First Day and Infrastructure
9 AM was the reporting time, so I reached around 8:45 AM (safe-play) and just as I entered the office, it was a beautiful and lavish place and I was shown the Interns room (which was very comfortable) to settle and wait. By the time Interns came and we introduced and interacted.
Everyone was very friendly and just then Ms. Raspreet Ma’am (Secretary) entered and apprised us about how to survive in and to make sure we are of some help to the office (pun intended). She is one of the cutest in the office and trust me there are more. She registered our details and made the monthly pass application.
Later all the Interns were called by Sidharth Sir in the conference room for a small informal brief session where he asked us to introduce ourselves. He is Proactive, witty and approachable. He made all the interns comfortable and is a great personality to look up to. And later we were alloted an associate whom we are to assist in our Internship throughout.
A. Mostly, one has to attend matters every day which is encouraged by everyone in the office. Even Sir himself makes sure that every intern is attending court proceedings and hands-down who wouldn’t want to see Sir arguing and presenting in the court. Mostly appointed as an amicus of Supreme court in several cases, you know what I am talking about.
B. Researching is very important in any field either litigation or corporate, So yes research work is a lot yet interesting because he gets intriguing criminal cases. SCC and Manupatra are accessible to every intern in office. Also, the office has a wide range books library which keeps updating.
C. Client-Meetings is one of the most important and vital parts of your internship in this office. Sir actually allows and encourages to attend client meetings so that the interns can accord into researching efficiently and also are aware in its court proceeding. You also have to assist your Associate in the meetings.
The work environment is really very professional and as well as cozy. All the associates are very approachable and friendly. Also, the clerks are evenly friendly and cooperating at the time of need i.e. printer (of course), photocopying, printouts, punching, etc.
There are a lot of client meetings so sometimes the office is flooded with clients so the interns should out of the courtesy, guide and help to settle the clients.
The CCD coffee/tea machine in the kitchen for coffee or whatever to suit yourself and combat the work stress.
I was fortunate to attend a small party which was thrown by Sir in office because it was his anniversary. It was so kind of him to invite the interns himself and made sure everyone in the office had the delights.
I also attended the K.K. Luthra Moot and all the interns were made a part of it too. It was an amazing experience witnessing one of the best moots in the fraternity. It was organized all by Sidharth Sir himself and the family meticulously.
Also, there were almost 20 interns including me and all of us hung out really well so yes I do miss Our Interns Batch (Shoutout).
Only that I had to leave office after my Internship tenure was ended!
It is a very good and unforgettable experience for me at least and a must for those who want to pursue in litigation.
Jangpura or Khan Market are the nearest metro stations to the office and the office is very near to both High Court of Delhi and Supreme Court.
