Nyaya Forum for Courtroom Lawyering is a first of its kind student-initiated think-tank devoted to research and advocacy on issues related to litigation and the judiciary as two paths of courtroom lawyering. Our focus on the legal profession is primarily from the vantage point of a student where there are several hindrances in the current context whenever one decides opting to choose careers in courtroom ranging from lack of proper guidance to dearth of connections in the bar, and easy access to opportunities for internships. However we hope to cover the interests of the multiple stakeholders in the system that we identify with through our initiatives and the scholarship we hope to generate.
Our objective is not just to make careers in the judiciary and in litigation practice more attractive but also facilitate making these avenues more feasible and plausible. We aim to do so through our variety of programs. Through the Nyaya Anubhav program we host speakers with an established background in litigation and the judiciary to have conversations around their experience, and have been doing so consistently through the year since our inception. Through our Nyaya Awasar program we hope to facilitate opportunities to work and intern with practitioners and judges. This is backed by our Nyaya Vyavsaya program which seeks to facilitate the building of networks and create career opportunities in litigation. Our Nyaya Vidya program has sought to involve practitioners and judges in the academic process, creating opportunities to learn the practical realities of the law through courses offered by practitioners and judges alike. Finally, our Nyaya Niti program has and will continue to act as a platform to address and opine on matters relating to policy issues in courtrooms.
