Criminal Justice and Police Accountability Project
Call for Law Interns
The Criminal Justice and Police Accountability Project (CPAProject) is a research and litigation intervention working to build accountability against the unjust criminalisation of marginalised communities, and towards decarceration.
We are looking for legal interns for remote internships from November 2020 to January 2021. The work will involve research on the disproportionate impact of criminal laws on marginalised communities and assisting with litigation before the High Court. We might consider applications for in person internships for those residing in Bhopal.
We will be able to pay a stipend of Rs. 8,000 per month for 20 to 25 hours of work every week. Preference will be given to students in their penultimate or final year of law school, and those adept at working with data. We encourage women, queer and gender non-conforming individuals, persons from Adivasi, Dalit, ex-criminalised/ DNT/ nomadic, other Bahujan and religious minority communities, persons with disabilities and others from LGBTQIA+ communities to apply.
Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV/ relevant work experience by
