    I, Harsh Verma, am a 2nd year student pursuing BBA L.Lb (Hons.) at National Law University, Jodhpur.
    I was an intern at chambers of Rajendra Chhabra for the month of June (4 weeks). Interning at the chambers of Mr. Rajendra Chhabra was an enriching experience as I got to learn about various aspects of law. All interns were given proper work and no one in the office used to sit idle as there were loads of cases to be dealt with. In the course of 4 weeks, I have researched, drafted, visited courts for various purposes and witnesses court proceedings. There was never any shortage of work and we could always ask for something new to work on when done with the previous task. As an intern, we were usually directed to report to High Court or Tis Hazari Court at 10 a.m. and then at 4 p.m., we had to report at the office of Mr. Rajendra Chhabra located in Moti Nagar.
    Mr. Rajendra Chhabra has a very practical approach towards the training of his interns. He always emphasized more on practical knowledge of the subject and functioning of law.
    Overall, it was a great experience for me. I would recommend this internship to anyone who is interested in criminal law or in learning more about the practical aspect of law.

    I am Chetna Vig persuing 2nd year at Amity Law School Delhi IP University
    I had the privilege of working as an intern with Advocate Rajender Chhabra

    Starting with the environment of the work place i think however high profile lawyers or advocates one might work under, the experience of such a proffesional environment along with it being equally friendly and comfortable is very rare to find.
    I would really like to thank Chhabra Sir and his associate Jay Sir for this.

    Secondly, Chhabra Sir is a man with so much knowledge,experience and expertise in the field but is equally down to earth and always ready to help.
    Im highly greatful to Chhabra sir and Jay sir for making themselves always available to solve any doubts and help in any manner possible..

    As an intern one expects to gain hands on experience and thats what you find by working with Advocate Chhabra. Court visits along with visits to the police station and client meetings are amongst the various visits that one will experience while working with Sir.

    Highly greatful to Chhabra Sir and Jay sir. It has been a great learning experience. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

    If any law student having intrest in criminal litigation than Delhi Legal Cell is the best place for internship for them.
    I have been an intern for the month of June (1st june, 2016 to 30th june, 2016) under the guidance of Mr. Rajender Chhabra Sir and Mr. Jai Tayade sir. In these days I have experienced a lot about drafting quashing reports and written statements, the court proceedings, the filling process and and examination of accused. Delhi Legal Cell also helps me to understand the strengths and weakness of Judicial system, the working of the police as well as other investigation officers. Apart from all the learning experience I also got to collect amazing memories, working with Rajender Sir and Jai Sir was similar to as working with a colleague. Their immense support and guidance made this experience more memorable. According to me if one is looking Forward to exposure then Delhi Legal Cell is the best place for him. This was one of my best internship till date.

    INTERNSHIP AT CHAMBERS OF RAJENDER CHHABRA
    (DELHI LEGAL CELL)

    My Experience (summer internship)
    I, Akansh Mittal am a 2nd year student pursuing B.A. L.L.B. (Hons.) at Institute of Law Nirma University Ahmedabad, Gujarat.

    This is the best internship I have done till date for the reason that the knowledge, I could pick up from working here will be of extraordinary help in building my carrier as a lawyer.
    Before this internship I have done around 4 internship but I was not able to gain this level of practical knowledge about the basics related to become a Lawyer. In this internship I was able to learn drafting of various application for bail, parole, legal notices etc. I was also able to learn drafting of CMM and filing it as well in the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi.
    On the first day I was directly called to the Delhi high-court and was told to observe a case argument which was the first case I heard in this internship and it gives me extreme happiness to share my experience, that the level of argument and the approach to put the defence by Adv. Rajender Chhabra Sir was so unique in itself that we were able to won the case .
    After the court hours I needed to report to the workplace and was told to do the pending work and the work related to the cases that are assigned on next date. The best thing about this Internship was that both Rajender sir and Jay sir was there to bail us out and they will show you the correct way at each point and I got the opportunity to learn numerous things from them. Some of the time I got admonished on our mistakes yet from those slip-ups I took in a great deal.
    One of the best thing in this office was that the lively discussion that happen every day while travelling from court to office and after the office work we discuss the law points and the best portion of this discussion was that our conclusion was additionally considered, acknowledged and appreciated.
    It was my good fortune because Rajender Sir is the panel Advocate of DELHI High Court Legal Service Committee, so I got the chance to be the part of the video conferencing with Tihar Jail inmates as it was the experience everyone will not get.
    The work I got mainly was to draft petitions, applications and legal notices. From which I got to learn many things. This was the best internship I did though the work load was much more then what I expected but this was the best work experience I have ever had.
    So in conclusion this is an internship every law student should do because one can gather complete practical knowledge of criminal litigation and every little aspect of a court that no other lawyer will bother to teach you.

    I, Naman Khatwani am a 2nd year student pursuing B.A/B.Sc L.L.B (Hons.) at West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata. My internship here at Delhi Legal cell with Advocate Mr. Rajender Chhabra has been a very enterprising and learning experience for me. Besides learning how to draft various types of petitions and researching on multiple aspects of law, I also gained a substantial amount of practical knowledge with regards to litigation. Specializing in criminal litigation, interning here has enriched me with information on how a trial works from the filing of the petition to the judgement on the same.

    As an intern, I was directed to report to either Tis Hazari Courts or the High Court at 10:00 am where multiple cases were listed for the same day. In the Courts I learned every practical aspect of litigation at all stages. Having several cases listed on the same day, interns were usually required to ask for adjournments or pass-overs in other cases. Following that, we observed Court proceedings, where we had the privilege of watching Sir’s argument or cross examination of prosecution witnesses. A great thing about the same was that Sir, left no stone unturned in a case, and tried to win his client’s case at every stage of the trial. Watching Sir’s argument in itself was a highly knowledgeable treat and we got to learn a lot about how to present a case immaterial of its strength. We also performed other duties like moving applications of all types to inspect files, file the Process fee form, and other requirements for the office like filling for the certified copies of a document required. The associate in the office, Mr. Mrutunjay sir enriched my internship here, as he has taught me various practical aspects of litigation and ensured that I was working in the right direction.

    After dealing with all the cases in the Court, I was required to report back to the office, where we would prepare for the upcoming cases. In the office, I drafted various applications and petitions which ranged from civil complaint cases to Criminal Writ petitions. These petitions included multiple types of criminal reliefs like appeal against conviction, parole, bail, furlough, and applications to ensure judicious trial in the Trial Court itself. I also helped to file E-FIRs and letters/ complainants to governmental bodies like the police, RWA and the MCD. The civil petitions included cheque bouncing cases to Civil petitions in the High Court and the work was exhaustive in nature. A main task of drafting petitions also included researching on statues and case laws to apply them effectively. I also prepared written synopsis for cases which helps in giving the Court a brief outlook on our case and assists in arguments as well. Mrutunjay sir had entrusted me with a lot of responsibilities which ensured that I also comprehended the practical aspects of litigation.

    There also used to be a lively discussion on the point of law everyday. The interns along with Sir debated on various statues and case laws with everyone allowed to present their opinion and heard peacefully. Often, Recurring and new events were discussed and this lead to an enlightening session with everyone having their say on the topic and hearing different insights. With Sir, being a Legal aid Counsel on the panel of High Court as well as District Court, I also got the chance to observe sir giving legal advice to various clients in the DHLSC for free. This was not only a learning experience but with Sir involving us to understand how to deal with clients and give them sound advice and help them was in itself very heart-warming.

    The work environment in the office is very comfortable but professional. We not only are expected to research on cases but also understand how to deal with clients and various other problems and instances in litigation. However, my internship was not limited to Court visits and the office but also included video conferencing with Jail inmates, police station visits, Legal Aid Counselling, Client and Witness visits, and meeting the JM of a district. I was also given the opportunity to address the college students through a programme conducted by Delhi State Legal Service Committee , on certain legal issues and make them aware of their legal and constitutional rights which in itself was self boosting task.

    However, the thing I’ll take away most from this internship is the practical knowledge that I’ve afforded. Being a frequent visitor of the Court, I learnt the different aspects in litigation. An incident that I’ll cherish from this month was when we had multiple matters listed before the Hon’ble High Court. Sir was busy in arguing the murder case before of a division bench, and I was asked to request the Hon’ble Justice Siddhart Mridul to pass over the matter, as Sir was busy. Appearing before the Hon’ble Justice, he struck a light hearted- conversation with me. On finding out that I was an intern and making a request to Passover the matter, he asked me to argue the case which was on quashing of an FIR. I responded by telling the Hon’ble Judge that I did not have the file of the case and hence, I couldn’t argue. Hon’ble Justice Mridul then adjourned the matter to a date 3 weeks from the day and instructed me to appear before the Court on that day to argue the same matter. This was a very inspirational as well as joyful incident for me, as it further motivates me to go into litigation, and I’ll remember the same for years to come.

    Hence, what I would convey from my above experience would be that this is the place where one can gather complete practical knowledge of criminal litigation and also learn about drafting various types of applications and petitions. Besides learning academically, I’ve also gained a lot of experience and information which will definitely help me in the years to come.

    I Sonali Gupta student of 3rd Indore Institute of Law, Indore. I interned in Delhi Legal Cell for a period of 15 days under the guidance of Sir Rajender Chhabra . An application for internship can be sent to [email protected] if one wants to explore his skills in Criminal Litigation
    In these 15 days I got to learn lot about the criminal proceedings and the practical aspect of criminal litigation. The exotic manner of examining and cross-examining the witness. The preparation of defense for the bail application. Lodging of an FIR, analysis of the charge sheet and framing of charge etc. I also got an opportunity to witness the counseling of the aggrieved party visiting the Delhi Legal Aid Panel for Legal advice. Filling for the certified copies. Preparation of petition for Parole etc. Apart from these I also got a chance to attend the Video Conferencing conducted to interact with the prisoners of Tihar Jail and their respective Advocates through which under the instruction of sir, I informed a prisoner about the current status of their case. Here one gets maximum exposure to sharpen their advocacy skills by seeing the excellent manner in which Sir Rajender Chhabra argues in the court with his extra vigilant command over Law and the exemplary quality of convincing the judge with his opinion.
    After being free from the Court we use to move for the office work. Here we prepared for the cases listed for the next day. It is here that we explore our research and drafting skills. Apart from the cases Sir use to discuss various topics of legal importance which gave us better knowledge of our profession like dowry death, abatement to suicide, death penalty etc. We were put under the guidance of Mritunjay Sir who was a great mentor as well as a very cooperative person. He holds a good knowledge of law and advices you in every possible manner. It’s because of him that we could manage with the procedural laws easily and understand criminal litigation in a better way.
    Apart from the usual court and the office work I also got an opportunity to participate in many legal awareness programs conducted by our councils in order to spread legal awareness in the society at large. We visited some schools and colleges where Sir (Rajender Chhabra) spoke about topics such as Gender Sensitivity, Protection of Children from Sexual Offences, Child Labour, Human Trafficking and so on. We prepared various Questionnaires in order to contribute to this social cause.
    To conclude I would simply say, “Looking for best exposure? Join the Delhi legal cell under guidance of Sir Rajender Chhabra”

  13. Delhi Legal Cell mostly takes up legal aid cases,if one has to build up command over criminal litigation DLC is the best place for exposure. I have been a intern at DLC for one month, from here i have gathered immense knowledge about court proceedings, cross examination, how to put forward your arguments and many more things. I have regularly visited the court. In short it was a wonderful experience working at DLC. I express my gratitude to Sir Rajender Chhabra for providing me the opportunity to explore the law field and for being a constant source of inspiration.

    I must say out of my previous five internships where I was confined to research work only, this internship at DLC provided me a new vision to what actual litigation is all about.

  16. so there is no use sending my cv to this id ?

  17. Rishabh Gupta says:

    Is this a registered NGO ?

    • administrator says:

      It might not be.

      There are many unregistered companies/NGOs which are good and have good internship programs. Many of the ‘registered’ ones don’t. It’s advisable to do a little independent research before deciding to invest a month and 15-20k rupees (that’s what an average internship takes from you).
