Types of Internship

ALG administers the following Internships under its Internship Program:

1. Pre-Final Year Internship

This internship is only for students in the pre-final year of their law degree program. You may apply for the Pre-Final Year Internship anytime from 12 months before entering the Pre-Final year to 1 month before exiting it. This means you can apply for a Pre-Final Year Internship as soon as you enter your antepenultimate year of law degree. During the entire period of the internship, the Intern must be a full-time student in the pre-final year of the law degree program. The internship is for one month, and it is not possible to do more than one internship while one is a pre-final Year student. Pre-Final Year Internships are not for-pay internships.

2. Final Year (Follow-On) Internship

This internship is only for students in the final year of their law degree program who have previously completed a Pre-Final Year Internship at ALG and have also received a recommendation from ALG to apply for a Final Year (Follow-On) Internship. It is possible to apply for a Final Year (Follow-On) Internship anytime from earning a recommendation to apply for a Final Year (Follow-On) Internship till 1 month before exiting the Final Year. However, there must be a gap of at least 6 months between the Pre-Final Year Internship and the Final Year (Follow-On) Internship. During the entire period of the internship, however, the Intern must be a full-time student in the final year of the law degree program. Final Year (Follow-On) Internship is for one month, and it is not possible to do more than one internship while one is a final Year student.

In case the Final Year (Follow-On) Internship is an assessment internship for the Placement of the intern, it will be a paid internship. Currently, the stipend for a paid Final Year (Follow-On) Internship is INR 12,500/-.

While a recommendation to apply for Final Year (Follow-On) Internship does strengthen the application if made but it does not guarantee selection. We are selective in giving our recommendations for Final Year (Follow-On) Internships, and we are even more selective in accepting applicants for Final Year (Follow-On) Internships. Final Year (Follow-On) Internships are granted to only those candidates who can be expected to earn a recommendation to apply for placement in an attorney position. In case the intern had already secured a placement before the commencement of the Final Year (Follow-On) Internship, it shall not be an assessment internship and hence not a paid internship.

3. Final Year (Regular) Internship

This internship is only for students in the final year of their law degree program who did not intern with ALG in their Pre-Final Year or interned with ALG but did not receive a recommendation for the Final Year (Follow-On) Internship. You may apply for the Final Year (Regular) Internship anytime from 12 months before entering the Final Year to 1 month before exiting it. This means you can apply for a Final Year Internship as soon as you enter your pre-final year. During the entire period of the internship, however, the Intern must be a full-time student in the final year of the law degree program. Final Year (Regular) Internship is for one month, and it is not possible to do more than one internship while one is a final Year student. Final Year (Regular) Internships are not for-pay internships.

Categories of Internship
