The IDIA West Bengal Chapter, in association with Media Partners SCC Online and EBC and Knowledge Partners Legal Edge, is organising a two-day Online Legal Workshop on 28 and 29 January, 2023.
These sessions will be taken by NUJS alumni who have achieved immensely in their respective fields, and are currently serving as Associates and Partners in India's top law firms, AOR in the Supreme Court, or cleared Judicial Services Examination, or pursuing higher studies from the world's best institutes.
The Workshop is being conducted to help the participants improve their skills in various activities in law school that are part and parcel of law school life. Additionally, the sessions will also be focused on careers after law school.
The Workshop contains 8 sessions, and the following is the schedule for the Workshop:
Day 1: Activities in Law School [11 AM – 5 PM]

VIII) Session on a career in Judiciary by Anubhab Sarkar (Cleared WB Judicial Services Exam, awaiting appointment)
The IDIA-West Bengal Chapter has been involved in organizing such events in the past too, as these sessions provide a great opportunity for students who plan to enter law schools and existing students of law to understand various aspects of life at law school.
These sessions are taken by experienced people which helps the students to deconstruct what it takes to thrive in law school – while still giving them space to chart their own path.
In addition to being a workshop that helps students in improving their skills related to extra-curricular activities which are undertaken in the law school, the said event also serves the purpose of helping underprivileged children who are interested in the field of law as all the amount raised by the event is utilized by IDIA Central team to fund the various expenses incurred in training and development of IDIA Scholars/Trainees.
The registered participants who attend all the sessions of the event shall receive an official certificate of participation from IDIA.
