The biggest lesson to every person who is pursuing law as their dream is that you have to work hard to get success. At Labor Court Kanpur I learned legal drafting which included the drafting of the plaint and legal report.
NAME, COLLEGE, YEAR OF STUDY
Akshita Shukla, Student of Indore Institute of Law, 2nd year.
NAME OF THE ORGANIZATION AND ADDRESS
Labor Court, Udyog Nagar, Kanpur under the guidance of Adv. Vishnu Shukla.
DURATION OF THE INTERNSHIP
It was of one month from 8 October to 8 November 2017.
HOW BIG WAS THE OFFICE? TEAM STRENGTH
The office was spacious enough although it was at the residence of the lawyer. There were three more interns with me.
APPLICATION PROCEDURE, INTERNSHIP CONTACT DETAILS
I approached the concerned advocate and submitted my Resume. He asked me few questions related to research work and then I was given this internship.
ACCOMMODATION: HOW, WHERE?
My relative’s house was near to the office and I stayed there. So it hardly took 10 minutes to reach the office.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS, FIRST DAY, FORMALITIES ETC
The first impression was all good as I reached on time and in a proper formal wear. Firstly the trainer briefed us about the court manners. He also explained few things about the proceedings.
Case study and explanation of the case both written and oral was the main task. I learned legal drafting which included drafting of a plaint and legal report. I also did research on many topics in order to complete the assigned works.
WORK ENVIRONMENT, PEOPLE
All the people were cooperative and ready to help and there was a friendly working environment. My advocate was very supportive, whenever I committed a mistake, he simply corrected me with an explanation.
I actually learned a lot as it was my first internship. I was given many cases to study, and I was queried by my trainer which made me nervous. But later it generated confidence in me. My fear for communication got over after that internship. I actually gained a lot of experience.
I don’t think anything was worst in the internship but here I would like to mention about the court proceedings which were delayed – due to leniency.
WHAT DID YOU DO TO CHILL?
My co-interns were seniors so they had many internship stories to share with me, and sometimes I used to ask my trainer about his work experience as an advocate, etc.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO TELL
Internships are very important in the field of law, so every student who is passionate about law should do internships whenever he/she can.
The biggest lesson learned was that you have to work very hard to get success. This is a profession which requires a person to be more disciplined. Utmost dedication and honesty are the skills by which a person has to work in this field to be successful.
