Issued in public interest: We’ve received information that interns at this office have allegedly faced sexual harassment. Students/graduates are advised NOT to apply to this place.

Details: We have received 3 comments on the website alleging sexual harassment by Mr. Suneet Kumar Gupta. Out of the 3, we have spoken with 2 interns and confirmed the same. We also spoke with one other female intern. We have also gone through evidence sent by 2 lawyers (with whom the students subsequently interned after they left Suneet Kumar Gupta’s office) which is highly disturbing and confirms sexual harassment. 

We are grateful to the lawyers and the interns for bringing this to our attention. Lawctopus is a website for law students and young lawyers and is read by nearly 2.5 lakh readers every month. It’s our duty to warn law students and young lawyers against interning or working at such unsafe places.

First impression, First day formalities, infrastructure

Firstly, I met to Suneet sir then he introduced me to the associate-in-charge of the interns, Mr Sunil Prasad, Advocate, who welcomed me and his Associate Adv. Ashutosh Jha. I met with other associates working with Suneet sir. I was asked to submit a couple of passport-size photos of mine, photocopy of id card and Aadhar card.

Thereafter, I was made to sit with other interns, with whom I spent most of the time during the course of my internship. Visited Various courts of Delhi. I then went to court with sir for a case and then a research work was given by sir.

Main tasks

Main tasks are to visit various courts of Delhi for hearing and after completion of that one has to brief about the case. Every intern is supposed to make daily details of work done by him/her.

Work environment and people

The work environment is really positive and that’s because of sir which makes the interns feel good about coming to work. The staff is nice and kind and the associates are very humble and friendly. You will even get the opportunities to appear before the court.

Suneet Sir and associates are always ready and willing to help interns in their work. They also sometimes have fun with interns and tend to make the atmosphere light and comfortable and sometimes serious discussion about the laws also take place.

Best things

Apart from the positives that have been discussed so far, interns get to have a chance to express their views about any related case in the chamber, during which sir tends to discuss case details as well as political and current issues.

Suneet Sir is very punctual himself so it is not advisable to get LATE.

Bad things

There are no bad things as such.

Biggest Lessons

You will get to know the basic working of the district courts and practical knowledge of litigation is also truly important.

Internships can be a lot of fun, so relax, get to know the new people around you and enjoy yourself!

  1. I feel ashamed to write this comment here. I have interned under this advocate previously. Now when I look back. I feel that I was so naive back then. I had experienced some serious sexual harrasment there and had to end my internship right there only. It’s been a long time and it’s still the same traumatizing experience but now I have made peace with it and have learnt my lessons. I am writing this comment after a long time because today I was going through this post and reading all these three comments on this post. I personally know them who have posted these ‘good’ comments and felt bad for them or maybe victims like me? It feels like people are ridiculing your trauma. These persons have themselves seen and heard few instances directly from some victims including me. After issuance of the Lawctopus warning, this advocate literally begged for his interns to write good reviews and comments in his favour on Lawctopus.
    The 3 good comments on this post is just the reaction of their interaction with this advocate. One of the co interns even called me to tell how happy all of them are that truth is exposing. But today is the day for me to wonder is there a need for legal interns to suppress themselves to this extent?
    This makes you fall in the same category when students being ABSOLUTELY aware of what happens there, recommend others to apply there and get harassed and what not
    I choose to be anonymous.

    I interned under Adv Suneet K Gupta from the period 4th of Jan to 30th Jan.
    The interns observed proceedings of the court discussed the cases with sir and also learned how to frame arguments and research on the cases.
    The internship provided an opportunity to learn new things and it stimulated in learning the procedure of the court with research which were used in the case.

  3. A very great opportunity to work as an intern ….working under him was a good experience and most importantly you will learn the discipline …here I also got to know many different things which I have not experienced before and I suggest students to work with adv. Suneet Gupta ,you will enjoy alot as well as gain knowledge in areas of criminal and civil cases …..to apply send your CV at suneetguptaadv@gmail.com

  4. For internship mail your CV at suneetguptaadv@gmail.com.
    It was a great experience interning under Suneet sir. Gained practical knowledge and gained experience in how to handle clients. Interning under Suneet sir will help you in learning court procedures and drafting of various criminal and civil petitions. Interning under him requires you to be punctual. Internship incharge Adv Sunil Prasad is really of great help during the course of internship.
