Its tough to get internship as there is very less openings for interns and they are flooded with interns but the lawyer there Mr. Ahmed Raza is a great and kind person if you insist him in person then he will sure accept it.

I made a call to him and he told me to send my CV to hrln’s email id-: [email protected] and to come and meet.
