Indian Case Laws is an initiative in the direction of making law more lucid, accessible and interesting to everyone and anyone- from law students to laymen. They do this by succinctly analysing case laws in our working area with the end result being a clear summary of landmark judgements.
Selected interns will assist ICL in developing summaries of cases and their analysis on key legal topics of our working area. Interns will have an opportunity to learn how to make case summaries and make a comparative study to analyze them. They will also be required to write complex legal concepts in a simple and lucid manner without missing out the legal essence and assist in preparing background research for the upcoming posts on the ICL blog.
Our mentors will guide them through emails and video conferencing throughout the internship period as and when required. The internship program aims to improve legal writing and research skills of law students and hone their skills to present complex legal issues in a simple and precise manner.
