Why this LLM Mentorship Programme?
Often, students lose out on their opportunity to pursue an LL.M. from several top foreign universities because of not knowing how to draft their CVs or writing their SOPs and LORs. The LL.M. mentorship program by IDIA Kerala aims to resolve this problem by providing students who are wishing to pursue an LL.M. in foreign universities, guidance with their applications. Each student will be assigned a mentor who will help and guide them with their applications and other associated procedures. The mentor will either be a student or alumni of the institution that you’ll be applying to. All mentors are volunteering with IDIA on a pro bono basis.
