About the Internship

Centre for Civil Society’s latest initiative is an endeavour to put India on a more sophisticated path of law-making. Based on an extensive literature review and a study of global best practices, we have developed a checklist that allows us to measure the quality of a given set of laws.

The checklist outlines a set of minimum safeguards (democratic, legal and economic) that any legislation ought to conform to. It draws from indices that measure regulatory quality around the globe, including the World Bank, European Union and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.


In the next three months, we will analyse all 144 state laws on school education using their rubric and are looking for law interns to assist in application. 

The duration of the internship is as follows:

Start Date: 28th October 2020

End Date: 23th December 2020

Apply at jayana@ccs.in or meghna@ccs.in.
