IDIA

IDIA Charitable Trust (IDIA) and Allen & Overy will collaborate on an internship programme to support IDIA Scholars studying in law schools in India. Pursuant to the collaboration, Allen & Overy will offer a four-week long internship to an IDIA Scholar in the fourth or fifth year of their studies at its Singapore office for the next two years. Allen & Overy will sponsor the IDIA Scholar for the internship and provide mentoring to the Scholar as part of the collaboration.

Internships are an important part of the journey of law students, and this is a valuable learning and development opportunity for IDIA Scholars who come from diverse backgrounds. Unfortunately, IDIA Scholars have often experienced many forms of marginalisation. An internship with a leading global law firm offers them a chance to gain international experience, develop career skills and gather know-how that may otherwise not be accessible to them.

Mr. Shishira Rudrappa, Managing Trustee of IDIA Charitable Trust, said: “We are delighted at being able to collaborate with Allen and Overy. It’s an incredible opportunity for IDIA Scholars to step onto a global platform for new and exciting workplace, cultural and living experiences.

Sheila Ahuja and Pallavi Gopinath Aney, joint Chairs of Allen & Overy’s India group, commented: We are really pleased to be able to collaborate with IDIA on this important internship programme. At A&O we strive to be open, accessible and inclusive and we understand that we have a key role to play in creating and offering opportunities in the legal profession. Programmes like this offer valuable learning opportunities to students and we are very much looking forward to welcoming the scholars.

Both organisations hope to develop a mutually beneficial collaboration in the years to come. IDIA is continually and actively seeking more opportunities to help its Scholars develop into CHAMPS (Creative, Holistic, Altruistic, Moral/Maverick, Problem Solvers) through its Scholar Development Programme, which includes mentorship, training, internship support and many other activities.
