It is a common thing for interns to approach Associates in both litigation and corporate departments for work and most likely all of them happen to have some work for you. The advantage of not restricting myself to one Associate or one dept. was getting a variety of work in Companies Act, Customs and Excise, Stamp Act, Taxation Law, Food Safety and Security Act etc.
It was great to work under senior partners and gain knowledge and experience with a great and friendly environment.
The Firm for interns is easy-going and they are never straitjacketed in a particular division. The interns are also asked to draft relatively simple legal documents,research work is also assigned to the interns.
The research work was always time bound and really interesting. Learning is an important aspect of your internship as Associates might give you research notes to prepare on topics they'd like you to know about for your own benefit.
Over period of 4 weeks, I learnt a lot. More than I ever expected to. I researched and collected data regarding all licenses required to open a food storage business in Mumbai, prepared a table for the same, and maintained a table of stamp duties for different types of sale deeds, assignment agreement, master rental agreements and their respective schedules across the country in different states.
To be Honest I was coming with 'hear-say' from my class mates who've interned earlier here that there isn't much work here. But, I was wronged the very first day; just after the basic formalities of filing up the Internship Form and getting a worksheet to be maintained throughout the course of your internship; you are allotted under an Associate/Senior Associate/Partner who will be your mentor.
