Isha Kanth, a student from Delhi, has been selected for the prestigious two-month internship at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) at The Hague. Only two law students from across the world get selected for this internship.
Currently, Isha, 20, is a final year student of law and is pursuing her studies from Queen Mary University in London. She studied in Sanskriti School in Delhi and scored about 97 per cent marks in Class12 in the Humanities stream.
After completing her LLB, Isha would pursue her post-graduation studies abroad. She would then like to return to India and work for the unorganised sector. Her hobbies include listening to music, reading and travelling.
The prestigious ICJ offers internships of one to three months to students and young professionals who are in the early stages of their careers. The internship is an opportunity for these students to put their knowledge and experience into practice while performing certain tasks for the Court under the supervision of Registry officials.
The ICJ, popularly known as the World Court, is internationally noted for its role in upholding the rule of law in the international community and for its contributions towards the settlement of disputes between States among other assignments.
