IFIM Law School

Corporate Affair And Outreach

IFIM Law School is based in Electronics City, Bangalore, where some of the top recruiters in the country are located. There is a saying in the world of legal academia: a law school is only as good as its alumni. With this in mind, the aim of IFIM Law School is to produce lawyers who are employable, socially responsible and can adapt to a wide variety of roles and responsibilities in their chosen sphere.

We have a dedicated internship and placement cell which is tasked with obtaining internships for our students’ and placing them with lawyers, law firms, in-house legal departments, public policy thank-tanks and NGOs in their final semester. As soon as our students arrive, they will have one on one meetings with faculty members as well as the internship and placement coordinator to chart out a career path for them. Each student will be assigned a faculty mentor, and once they are clear about what kind of lawyer they want to be, every effort is made to ensure that they are exposed to their chosen field through apprenticeships.

As per Bar Council of India norms, students have to undertake 20 weeks of internship during the BBA. LL.B. course. There is an IFIM Law School Internship Cell (IC) functioning under the guidance of a faculty member to help the students find internships.

This Internship Cell (IC) is constituted in order to govern matters relating to internships for students of IFIM Law School and to ensure compliance with the rules, regulations and guidelines of the Institution. This policy of the IC is duly accepted and brought into action by the Principal, IFIM Law School on Aug 1 2016 and has been approved by the Executive council.

Internship Chart

Student Testimonials

Xiaomi,
Bangalore


"I was fortunate enough to pursue corporate internship under one of the leading players in smart devices industry. This internship under Legal Department gave me an insight in to the corporate world where time is money and efficiency is what makes you succeed at greater heights. Being a part of the core legal team, I was assigned to draft agreements, contract reviewing, research on trademarks and copyright infringement matters."

Ms. Manju Shri. V,
5th year BBA LLB Student,
IFIM Law School
Registrar of Companies, Ministry of Corporate Affairs,
Bangalore


"Interning at the Registrar of Companies was as immense opportunity any BBA LLB student could ever have. As a legal trainee I got to learn the practical aspect of Company Law and how it is entirely different from its theoretical aspect. I also learnt drafting of legal documents such as show cause notices and prosecution documents which are of utmost importance in a law student’s career. Also, this internship taught me discipline, dedication and professionalism that are to be followed while working in a Central Government office. Having interned under the department of Ministry of Corporate Affairs made me realize that other than the stereotypical professional choices, there are other horizons that one could explore in the law career."
