While penning down this article, somehow sneaking in from underneath all the memories that we created and the occasions we celebrated, an element of nostalgia strikes hard. If nothing, then leaving the Single Wing alone is a thought that makes coming into Second Year a challenging though. Not that Double Wing is less ‘adventurous’ though, all of us know that the mere ‘aura’ of Double Wing would be entirely different from that of the former. But then, let me have the pleasure of sounding like a philosophic geek- ‘we got tomove on, that is life.’
Anyway, that you are here, we welcome you! Your mind full of unanswered questions and perplexed thoughts about the journey lying ahead, we don’t however, assure it would be so easy. You would have to trample your sight and let your vision win in here. You won’t have to survive this; you would have to win yourself over. Although, you would start incorporating changes in your behavior, in the course of time, you would observe an entire makeover.
The first thing that you should do as soon as you enter inside the college is know what you want to be. Whether you want to establish yourself in the field of litigation, or you want to take up a job in Law firm, or out of the context of law, if you want to go into teaching or Civil Services or anything else, you must be sure about it. Researching more about your ambition and framing out all the logistics clearly must do enough about it.
The First year would treat you rather sympathetically. Law would open up plethora of job opportunities for you in the future and to help you understand the socio-political setup of the country where you would be practicing, subjects of Political Science and Sociology would be introduced where you would be taught the fundamentals. Apart from that, the beautiful field of English Literature would assist you in solidifying your stand on the language. No cards left unturned!
It would be rather difficult for you to scrounge for the firms or advocates taking up novices in the field of Law for internships, but yes, not impossible. With half of the chunk of people betting otherwise, some of them surely do offer you an internship. Obviously, don’t expect a stipend but the internship would teach you many tricks of the trade. You can also take up the online courses on arbitration and mediation. Online courses are not what would keep you going in the future but as for now, they are just more than enough. If you still need to plan things out and request some time, take up internship with an NGO. Apart from giving you more time to think and giving you an opportunity to kindle lives of some young minds, wherever you go later, it would help your employer to know you better that you don’t just take up things for money, you are actually philanthropic. That just sets a right kind of image an employer would want for his workers, so that they don’t knock to give their resignation when the company goes through some financial crisis. You may take up online internships of article writing as well. There are a bunch of new law websites coming up who need interns for penning u the articles in the field of law. Other than honing your expressions, this would benefit you in expanding your knowledge about the topics in law and understanding things better.
You must also be a part of as many co-curricular activities as you can. Take up prospects in managing and organizing committees of the Institute, the Sports activities and various types of committees of the Institute.
So, ladies and gentlemen, that is pretty much an overview of the best and unexplored First Year. Blended with just perfect amount of academic load, you will have a good time enjoying the parties and DJ Nights too. Law is in itself a great thing to be a scholar of, it will take you places. Just let yourselves drift away with the entirely logical and boundless waves of this study, where the horizon is the limit. You will have a good time, trust us; we will make sure that you do.
Wishing you a wonderful time ahead, enjoy!
