Duration of internship and timings

It’s of 7 days. I did in April 2014.

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

First day we were given an introductory session and were told the reason why internship is of 7 days only. Also we were asked questions and informed as to how and what will we doing in those 7 days.

Main tasks

Main tasks were to observe the mediators and make note of it. Observe the parties, the situations, circumstance and if lucky enough we were allowed to mediate as well in few cases.

At the end of internship we had to submit a report which included a brief narration of all the cases we were a part of along with what we learned.

Work environment and people

Vijay sir was very helpful and the work environment was very active and lively since there were lots of cases although mostly about marriage disputes.

Some on Negotiable Instruments as well.

Best things

Best thing was seeing how difficult it is to be a mediator resolving disputes along with the fact that we got to mediate few cases and help some families by giving our suggestion to mediators which were recognised by them as being very helpful and then acting on it.

Bad things

Bad thing was the lack of clean and cold drinking water since during summers we needed it very much.



Biggest Lessons

Biggest lessons were that how minor things end up being the reason for family disputes and eventually their drifting apart.

Also, that people need to be more careful if they don`t want to get fooled and end up in this legal spiral and that awareness of your right is extremely important.

Any Other Thing

Observing the Mediation proceedings provide a whole different perspective on relationships between people.
