Application Process with contact details
I had applied to this internship by means of recommendation from a close relative of mine.
Duration of Internship and timings
June 15, 2016 – July 15, 2016
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
The first day I had to wait at the lobby for an hour or more to see the Advocate General.
It’s then that I realized that he was a very busy man.
There were lots of case bundles in the lobby itself and I was shocked to the fact that the government actually has so many cases and wondered how they would dispose it all off.
The main task that was assigned to us was to follow a case. We would be given a case file and asked to read it for the next day.
The next day when the case is being heard we would have to record all the happenings and after the hearing we would be called in for a discussion.
Work environment and people
The work environment was very friendly.
The government pleaders, the staff, were really friendly with us.
They knew our limits and tried to push us out of our comfort zone without overwhelming us.
The government pleaders in charge of us really made it a point that we start thinking out of the box.
They were very patient with us and used to sit and explain all the cases in utmost details.
The best thing about this internship was the amount I got to learn from it.
The government pleaders were really supportive of us and I never felt left out.
I don’t really have a bad thing as such to point out.
It was overall a very good experience for me.
It wasn’t all the law that I learned, it was more about how the government worked and the actual insides of the government which we fail to recognize and we just simply sit and complain about the government.
I stayed at my relative’s place.
The office timing was the usual court timing.
But we didn’t have a stipulated time.
Though the court hearings would stop around 4 we would have to stay back for discussions and all other work till 6 or so.
