Duration of internship and timings
1st December, 2013 – 30th December, 2013
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
There is a three floor office and all the floors are divided into various areas of work. It is basically a trademark and civil litigation firm. There is a huge library and there is a huge collection of various law books and reporters all over the office. Interns are made to sit on the second floor.
On first day, you are introduced to the team and explained the work that is expected of you.
You are an intern- so read files, read more files, read all the files!
There is no such task given to interns, you can read bare laws, visit court sessions and read as already mentioned read files.
Work environment and people
As such, you are not given any look. Your presence at office during working hours is mandatory but nothing else matters much. People are easily approachable and you can ask for work. But the kind of work given is very basic.
Reading files helps in understanding mechanisms and procedures of the Court. As an intern often I was given tasks to number the annexures and ensure all of them are in place. So you learn what all documents are required in Court and how these are used. You get to see the court culture.
I was not given much work. Most of the times, I read files and nobody asked for what I gained from the files. So it was a kind of tedious and boring Internship.
You realize the importance of reading files only when you are asked to draft those filed by yourselves in later internships, when you are towards the end of your law school. Thus, such internships should not be considered as a waste of time because what you can grab there by reading files and understanding the court language and patterns, you cannot even learn at other places when you are literally told to draft.
Do not consider any internship as big or small, it paves your way to career development in some way or the other.
