iPleaders is inviting applications from fourth and final year law students (2nd and 3rd year for 3 year course) for a remote Business Law Research Fellowship.


To be eligible to apply, you must fulfil the following criteria: 

  • You should be in your fourth year or final year (in case of 3 year law courses, 2nd or 3rd year).
  • You should have participated in at least one corporate law moot court or any international moot court competition.
  • You should have at least one corporate internship. You must have published at least one article in a law journal or else have published at least 3 blog posts on legal issues.

The fellowship will start on 25th October and extend until 24th March. You can take a total of 30 days break (unpaid) for your exams or any other vacations during the fellowship if required. Those who are interested will have the opportunity to extend the arrangement by two more months. 

Main things you will be involved in

You will be part of some breakthrough research and writing activity around practical aspects of business laws. You will have to produce 12 research articles of 1500 words each per month. It can take 3-6 hours per day, and you are free to manage your time in your own way. 

Expect to enhance your interest and knowledge in business law in a major way, understand deals much better, enhance your ability to perform in an internship and job interviews, write projects much faster and score higher in exams because of the ability to acquire additional knowledge. Those who perform well will also be considered for regular jobs at iPleaders when the arrangement expires. We will also be happy to recommend you if you want to work in big law firms and did well in the fellowship. In our anticipation, those who compete the fellowship are likely to increase their chances of success while working in a law firm or in-house legal department in the future by at least 4 times based on their experience at the fellowship.


Remuneration for the fellows will be INR 5000 per month.
