Another good thing about APL-SLG was that you might get legal research related to any subject, i.e., Corporate Law, Competition Law, IPR, Dispute Resolution, etc.
You get to learn a lot about drafting opinions and writing research articles. The HR team of the firm oversees every intern and makes sure that each and every intern has been allotted some work.

Overall Experience ?
Seniors and staffs were extremely cooperative and friendly.
I could always approach them with my doubts. I met a lot of clients, took notes. Sir would always advise me on cases and handling issues like confidentiality. The overall experience was worthwhile.
Nothing bad at all.
I enjoyed and learned a lot during my internship period.
I came to know that becoming a successful lawyer needs immense hard work and dedication.
