Duration of Internship and timings
May 15th, 2015 – July 2nd, 2015
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
I had to report at 9.30 a.m. to Patiala House Court. Manoj bhaiya, he is the clerk there, introduced me to the associates and asked me read some case files till the time sir came to the chamber. There were no formalities as such.
I met sir in the second half of the day and it was a small interaction session kind of a thing.
Sir is very friendly and helpful. Its just that you’ll have to go and get the work from him and also report him on the same.
IMPORTANT: If he does’t ask for the work done by you does not mean he is not aware of what you’re doing. Your sincerity will always be on CHECK mode.
1. Research Work
2. Drafting of bail application and re-joinders
3. Reading case files and making notes.
As far as drafting is concerned, the associates are gems. They will help you throughout the process.
Work environment and people
The work environment is really nice and chilled. Amit Sir and his associates are really nice people.
You can take this internship not only as an opportunity to build your professional rapport but a healthy personal relationship too.
As Sir is the Special Public Prosecutor for National Investigation Agency, I got a chance to see a few terrorists.
That was thrilling and scary at the same time. There is a lot to learn, specially, for those who wish to pursue Litigation.
None at all.
No stipend, but interning under such a learned person was more than any monetary reward.
Be punctual, learn to observe and hard work can do wonders. Understand that law is actually a prestigious profession.
When people hire you, they really count on you. Knowing your case super well is the path to winning post.
I am a Delhite, so accommodation was not an issue for me. His chamber is in Patiala House Court and you can find a PG accommodation nearby CP.
9.30 AM – 5.00 PM.
However, you can leave early also. They are very flexible about the timings, so you can chill on that. Plus C.P. is nearby, so food is not a problem.
