Internship with PRS Legislative Research — Law/Public Policy — Delhi

An exciting winter internship opportunity for students interested in policy debates and functioning of Parliament in India. IAS aspirations anyone?


About PRS Legislative Research: – PRS analyses legislation and provides non-partisan research inputs to Members of Parliament on legislative and policy issues.  In addition, it is the only organization to track and collate data on the functioning of legislatures and legislators in India. The PRS staff comprises a dedicated team of professionals with different areas of expertise including law, economics, political science, engineering and communication. I would say PRS has put together a dream core team – have a look to see for yourself.

About Internship: – The internship projects will vary depending on the issues that come up for debate when the Parliament is in session, the needs of PRS and the interests of the intern. The intern will be working out of the PRS office.  The project will provide exposure to and involvement in the law-making process in India.  Each intern will be assigned one or two focused projects for the duration of the internship.

Who can apply: – Candidates with strong writing and analytical skills and some knowledge of law/public policy

Application Deadline: – 30th September, 2012

Location: – Delhi

Duration: – Min. 4 weeks (November-December)

Stipend: – Not mentioned, but I would not really worry about it given the team and the opportunity

How to apply: – Please refer PRS page for more info and application details

Editor’s note 1: – Information above is my interpretation and paraphrasing of what I found on the shared link. If you have any more specific information on this internship or have interned in this program before and would like to share your experience, please leave a comment.

Editor’s note 2: – While it seems like an obviously relevant opportunity for political science, law and public policy students, I would think that for other streams students too (especially those with IAS dreams or political aspirations), this is a wonderful chance to get to know the system from inside.

    Does PRS offer a winter internship too? I missed the deadline for summer 2011. Is there a chance in Winter 2011 or waiting for summer 2012 is the only option?

      You will have to check with PRS directly on this as I am not aware. The link in the post would take you to the PRS page where you can find the contact details of the person whom you could write.

      Let me know if you need any more assistance, wish you all the best!

      Thanks
