Call for Natural Justice Fellowship Program Applications and Internship Applications

Natural Justice, a reputed international NGO working towards biodiversity conservation and strengthening local communities, has called for applications for the Natural Justice Fellowship Program and the Internship program. Note that the Fellowship carries with it a monthly honorarium of twenty thousand rupees. 4 July 2014 is the deadline for the fellowship program. The internship positions are unpaid. Internship applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. For details, see here.

As I know from various sources, Natural Justice is a highly reputed organization of commendable international standing working on diverse areas such as biodiversity, climate change, agriculture, intellectual property and human rights. According to my personal opinion, a stint with Natural Justice is always highly valuable and enriching. I am of the view that law students should consider interning in such organizations at least once in their student lives even if these areas may not end up as their calling in lives. In hindsight, I wish I had done what I am preaching now!!
