Freshly out of school, the first year law students should take it a bit easy. Though doing different internships in different organizations is one of the best aspects of studying law. The focus of the first year students should not be on getting a job but as a new comer you should focus on developing ideas and understanding the legal world. You should work on the principle of adoption and elimination. Start processing of how things work and year by year build a path towards a career you would invest in for life.
In the first year, you can intern with the renowned NGO’s or Law Commissions like NHRC, SHRC, SIC, NCW etc. This will enable you to understand and know the ground reality in this field. Another option is to intern with a trial lawyer. This will help you to start edging and shaping your skills early. Get involved in substantial legal thinking. Start knowing where exactly your interest lies in. You can also intern in a research training internship to improvise your research and writing skills.
