First impression, First day formalities, Infrastructure
The first impression of the organisation was really good. On the first day of my internship, a small induction process was done and I was introduced to the members of the law department. A brief description of the main task was also given. The infrastructure is really good. The building is a mixture of tradition and modernity. The building is centrally air-conditioned.
The main task that was appointed to us was to vividly go through the cases; both against and by the company and prepare and submit reports on the same and provide our own views and interpretation.
Work Environment, People
The work environment was fine.
The people were good and shared a healthy relationship with each other. But they maintain their professionalism at the same time.
They provided the interns with separate cubicles which gave enough privacy and better concentration on the task. The members of the department were very friendly provided guidance as and when needed. There was scope of interaction with other students interning there.
Working from 9-5 for 6 days a week felt tiring sometimes. The work was repetitive in nature and felt quite boring at times. No transportation is provided to the interns. The the procedure and formalities right from the beginning to the the end are too many and very complex in nature.
Got the knowledge about the various types of law suit a company faces. Better understanding and interpretation of various cases and the laws applied in it.
