First Impression, First Day Formalities, Infrastructure
On my first day, since I reached before time, I was shown my desk where each intern is given a separate space to sit in.
The office is highly professional in working and interns are treated in a friendly manner.
Introduction was done with all the associates and co-interns and office was shown around. Rules and Regulations were told. I was provided with a separate working desk and computer along with ARA Law notepad.
The infrastructure is fancy.
Since the firm specializes in corporate law, research work was given on Mergers, Alternate Investment Funds and Company Law mainly.
Drafting of resolutions and filing of DIR was done. Listing and reviewing of documents were also done by me in the course of internship. Analysis was submitted on Tripartite Agreements and latest legislation and regulation on AIF and Company Law.
Work Environment and People
The firm has a professional attitude towards work and interns are expected to meet the deadlines of the work which is given to them.
The associates are friendly and explain the mistakes committed by the interns. Weekly presentations are done which help in developing and understanding the concepts in much detail. The interns are valued and are given quality work.
The assignments given are expected to be done on time and later the feedback is given on the work. The friendly environment with interns and the work culture.
On a light note, the snacks are given in evening to all the employees which is another boast for working and coffee vending machine is also a perk.
At the end of the month an office party makes your internship experience even more memorable.
There is no such bad thing about ARA Law. The work given helps in improving your capability and understanding in the subject.
