Duration of internship, Timings
3 weeks [1 December-22December] 2018 winter internship. He is strict with his office timings. Timings were 10:30 am – 5 pm.
I joined his office on 1 December, all in formals. The office is of medium size and is on the first floor. He has shifted his office recently from the second floor to the first floor. He already had two laptops so we were not asked to bring ours. Our lunchtime was from 1:30 to 2:30 pm.
On my very first day, I was asked to wait in his cabin as he had some work. After some time he came and we talked. He is a very calm person. Then slowly he introduced me to everyone. I have to say I was the youngest over there. Everyone greeted me warmly and further explained to me what I was supposed to do as an intern and what tasks were to be completed.
On that day itself, I was taken to civil courts first where he had 4 matters and I saw him arguing. Then we came back and had our lunch where we had a pizza party on the first day itself. My first day was slow as I was not assigned much work.
From next day we started going to high court where he had his matters. We were 7 interns and we all used to sit and note down the proceedings. He taught us how to make written statements, how cases went on, how an advocate should argue, how to present yourself in court and much more.
He mainly asked me to help him in litigation and non-litigation department. In the litigation department, I was able to gain knowledge regarding work in various courts and tribunals. I was asked to complete all my assignments latest by 21 December. I got drafting work here which was fun. We used to do this on his laptop where he would allot to each one of us a single brief and then we were supposed to draft on his laptop.
Court visits were fun. He never scolded any one of us and taught everything in a very positive way. Altogether I was lucky enough to have him as my first boss, you rarely get a boss with a calm mind. I was even blessed with good co-interns. As from my point of view, there was nothing negative. On the last day, we went out and enjoyed a lot. You must give this internship a try, you will learn a lot with a pleasant environment.
Good co interns
Good teaching mechanism
Near high court office so less travelling
I live in Vapi which is nearby Mumbai so I used to travel daily, but you can get thousands of PGs over there.
