First impression, First-day formalities
My first day started with a brief introduction followed by a small meeting with the senior lawyers working in that chamber. Thereafter, I was made to sit with other interns, with whom I spent most of the time during the course of my internship. I then went and introduced myself to the other associates as well, who gave me my first research work then and there itself. It was an experience which was quite anti-orthodox Internship experiences.
One has to approach the associates to get work. Every intern is supposed to make daily details of work done by him/her. Researching on various civil and criminal aspects of law, making case summaries and case briefs was the part of daily tasks given by the senior advocates. Apart from the research work, I also attended the court proceedings, where I got the opportunity to see Rawal Sir argue.
Work environment and people
The work environment is really positive and makes the intern feel good about coming to work. The staff are nice and the associates are very humble and friendly.
The associates are always ready and willing to help interns in their work. They also sometimes have fun with interns and tend to make the atmosphere light, yet healthy.
Apart from the positives that have been discussed so far, interns get to have the chance to express their views about any related case in the chamber, during which sir tends to discuss case details as well as political and current issues.
There were no bad things as such. I just felt the major part of the duration in which I interned had court vacations as well as the days when the work got suspended due to some reason.
Work harder in order to achieve success throughout life. Internships can be a lot of fun, so relax, get to know the new people around you and enjoy yourself!
