NILS is an organisation of, by and for law students and young lawyers. We try to provide as many benefits as possible on our part to keep our members happy and in exchange for their contribution towards us.
BUILD CONTACTS WITH LEADING LAWYERS AND YOUNG LEADERS
When you join us and become an active member, you build you contacts with law students with different continents. This gives you an insight into different kinds of legal jurisdictions and builds your international legal network which will certainly come in handy in future when you are a legal professional.
You also make first-hand connections with eminent lawyers and professors, with whom NILS will partner with for its various activities. Needless to say, these connections will take you to many places if used in the right manner.
PUT LEGAL THEORY/KNOWLEDGE INTO PRACTICE
A legal professional can excel only when he gets the right exposure and real-life experience in putting the theory learnt at law school into practice. NILS activities are tailored in a fashion to help its members learn the tricks of the profession which are generally not taught in law school.
We partner with legal professionals who train the members to make the best of their legal knowledge. We have also arranged special workshops for our members to enhance their research skills by learning to use different research tools.
ENHANCE YOUR LEADERSHIP AND COMMUNICATION SKILLS
When you join NILS, you are part of a team which has to undertake a lot of new initiatives and as well as work on projects which are already in place. With every new of edition of all the activities we undertake, we seek to make it better and better. This needs the right leadership and management skills. NILS members learn to work in a team, they learn decision-making and management skills. Most importantly, they develop communication skills, not only with their own members but also such other non-members who participate in our events - and make sure to implement their suggestions in the next event. Such skills are immensely important in your legal profession especially when dealing with clients.
