There is a good team strength.
Through CV and interview
I hail from Jaipur, so I did not need to search for accommodation.
First impression. The first day, formalities etc.
On my first day I was welcomed to the office and introduced to the whole office staff and I was also told to submit a project on any current issue. The infrastructure of the office was nice and comfortable.
Our main task was to assist the advocates working there. We were given particular cases to read and to prepare their briefs. We were also made to do a lot of research-related to the cases. In the court, our major task was to keep an eye on the item numbers and to observe the court proceedings. I also used to get a legal proposition on which I was made to research.
Work environment, people
The work environment in the office was very good as the associates working there were very polite helpful in nature. He was friendly, and he always taught us all the things in a fun and learning way. He was also very helpful and always ready to help.
Best thing during the internship was that I got a chance to meet so many new people in my profession and made many contacts, which is very important in this field and there are so many hangout places near the court, which were really helpful to relax and were the best place to spend time with your new friends.
As such there are no bad things and it was a fun and learning experience. The only bad thing is there is no stipend, but the certificate is really nice.
What did you do to chill?
Hanging out with co-interns.
The biggest lesson of this internship was that there is a lot to learn but one must have that zeal and enthusiasm to learn otherwise no one has time to waste on the people who are not interested. The internship is essential to all the students of Law so that people can have a practical knowledge of the law. What you are not learning in law school that you will learn from Internship and its totally about the practical knowledge which you don’t get in school.
