Hi

I'm an Australian qualified lawyer with some human rights experience. I would love to volunteer in India for up to six months, preferably Northern states, and would appreciate suggestions.

Thanks

Maddie

Hi Maddie,

I am going to assume you want to volunteer as a lawyer.

Basics first - you need an Employment Visa to legally volunteer in India.

Secondly - you could expect the Indian Government to be less than enthusiastic about throwing open the doors to a human rights lawyer.

With that as your groundwork, you need to consider if you are going to pay to volunteer; or if you are looking to volunteer at "no cost".

Who to consider:

Lawyers Without Borders

International Bridges to Justice
http://www.ibj.org/India.html

Human Rights Law Network
http://www.hrln.org/hrln/

And then of course, organisations like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch

http://www.hrw.org/asia/india


Those aside, have a trawl though:

Hope this helps.
Gone.
