Legal Interns and Small Change in India

June 7, 2010

As many of our readers know, I used to be at Indiana University Maurer School of Law in Bloomington, and our fearless intern Priyanka is still there, preparing for med school.  I was delighted to read about the law school’s new Stewart Fellowships to give students legal experience in India:

Six students at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law have been selected for summer internships in India as Milton Stewart Fellows in the law school’s Center on the Global Legal Profession. This unique program offers students experiences in a variety of settings, including highly reputed law firms; rights-based, non-governmental organizations; and the Indian Solicitor General’s Office.

From SAPP’s perspective, it was particularly great to see Professor Jayanth Krishnan note in Legally India that “contributions from the alumni, the university foundation and the Indian community had helped generate funds for this programme, which cover airfare and accommodation in India.”  Several of the Stewart Fellows will be placed with NGO’s like Jagori and Self Employed Women’s Association (SEWA).  I’m sure it’s a win-win on all sides!

I also wanted to note for our readers in India that McGraw-Hill has just published an Indian edition of our friend Michael Edwards’ book “Small Change: Why Business Won’t Save the World”  – you might remember our insightful Q&A with Michael here.
