Visakhapatnam: For the first time in the history of Andhra University (AU), 27 final year law students grabbed the opportunity to intern with the state government. They are currently working with the tax wing of Visakhapatnam district.
The university is also working on another proposal to place 10 more students as interns with the face police station. According to university officials, internships will help students gain hands-on, hands-on experience in the field.
Speaking to YOU, AU Registrar Professor V Krishna Mohan said the 27 students will assist the Visakhapatnam district administration with legal status on issues relating to land disputes and policies based on previous judgments and statutes.
“That way they can understand how laws can be applied and dealt with to solve a problem. This will give them exposure to the litigation process and an understanding of the laws and amendments. For example, if a land dispute arises, the trainees should study previous judgments and legal status in similar cases and provide their inputs to officials to help them resolve the dispute,” Krishna Mohan said.
The Registrar added that the 27 trainees are currently working at the Visakhapatnam Collector and the three divisional revenue offices in the district. “They will receive a travel allowance and an allowance. The internship for the 27 students started on July 23,” said Krishna Mohan.
UA Placement Officer V Ramalingeswara Reddy said the university also provides a judicial training program for law students to work under judges as trainees. “Several multinationals, pharmaceutical companies and industries are making several requests to provide internships for students of various AU courses. It takes a lot of people for the manufacturing sector. The basic sector has once again become the priority area,” Reddy said.
