Increasing Diversity by Increasing Access to Legal Education (IDIA), Hyderabad Chapter invites applications for an internship tenure between November 2015 and April 2016.
The internship is open to students who are pursuing their bachelor’s degree or a higher level of education.
Interns are expected to work with the Training & Materials Team of the Hyderabad Chapter, training IDIA scholars for CLAT (Common Law Admission Test) and other entrance examinations that open doors to legal education.
This will entail teaching and preparing study guides for Legal Aptitude, Logical Reasoning, English, General knowledge (both static and current) and Math (upto the curriculum for 10th grade).
Kindly note that IDIA scholars are all pursuing education in either the 11th or 12th standard.
The IDIA project was initiated to reach out to marginalized and under-represented groups to sensitize them about law as a viable career option and help students from these communities to secure admission in India’s leading law colleges.
IDIA hopes that such access to legal education will pivot the empowerment of marginalized and underprivileged communities.
IDIA is a pan-India law school movement, the cause of which Hyderabad Chapter at NALSAR hopes to further.
Interns are expected to be:
Highly-Motivated individuals who take on initiatives regularly and do not need constant supervision.
Familiar with the structure and pattern of CLAT.
Creative and patient to teach differently-abled students in an effective manner.
Training and guiding the IDIA scholars for various law entrance exams.
Reporting after each class of the scholars’ progress.
The minimum duration of an internship is four weeks.
As of now, interns are expected to work in the following schools in Hyderabad.
Sai Junior college (near Bible house)
APSWR (near Amma Ashram in Mahendra hills)
During weekends, interns are expected to work for 10 hours.
During the weekday, work will only be for 2 hours.
This rule is however not set in stone and selected interns will be given some flexibility in timings if the need arises.
A modest stipend will be paid to cover travel expenses.
A certificate will be awarded for interns and it will state that the internship is a full-time program.
The subject line of the mail should read “Application for Internship: IDIA Hyderabad”.
