Method of landing the internship

Firstly you need to jot down a nice and proper Cover Letter.

Next step is you need to prepare a mail along with your C.V. and Cover Letter attached and send it to [email protected]

Ms. Rajni Divkar is the H.R. Managing authority of the firm

It would be beneficial if you send your mail to the H.R. 3 to 4 months before the actual commencement of your internship period so that the slots are not already filled up before your C.V. pokes in.

First Day of the Internship

Well talking about the first day, it was pretty new environment as it was my first law firm internship experience.

The receptionist will let you wait at the reception for some time till you are being directed about the firm.

Then you will enter the office area of the firm which looks quite alluring as it offers you a view of typical old age firms.

Afterwards, you would be taken to the specific area where interns work and later you would be directed about the rules and regulations of the firm by Mr. Viraj Khatlawala.

Work Assigned

In the first week you won’t be assigned with much work so that you could understand and observe the work culture of the firm.

In the second week you will be assigned your true work based on your performance in the first week of your internship.

If you have performed well in your first week then you would be assigned to a senior associate who will provide you a lot of quality work and will also let you assist him/her in the court visits.

But if your performance in the first week was not up to the mark then you will be assigned low quality work like research, making a case note etc.

Timings of the office
