    When will applicants to the Legal Fellowship hear back about the status of their applications? Will an interview round be conducted?

    Looking at the gravity of work CSJ and its members are doing for the betterment of Females, which is the need of the present time. For the same, i want to contribute my part to it but I am not yet eligible for the Fellowship program as I am in 4th year of my Law UG. Kindly, tell me if there are any slots available for the legal interns.

    Dear Sanyukta,

    Thank you for your interest in employment with Counsel to Secure Justice. Yes, you are eligible to apply for the CSJ Fellowship Programme since you are registered with the Delhi Bar Council. However, if hired you’ll be required to clear the All India Bar Examination.

    Hope this answers your query.

    Best regards,
    Richa Bedi

    Dear Richa,
    This looks like a really promising initiative! I was going through the list of requirements and I had a query regarding the Bar Council Registration – I was wondering if that condition is mandatory or negotiable. In my case although I have a Master’s degree and I just registered with the Delhi Bar Council, my AIBE is due on 13th December. So… would I be eligible to apply?
    I look forward to your reply.
    Warm Regards
    Sanyukta.

    Dear Sia,

    Thank you for your interest in the CSJ Fellowship Programme. We do have a strong employee protection policy wherein cabs are provided to lawyers visiting the police station at night. Moreover, we ensure that there are always two employees present during such visits.

    Hope this addresses your concern.

    Best regards,
    Richa Bedi

    Hello,
    This looks like a really interesting position (and a wonderful opportunity for budding lawyers who want to help make a difference). However, I have a slight concern. I don’t own a car and am therefore not mobile, so I need to know whether your security protocols extend to affording protection to women who will have to rely on public transport in order to respond to sexual violence cases at the police station late at night, or if we are disqualified as unsuitable candidates. Not trying to sound belligerent here, but it would be nice to know if I, and others in my position, would be wasting our time seeking this fellowship.

    Hi Amit…thanks for your interest in the CSJ Fellowship programme. The application process is ongoing.

    Hello
    Looking at the old comments has raise suspicion in my mind that the application process has ended. After reading the work profile, i have been spending sleepless nights thinking about the perfect job for an Activist minded lawyer, Please don’t tell me that i am keeping my fingers crossed for nothing..So can some one please tell whether the application process is still ongoing or this is website is just not updated?

    A candidate qualifies to apply for the Legal Fellow position with CSJ if he has a Bachelors degree in Law and is registered with the Bar Council of India.
  • commented 2014-11-22 21:18:16 +0530
    Requirement for CSJ Legal Fellowship is a Bachelor of Laws degree. Will the students, who are in final year of their LLB course and interested in public lawyering, be considered for the fellowship?

    To Apur,
    Thank you for your concern. I work as a Legal Fellow at CSJ. Safety is a priority of our organisation regardless of an employee’s gender. We have a safety and security protocol in place which we share with incoming employees. For security reason, we don’t advertise the protocols in public forum. The concern for safety extends to numerous professions; that should not deter us to fight for justice for the vulnerable.
    I hope this clarifies your query. Thank you for visiting the site.
    We look forward to interacting with you again
    Warm Regards,
    PG.

    You “.. help clients (the survivors of sexual violence) secure rights and protections required by law when … testify at trial..”, well, how you/CSJ, as an employer, protect, ensure protection to the FELLOWS you hire – especially the young women candidates, who constantly invite threats to life while working with and for CSJ clients – as Legal Fellowship..?

    Knowing the prevalent condition – the time that we all are passing through, what made you decide, what made you comfortable – from safety & security point, to invite the subject Fellowship applications from young women advocates; or, not limit this programe to males only? The CSJ’s work, efforts are indeed noble and are in much need today than ever before. The young lady law professionals – being without a decent work assignment yet, are emotional and enthusiastic (of course, impatient, or, lack the required level of patience, experience of the Life) aspiring to get into the Fellowship prgoram.

    The problem that you are fighting for, should not boomerang back on us, on the young Fellows ..

    Kindly revert

    Best Regards
