Internship



As per the Rules of Legal Education laid down by the Bar Council, 2008, each five year student has to undergo an internship for not less than twenty weeks to carry out legal studies under Non-Governmental Organizations, trial advocates, appellate advocates, judiciary, legal regulatory authorities, legislatures and Parliament, other legal functionaries, market institutions, law firms, companies, Local Self Government and in other legal institutions where such training can be imparted to such students. Students cannot undergo internship in any year continuously for more than four weeks. All students are expected to undergo training under trial and appellate advocates not more than twice.

                 The Bar Council has also stipulated that each student shall keep an Internship Diary. The Internship Diary has to be prepared and kept by the student in such a manner so that the evaluator may be able to assess the cumulative performance of the student. The Diary shall contain the details of training a student has undergone, the total number of days of each session of training and the nature of work done by the student/training imparted to him. After each spell of such internship, the record, prepared by the student in his own handwriting, shall be signed by the head/chief of the institution where he has undergone training, and the faculty-in-charge of him. The students shall be guided and evaluated by the faculty as appointed by the Principal. A student who has to complete more than four weeks of internship shall not be promoted to the tenth semester. He can rejoin the course only after completion of the required weeks of internship in the subsequent batches:

                  Provided that, after each spell of internship, the evaluator/s shall assess the performance of the students, on the basis of the days of his attendance in the internship, involvement and awareness about the work accomplished and also the preparation of the records. The evaluator shall record the assessment objectively after perusing the record of internship. A student who has satisfactorily completed the internship shall alone be eligible to be promoted to the next semester/year. A student who has not satisfactorily completed the internship programme has to redo the same with their subsequent batch.

                   Provided further that, being a component of the Clinical paper IV, attending the chamber of lawyers and observing trials in two cases shall be confined to the tenth semester and its record shall be prepared separately in the Record of the Clinical paper IV, ie., FL 38 Moot Court Exercise and Internship. Attending the lawyer’s chambers before the tenth semester will not be reckoned for the purpose of FL 38.

                 The Internship Record shall contain details of training for 20 weeks (ie., excluding the training for FL 38). While assessing the candidate for FL 38, due weightage shall be given to his performance / involvement in the compulsory internship of the previous semesters as evidenced by his Internship Record.
