As a person the lawyer also needs to talk and interact and converse.

It will be him--brain, body and blood-- in the lawyer's office--cement, chairs and clerks--and he'll be putting his CV-page, prayer and ink- on the lawyer's desk. He'll talk to the lawyer about why he wants the internship. He'll treat it like an interview.
The work at Global Juris Consultants was limited to researching with strict deadlines, help in drafting court documents and assisting in the court and co-ordinating with the lawyers in the Court. I also learnt to make practical arguments which you will not find in any book or judgments, processes in the court, client counseling, etc.
The DLSA office is situated in the Patiala House Court Complex in Delhi. Finally our internship schedule was prepared and for a few days I was given the work of observing the court proceedings in the Patiala House Compound.

What will the recruiter do with the DOB? Wish you on your birthday? I would have really loved to as a recruiter (if I ever don that hat); but well, I am sure you and your friends will have a blast among yourselves. At least for internship applications, such details are redundant.
Most of the associates are young and everyone there is really patient and helpful. Even had the opportunity to interact with one of the senior partners there, and was surprised, to be frank, with the hospitality.
There is no such method of application. You have to approach him directly and convince him to let you take up an internship with him. He is very hospitable and if convinced will not refuse. An internship with Mr.Razack provides “Practical First-hand experience”. You could work at your own convenience but the work is so
The Raghu Dixit Project had the crowd singing and dancing to their tunes, especially with their signature song, Hey Bhagwaan. The winners of Strawberry Fields were Goddess Gagged from Mumbai. They won themselves an all expenses paid tour of the country as part of the Hard Electric Tour 2010.
That's probably the only prerequisite, a curious mind
# You need to be well read to debate well
# By and large Parliamentary, I find it the most engaging form of debate - it allows for very little fluff and hiding behind confusing words.

It must be noted that IDIA Hyderabad has conducted sensitization programs and aptitude tests for the disabled students at Sai Junior College founded by the Devnar Foundation for the Blind and teaching these students should be, as the IDIA blog post puts it, "a self discovery".
An internship at a start-up might turn you into an entrepreneur and a mid-sized organisation will show you the magic of the 'compromised cubicle comfort'. A RelationShip comes before an InternShip. Learn to see the Ship's size and know what will sink you and what will be your saviour.
NCW was working on their upcoming initiative “SAVE THE HOME, SAVE THE FAMILY” due to which lots of our work was directed towards the same. We were asked to make background notes and presentations for this purpose and present it to the Joint Secretary at NCW.
Aditya Sondhi wears many hats. His contemporaries respect him for his legal prowess. Those who have heard him in courts have high regards for his top notch oratory skills. He is a fabulous writer with a book called 'Unfinished Symphony' published. Our readers who like good writing must read this piece called 'Tipsy takes it
This was an extremely demanding internship, so I would not suggest it to someone who wants to enjoy their vacations in Delhi. As one of Mr. Luthra’s juniors put it, “In litigation, there are no Sundays.”
