How was the Office?

Office was situated near to G.T.B Nagar Metro Station, so travelling was never a problem.

The office area was newly set up in the basement area. It was spacious, with one conference room, reception area, photocopier room, 2 cabins equipped with all necessary Bare Acts, manuals, reference books and separate desk for associate and clerks.

There were individual All-in-one desktops for every associate and clerks. Office has legal information database software like STPL, SCC e.t.c. One can also research from D.L.T, A.I.R Manuals, SCC and other Journals.

There are 4 associates and 1 partner apart from Mr. Chauhan. Two stenographers, two other clerks manage all the office files. They were required to feed all the details in office management software.

First impression, first day, formalities

On first day I was asked to report at the Delhi High Court, where I was asked to observe court proceedings and note down what happened in a particular court proceeding.

First day in High Court was really memorable. I followed him to the court rooms carrying his files.

After the court proceedings interns were required to report at the office for reading files of the cases which were listed next day. There were no formalities as such as everyone knows who will be joining as intern at the beginning of month.

Main tasks

Mr. Chauhan asked me to make rejoinder, applications, notice, and letters. Plenty of drafting work was assigned with research work.

Mr. Chauhan emphasized on quality work. Efforts by the interns were acknowledged by him. There were variety of topics to be researched as there were both criminal as well as civil matters.

Work environment, people

Work environment was friendly. Interns were expected to work and not sit idle. Mr. Chauhan used to ask interns about what work they were assigned and it’s progress. All the associates were friendly.

The best things

Plenty of drafting work. Personally I wanted to learn drafting. I dint want to sit and research in Manupatra or SCC in the whole internship.

Lunch-cum-GDs was the best part. Interns were allowed to have lunch with Mr. Chauhan.

The bad things: None as per my personal experience.

Stipend/month

No

Accommodation etc. What did you to do chill in and around the office and the place of stay?

One can get PG at very reasonable rate in Mukherjee Nagar only. You can order food from many food joints as DU is nearby. We often used to order from Sagar Ratna. Don’t miss special lassi!

  1. Nicely written…

  2. Hi, can you give more details about the kind of work the office is involved in? Original side or appellate? which all courts/forums do they go to?

    • Anonymous says:

      I don’t know what do mean by Original side or Appellate. It depends from case to case. They dealt with all type of cases i.e., civil(Land Revenue, Injunctions e.t.c.) and Criminal(Murder, Rape, Defamation e.t.c.) As far as Courts are concerned, you are required to go to High Court and other lower courts(Tis Hazari, Rohini Court) and Tribunals (C.A.T.,e.t.c.). There is lot of work to do as Mr. Chauhan is standing counsel for DUSIB and other government offices.
