Duration of the Internship
July 1st– 30th July, 2015
Internship Experience @ Advocate Satish Kumar Verma, Delhi High Court
I got an opportunity to hone my advocacy skills in the Delhi High Court, India under a reputed lawyer, who never believed in sitting idle.
Since it was my first year experience I did not know much about law but all I wanted to do was to gain some experience.
I got an opportunity to learn as to how one can file a writ petition then to note down the number they provide you and then to check if it passed the procedure or there are certain flaws that needed attention be it numbering the page correctly or an affidavit missing.
With this I was also given an opportunity to observe the court proceedings. I got an opportunity to visit the court room of hon’ble chief justice of the high court G. ROHINI, J but did not get a chance to listen to her.
I also got a chance to listen to other hon’ble judges and listen the the court proceedings.
I also got an opportunity to make a visit to Mediation Court, Saket on 7.7.2015 where I was able to learn about this new dimension of lowering the burden that is levied on Indian courts by settling family issues that could be solved out of the court arena which saves both money and time.
It comprised of learned judges and counsels who were each a body in a cabin whereby they listened to the grievances of both the parties to reach a fair conclusion.
I got this opportunity to observe how the hon’ble judges paid attention to each detail of both the parties.
With this my experience of one month went all fruitful.
I got a chance to learn the difference in the interaction between an advocate and a client and an advocate and hon’ble court all about sheer determination and respect for the procedure established by law.
