“A terrific opportunity to work in the Department of Legal Affairs, as it introduces internships for law students for offices in Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Kolkata, and Chennai,” Minister of Law and Justice Kiren Rijiju tweeted about the internship programme.
Eligibility for the internship
The ministry of Law and Justice said that Indian students in their second and third years of a three-year degree programme, or in their third to fifth year of a five-year degree programme, or who have finished their LLB programme from any recognised college/law school/university, are eligible to apply for these internships.
