About the Legal Research Assistant Opportunity

There are openings for internships in my office. Apart from the regular litigation work, I am currently working on the 2nd edition of my commentary on the “Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code“. The first edition was published by EBC Publishers and the link of the same is in the comments.



The research assistants are to assist me in drafting, research, and editing. The work of the interns will be classified as research assistance.


Since the semester has already started, students who are not otherwise engaged in co-curricular work will be given preference.


The duration of work will be ranging from 8 to 12 weeks depending on the willingness of the research assistant.


The research assistantship will be exclusively ONLINE and shall commence as soon as the list of selected students is released.
