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.

It pains me to see so many of our students devastated during the campus recruitment phase when they fail to land jobs with prestigious firms. And the one question I always ask is: are you sure this is what you want to do? Or are you merely following in the illustrious footsteps of your seniors?
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 am a third year student from NUJS, Kolkata. At the end of my second year, I had done an internship at Mr. Amarjeet Singh Chandhiok's office in New Delhi. It turned out to be a great experience for me. For those who want quality research work in a
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.
