First Day

The office is located in Greater Kailash I, New Delhi. One could easily reach there through the metro, nearest station is Kailash Colony about 1.5 km away from the office.

The exact address is pinned on Google Maps: here.

It is quite a new law firm with 2 Partners, 2 Senior Associates and 6-8 associates.

They usually take 2-3 interns per month.

This was my first internship in a law firm and I got a confirmation on a very short notice.

On the very first day I was handed over about 80 odd PW statements, was asked to study them properly and make a brief for them.

Firstly, I thought they were just testing me if I could do that but later on I realised that it was an ongoing matter and quite an important one.

Usually in law firms interns are given a test task in the beginning but here they trusted me with such an important case on my first day of internship.

This incident earned them immense respect from my side.

Main tasks

Since it’s a litigation firm, we were mostly assigned work related to Criminal Laws and Family laws.

I got to work mostly on the procedural laws and I loved it as it was the first time I dwelled on it.

We were also assigned work related to Civil Laws and Personal Laws.

Main tasks were researching on various issues relevant to the ongoing matters.

Some drafting work was also be given to me.

Interns were often required to accompany a lawyer to the court.

It is advisable to seek the help of the associates who assign you work while you’re at your task.

Most of them would make you sit down and explain things and point out your mistakes without being condescending about it.

I was fortunate enough to assist an associate with the drafting of Special Leave Petition (Criminal) and later got a chance to accompany him in briefing of Senior Advocate Mr. Kapil Sibbal for that matter.

Environment

Work environment is friendly and nice.

The associates and senior associates all are very friendly and helpful.

I was never given unreasonable deadlines for the tasks delegated to me.

The associates who delegated the work to me made sure that I knew that I can approach them if I had any doubts or queries.

Basically, they make sure that you have some or the other work to do.

The environment is lively and I can assure, one can never feel bored.

My overall experience at this firm was very good and I would love to intern there again.

Best things

The best part was that the office is situated in GK I area and there are many places nearby to hang out and many food joints where you can have your lunch or can order and have in the office.

Bad things

The office AC is too efficient and it became so cold at times during the day that we had to ask the receptionist or the staff to switch it off.

The internet connectivity is also affected at times due to which you may face trouble in completing the assignments.

Stipend

INR 2000, but can be increased based on your performance.

Biggest Lessons

There are hardly any internships out there like this one, that go beyond mere head knowledge to the more crucial dimension of argument formation and transformation.

I didn’t just learn, I grew more.

The internship with Kred-Jure gave me a better insight of Indian Legal System.

I enjoyed being treated as a colleague & not as a mere intern.

Anything else?

The office has one Cafe Coffee Day machine and hence there is unlimited supply of various types of good quality coffee.

Indeed, during my internship I would take frequent coffee breaks with my co-intern.

The firm does not provide lunch, but the associates made sure that the interns are well fed.

If you are a foodie, don’t give a second thought and associates are really sweet to even pay for whatever you order as they are foodies too.

During my entire internship I don’t remember paying for my lunch or dinner even for once.

Partners frequently treated us at Big Chill and other similar fancy places.
