Research Scholar

Squad-001Indian Case Laws is a unique initiative to demystify the law. It is a comprehensive legal platform that can not only be used as a sound academic tool, but also as a means to develop conceptual understanding of complex legal issues.

We are constantly on the lookout for talented individuals. Being a part of our team is like having a mocktail- a mixture of hard work, commitment, legal acumen and a dash of out of the box thinking sprinkled with lots of fun!

RESEARCH SCHOLAR

We are inviting applications for the position of research scholars from law students in India who can assist us with our ongoing research and related work.

Work Description: The work will typically involve preparing case summaries, writing informative articles, preparing manuals, and working on several other ideas that we are presently working on. Working with ICL will ensure that you develop the set of skills required to survive and outperform at any law firm. This will help you hone your basic research and analytical skills in addition to developing a professional style of working. The idea is to make you “firm ready” so that when you join a law firm you should never feel like a fish out of the water. As they say, the real learning starts when you come into the profession. We just aim to prepone this “real learning” for you.

As a research scholar you will be delegated exactly the similar kind of work which you can expect at any typical law firm as a junior associate, be it doing a due diligence, drafting contracts or researching on specific issues. In addition, you will also learn how to present things in a professional way and deal with challenges, especially in  respect of time constraint. This will definitely go a long way to keep you much ahead of your friends, especially when it comes to recruitment interviews.

Remuneration: While there is no remuneration, the research will be duly acknowledged and published with the name of the researcher on ICL and a certificate of experience will be issued after successful completion six months of association. Immediately after six months, based on the individual’s performance, he/she will have the opportunity to work as an independent author on ICL’s website and thus become part of our Core Team.

Copyright: The copyright on the work shall remain with ICL but the author shall be free to republish his/her work on any other media. Rest assured, not only will your effort be suitably rewarded in terms of gaining a foothold in the field of legal entrepreneurship but also the immense satisfaction that comes with it. Moreover, you shall be certified as an ICL Research Scholar.

    • Dear Shelly

      We generally take fourth or fifth year students as the research scholar. I am afraid, you may not be able to apply at this time. However, if you need any help or guidance regarding studies or internships, you can ask us about it. We would be happy to help.
