Internship Opportunity @ The Enviro Legal Defence Firm (ELDF), Delhi
Welcome To Enviro Legal Defence Firm:
The Enviro Legal Defence Firm (ELDF), India’s first environmental law firm, is a manifestation of a dream, to be different; to achieve; to make a difference. Environment is the canvas, law is the brush. We look forward to painting a life, which is beautiful, clean, green, fresh and honest. ELDF aims at mainstreaming the discipline of environment and development law, resolving conflicts over natural resources and strengthen environmental jurisprudence. It’s our belief that there is a great potential to contribute to this discipline by bridging the gap that exists between the field-based conflicts and the courts or other formal adjudicating bodies. We also believe that ‘Practicing law’ has to grow beyond the formal courts of law.
With a view to providing a forum to encourage young lawyers to contribute to the discipline of natural resources law, ELDF conducts Internship Programmes for both national and international law students. The internship programmes are often a mix of field and theory, where law students and fresh professionals from various Law schools undergo a rigorous training under senior staff of ELDF for periods ranging from six to twelve weeks.
The students from various National Universities namely University of Delhi, Faculty of Law, NALSAR, Hyderabad, NLSIU, Bangalore, Symbiosis Law College, Pune, NLIU, Bhopal, Amity Law School, Indraprastha Law College, New Delhi, Lucknow University, Faculty of Law, Government Law College, Mumbai, Banaras Hindu University, GNLU, Gandhinagar, Faculty of Law, Government Law College under Guwahati University, National Institute for Advanced Legal Studies, Kochi, Kerala, and; International Universities namely Louis & Clarke Law School, College of Law, London, Vermont Law School, USA, Michigan Law School, U.S.A, Harvard Law School, U.S.A, UC Berkeley, USA, University of Manchester, UK have participated in this program.
