Why you should intern with us.
As an intern and law student, we never get to learn things which we should ideally be knowing before passing out of law school and joining a law firm. First, getting a good internship at a top notch law firm is getting tougher and tougher. Secondly, even though you make it to one of these, a top tier law firms hardly trust an intern with the serious work because of several reasons, including client’s confidentiality, your raw set of skills and understanding of the sensitive issues, to name a few.
At Indian Case Laws, we aim to impart you a learning which no law school ever teaches a student. Our endeavour is to bring the exposure of a typical law firm and corporate houses right on your plate even though you summer internships are over for now through our online internship programme.
Interns will have an opportunity to learn how to make case summaries and do a comparative study of the precedents. They will also have the opportunity to learn how to write good research articles for their projects, research papers and thesis. They can sharpen their diverse set of skills, including presentation, research, case law search, drafting, among others. For instance, finding useful information about licenses and registrations will help them in preparing any kind of DDR (Due Diligence Report) when they join a law firm after their law school. Development of manuals and guidelines on various subjects will make them familiar with the working methodologies and style of drafting at any law firm. This will definitely go a long way to keep them ahead of their friends. Similarly, compiling case lists on various issues can turn them into a living encyclopedia case laws on any relevant issues. Furthermore, they can keep themselves updated with the key changes in the new Companies Act and its various aspects.
