Work is the focal point of the chambers and all other factors are ancillary.
On one hand, everyone keeps bragging about India being the youngest nation in the world and how the youth-power can help change the destiny of the country but on the other hand, when someone is genuinely trying to make a difference, he/she has to meet with such brutal words?

I have been to the Khan Market slum, and the Jhuggi-Jhopri cluster near Indian Habitat centre with Abraham, Deepshikha and Stuti to shoot for the documentary related to the displacement caused due to the common-wealth games.

When the party ended we came out saw our cars waiting but didn’t run like wild animals but turned back to look for a last time at that building which had taught us lessons not just in books but also in life.

HRLN (Human Rights Law Network) is a legal NGO headed by Mr. Colin Gonsalves (human rights activist and a renowned advocate). It has offices all over India. I had interned at their New Delhi office in Jungpura in April, 2009 for a month (in my first year).
The cordial relations maintained by the firm with clients and other advocates gave me a very basic insight into the levels of transparency adhered to by the firm. During the time when the courts were on a break, I was introduced to the corporate and other related divisions.
Its an easygoing internship, suggested for first years, but not worth it for students who want to learn law related work. (Please see that the internship experience is for HRLN, Bhopal. Do send in your internship experiences at HRLN's other offices).
The brochure promised unadulterated fun in the Sun City of Jodhpur. True to word, the fest that takes its name from the location of National Law University, Jodhpur was a brilliant cocktail of fun and the spirit of competition. RGNUL Patiala demonstrated that spirit in ample amount to not only grab the winners trophy piping
Be in the good books of your faculty members. Boot-lick them, if necessary. Or ask them "Sir/Ma'am, can I be your research assistant". This will sufficiently ego massage them. Scratching their heads, they are bound to ponder, "Have I turned into such a Big-shot, that I need a research assistant"?
A blunt pencil will save you time in CLAT. A cold water bottle will provide the much need relief in the May month. A wrist watch is definitely better than the wall clock in the CLAT hall. A fruit just before the CLAT exam and the energy it gives and the breath of the yogi
I’m studying in the third year at NLSIU, Bangalore. In the 1st year I interned with the Mazdoor Kisan Shakti Sangathan (MKSS) in Rajasthan. I really wanted to intern with the organization that had been doing amazing work with the NREGA and the RTI movement.
The overall experience of working with the Commission was wonderful and I definitely got a good grasp on the functioning of the Right to Information Act, 2005....After a while, processing letters and responding to them became a little monotonous.
There was not too much work, but I did get some good work especially some really cool sports law work given by Mr. Anish Dayal, one of the two partners at Fidus. It was cool because firstly I got to research on legal issues which affected many a leading

I did a three week internship at Malhotra and Malhotra Associates, a small law firm in Chandigarh. The first year's craze of a 'law firm' goaded me to apply where-ever possible and luckily the Malhotra guys accepted me.
