Internship is an integral part of the curriculum in the University since it provides a great opportunity for students to gain experience in a domain of their interest, create a network of contacts and develop their interpersonal skills, all this in addition to honing their skills to become a thorough professional in the field of law. To achieve this and much more, students must gain an understanding of the society at large and working with reputed advocates, law firms, NGOs and LPOs will elevate their learning immensely. During the internships, students also have an opportunity to secure PPOs which acts as an impetus for the students to work harder and with great commitment. Understanding the importance of internship for a law student it is mandatory for every student at SLS-H to undergo a minimum 9 winter/summer internship during a period of 5 years.
To track the progress made by the students during internship students are required to maintain a Internship Diary which is submitted to the T & P Cell after completion of each mandatory internship.The Internship Diary is a key document which will be considered for the final placement of a potential candidate.
