Internship @ PILSARC, New Delhi; Good Work, No Stipend, Rated 8/10

Internship at PILSARC (Public Interest Legal Support and Research Centre), New Delhi

Name of the intern: Nandini Pathak, Jindal Global Law School, 2nd year

How did you apply: I applied for the PILSARC internship though my University. They managed my application quite efficiently. It was a speedy process.

However, I believe my application was taken care of only because I had my University’s reference. Other interns at PILSARC told me that it was not a cake walk for them to get there. In fact, one of the interns had been applying to PILSARC since a year but could not get through until last summer.

Duration/timings: 6 weeks, 6 days a week, 10 am to 6 pm

First impression: It is a brilliant internship. The office is slow but highly resourceful. If you are interested in working then you will end up working a lot. But if you are there for the sake of doing an internship then you will end up doing nothing substantive at all.

The workplace is friendly. Dr. Rajeev Dhavan is a very jolly person and he appreciates hard-working interns a lot.

Main tasks: Case briefing, Note-making, drafting of legal opinions and attending conferences. I also had to do a lot of research work on refugee law.

Areas of law – Refugee law, Constitutional Law, Communal Violence Bill, Lokpal Bill, Parliamentary debates etc.

Best things: Working under Dr. Dhavan is a great experience. You get to learn a lot from him provided you live up to his expectations.

Stipend: No

Rating: 8/10
