About the Organisation

Niti Manthan is an initiative to motivate and inspire young students on various socio-legal themes and to guide them to traverse the righteous path throughout the endeavour of their personal and professional lives. Niti Manthan currently functions in the areas of legal blogs, internships, e-classes, Research centres, certificate courses and lecture series.

About the YL3 Program

Niti Manthan in the pursuit of its vision of creating a legally literate nation, in collaboration with Charaiveti, launches the Young Leaders for Legal Literacy Programme (YL3). The programme aims at collective on-ground public engagement of students turned Legal Leaders to bring about the change they wish to see in the society.

It is a novel initiative with the objective of percolating legal awareness in society. This provides a platform for law students to become Legal leaders to spread legal literacy and truly act as catalysts of change, at and around their law schools. Students who come from law colleges situated in tier-II cities or townships are encouraged to apply.

Novelty of YL3 Program

  • Opportunity to learn the application of laws from a practical perspective.
  • Inculcates an environment of team-work to bring about a change in society.
  • Grants an exposure to on-ground realities of the problems faced by the general public at large.

Broad Tasks

  • A Legal Leader would be required to conduct on-ground public engagement programmes to enhance legal literacy.
  • The period of engagement would be for 4 months ( July 2nd week-October 2nd week).
  • A Legal leader would be required to creatively utilise their resources to the optimal level in impacting the society at large.
  • Each Legal leader has to conduct a minimum of 20 outreach programmes. However, there is no bar on the number of outreach programmes that a Campus Ambassador can conduct within the 4-month tenure.
  • Programmes conducted apart from the required mandate would stand a better position to feature as a part of Top 5 Legal leaders. However, the quality of programmes and impact generation would take prominence over the quantity of programmes conducted.
  • Owing to the COVID-19 social distancing norms, we understand the difficulty in the conduct of on-ground public engagement. As long as the restrictions are in place, virtual legal awareness outreach programmes can be conducted in the form of podcasts, YouTube videos, videos on social media platforms etc.
  • On-ground public engagement programmes with a minimum presence of 10 members can be conducted while the restrictions are in place. Further information regarding the same will be communicated to the selected Legal leaders.

Eligibility

Law and Policy students pursuing any year of study (3 year/5 year programmes) who are interested in on-ground engagement with the public to help percolate legal awareness.

Benefits of Being a Part of YL3 Program

  • Legal leaders get hands-on experience in sharing knowledge and spreading legal literacy and truly act as catalysts of change by contributing their bit to legally literate India
  • Networking opportunities with Legal leaders from other Law colleges who are like-minded passionate individuals who strive for the cause of legal literacy
  • Students get exposed to on-ground realities of the problems faced by the general public at large which helps them in developing social consciousness and a sensitive approach in understanding the interface between law and society
  • Legal leaders can hone their skills of coordination, public speaking, team building, conceptualisation and execution which are critical skills needed for any law student
  • Legal literacy programmes largely fall under the ambit of social work. Undertaking such programmes and initiatives look impressive on L.L.M applications as Universities are looking for compassionate, socially conscious individuals apart from academic credentials.
  • All Legal leaders will be presented with a certificate certifying their contribution to the program.
  • Top 5 Legal leaders which would be determined on the culmination of the 4 months tenure based on the parameters of evaluation of each outreach programme, would be felicitated with cash prize, a letter of recommendation and will be offered opportunities to intern in Delhi.
  • The students who aid the leader to the conduct of such programmes – the Co-leaders (students from legal aid societies, volunteers who help in organising such programmes who belong to other educational backgrounds, etc.) will also receive a certificate from Niti Manthan certifying their contribution.

Application Process

  • The students who are interested in applying to be a part of Young leaders for Legal literacy programme (YL3) would have to register here by 8th July 2020.
  • The applicants have to attach their CV and a Vision document. This Vision document (not exceeding 1000 words) must contain the details of plans that the student has to promote legal literacy in his/her vicinity. The Vision document forms an important component of evaluation for selecting the Legal leaders.
  • Out of the pool of applications, we would be selecting 32 Legal Leaders representing law schools across India.
  • The Vision document would not only be a part of the application process but a crucial component of the subsequent evaluation process of the outreach programmes. The plans stated in the Vision document would be evaluated against each outreach programme conducted by the student.
  • Kindly ensure that you have a clear plan of action and please do mention the skills, resources, potential outreach programme locations and any other details you deem necessary as a part of your Vision document.
