Process of Application

I had obtained an internship at LexLife India through an advertisement for application on Lawctopus. I applied for this internship as the pandemic was going around and I had no work to do, especially since we had no online classes too.

I applied for the internship by sending a mail to internship.lexlife@outlook.com on 19th March 2020. Subsequently, on 24th March 2020, I received an acceptance mail for the internship from LexLife India. However, it was only a provisional acceptance, as I had to pay an enrolment fee ₹350 for this internship by 26th March 2020. Although it seemed sceptical for me to pay a fee for the internship, I paid the amount after a discussion regarding the same. On 27th March 2020, I received a payment confirmation mail along with my spot at LexLife for an Internship.

First Day Formalities & Impression

On 1st April 2020, I received guidelines for the Internship. As my work in this Internship entailed writing articles on topics allotted by them, the mail also included the topic for the first article along with the deadline. The topic allotted also contained various sub-topics that I must incorporate within the Article mandatorily. However, the sub-topics were not exhaustive, and I was given the liberty to incorporate other sub-topics which were relevant to the main topic.

My first topic for the article was ‘Explained: Corporate Social Responsibility’. On 9th April 2020, I was to submit the article only between 9 AM-10 AM.

Main Tasks

The main objective of this internship was to hone and sharpen my skills in legal research and article writing. Although I had previous experience in this matter, I believed that the more I learn, the more experienced I will be.

Most of the articles I was allotted were based on current affairs and regarding the issues happening around us, especially with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic. All the interesting articles grabbed my attention quickly. Researching on these topics were not difficult either as ample information regarding them were available on the internet.

The following were the topics allotted to me:

  • Explained: Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs: Powers and Functions
  • Montreal Protocol for Ozone Layer. 1987
  • NDPS Act, 1985

If the article met their standards, they would be published on their blog page, www.lexlife.in

Work Environment

Since this was an online internship, there was no “work environment” for me. However, the communication process between me and LexLife was smooth and hassle-free. This online internship also really helped me find a balance between personal life and the internship. Submitting articles once a week was not a big task, and I found ease in doing work during this internship.

The internship was for a period of 4 weeks with a topic for an article being allotted every week. Therefore, during my tenure as an intern at LexLife India, I had submitted a total of 4 articles on the above-mentioned topics.

Accommodation, Commute to the Office

Since it was an online internship, accommodation was not needed.

Stipend

Stipend was given based on your performance.

In addition, interns also receive a coupon code of 50% off on their online courses on IPR and ADR. Such perks made it a good experience for me as an intern with LexLife India.
