Internship @ Anand and Anand, Noida: Learning the Beyond-Textbooks Trademarks

Name. College. Year of Study

Awanika Anand , I.L.S Law College, Pune. I interned in my 4th year of Law School.

Name of the organisation. City

Anand and Anand Advocates, Noida

Application procedure. Internship contact details

One can send an email to [email protected] (the HR). In order to acquire this internship, one needs to apply well in advance and also pursue the application thoroughly by calling them.

They receive the applications positively and give proper response in a time bound manner.

Duration in weeks. No. of days/week. Timings

Five Days a week for a duration of one month.

They were very particular about the timings as we were supposed to be reporting at office strictly by 9:30 a.m. All interns used to leave usually by 6:30 p.m; however, if required, we were also asked to stay back sometimes.

We were provided with conveyance facilities for such days.

Accommodation: how, where, how was it?

I looked around for P.G.s near Noida Sector 16, however, they were quiet disappointing. I ended up travelling all the way from Gurgaon where my relatives stay which was a tedious task in itself (thank God for the Delhi metro!)

First impression. First day, formalities etc.

The office building of Anand and Anand, Noida is beautiful! On our first day we were made to sit in the main conference room of the office where we were required to fill forms giving out our details.

Along with that we were also made to sign waiver forms wherein we affirmed not to divulge crucial details regarding the work we were given. Thereafter, we were taken to the intern room where every intern was provided with a computer.

Main tasks:

Each intern was assigned to a Department Head or a Senior Associate of the firm. I was assigned under Mr. Safir Anand, HOD Trademarks.

I was mainly given research work on various interesting matters relating to Trademarks. The matters I was involved in were related to brands that were not even heard of in India before. It revealed a wider spectrum of aspects that are involved with marketing a Brand Name. This was definitely the sort of learning we look for which goes beyond our textbooks.

Apart from the Partner or Associate we were assigned to, we were free to take work from anyone else in the firm if required or at our own initiative. However, during the period when I was interning there were 20 interns at the same time, due to which getting work was like a war.

Work environment, people

The work environment is amazing! Ms. Sangeeta is a lovely lady. She was our assigned supervisor and would keep the discipline going.

It is easy to approach anybody working in the firm. However, Mr. Safir Anand being a partner, was usually very busy with meetings and so it was very difficult to make submissions to him and get his feedback.

Best things?

The tag! Anand and Anand works very well on the C.V.

Apart from that, the vending machine was a life saver! Not to forget the variety of cheap and tasty food available both inside the office and outside. The best part of the internship was the awesome tea we used to get 3 times a day!

Bad things:

There were too many interns which was in contravention to their policy of taking only 5 interns at a time.

Stipend/ month : Rs 1,500/- for a month.

Biggest lessons : Stay closer to office.
