SRINAGAR, July 24: Responding to the need to put in place a proper scheme in the High Court of Jammu and Kashmir for engagement of law students (unpaid), either on a regular basis and/or e-internships, who may be remotely located as well, the Chief Justice has conceptualized this scheme.
Showing utmost concern towards the difficulties being faced by the law students in seeking opportunities for internships in offices/ chambers of Judges, law offices, lawyers chambers etc. and being unable to observe the practical working of courts and learn research work during the Covid 19 pandemic, the scheme has been accorded approval for implementation by the Chief Justice in the High Court of Jammu and Kashmir.
