Name of the intern: Nikita Agarwal, National Law University Delhi, Vth Year

Name of the organisation. City: Majlis. Mumbai

How big was the office? Team strength: The office was quite spacious but not very huge. The team is not large and can do with some more lawyers.

Application procedure: There is an online application form that needs to be filled in the majlis website: http://www.majlisbombay.org/

Duration/timings: 2 months; from 10 am to 8 pm

Accommodation: I lived in this PG in Bandra, which was really bad. It was however quite cheap according to Bombay standards and also had a tiny kitchen which helped cut down my food expense massively.

First impression: I was asked to read for the first week. I was introduced to everyone including Flavia Ma’am.

Main tasks: At Majlis, I was assigned to work under a senior lawyer, Adv. Nausheen Yousuf who basically heads the Domestic Violence wing.

The work assigned to me was massive, from tonnes of drafting, to having one-on-one interactions with clients, to going to courts, it was the entire package. I also got to work on a rape case.

Work environment, people: Amazing work ethic. The people are helpful, warm and accommodating They even got me food because I don’t live in Mumbai. My senior lawyer was the best teacher ever and Flavia Ma’am was literally amazing.

Best things: The amount of work I got to do was great. Majlis only takes students who are willing to work for a longer duration. This in turn gives the students to work more than just like interns.

Bad things: No stipend considering how expensive Bombay can be.

What did you do to chill: We always ate lunch together which turned into a huge conversation-which comfortably switched from important women rights issues to talking absolute nonsense.

Stipend: Nil

Anything else you’d like to tell: I loved it there and I suggest anyone who wants to work with women rights’ advocacy to go there. You will never be the same again.

  3. Hi Nikita,

    I am a graduate in law from a relatively new NLU and am interested in working for Majlis. Could you tell me the approximate pay-scale of a lawyer working for the organisation? As in, do they pay enough to survive independently in an expensive city like Mumbai?

  4. Hi, I am a student of an upcoming NLU. Could you tell me if they provide PPOs and whether they recruit or not? Considering that I am someone who actually wants to work in such a field, is there any scope of employment there for someone who interns there?

    • Hi Sushila, yes they give PPOs. And they are always hiring young lawyers so you should definitely apply.

      All the best. 🙂
