The Independent Thought Centre for Child Rights Law & Policy (ITCCRLP) is a platform providing a unique research opportunity for law students interested in Child Rights and Law. The unique aspect is the possibility of engaging in an advanced legal research experience sitting in your library/home.
Independent Thought understands the advantages of involving promising law students in legal research. Young law students have a fresh and crisp perspective on current affairs and the law. This chapter of the research programme deals with Child Rights law and policy and we are looking for law students who are passionate about changing the scenario of child rights around them by interpreting and understanding the law. We seek Independent Thinkers – those who can inspire and possible lead the world someday!
- 2nd and 3rd year students of the three year LL.B. programmes
- 3rd, 4th and 5th year students of five-year integrated LL.B. programmes.
Why Should You Apply?
If you are an enthusiastic learner, with a passion to see the world through different perspectives with a firm belief that you can bring about change, YOU are already an Independent Thinker.
Our past interns have shared that through this programme, their world-view has strengthened and that they have understood the nuances of interpreting the law with the vicissitudes of societal development. They have gained knowledge, understood and analyzed the law like lawyers. They have gained an edge over their peers and impressed their professors.
An Independent Thinker is always an asset! Past iThought interns are initiating an online discussion forum where all past and present volunteers would be engaged in insightful and enriching discussions on Child Rights & Law.
Last but not the least all students who complete their agreed assignments and completed 50 hours (within a period of 30 days) of self evaluated committed quality work, will be eligible for certification from Independent Thought. While complete freedom is vested on the Thinker about how many hours a week (s)he can give us, a minimum of 50 hours commitment is mandatory.
