What the lawyers looked for were not pages of research and case laws, rather they looked for precise statements of the existing laws and how well one could answer the question asked. The focus always remained on the question that was asked and what was expected. So unless you've been specifically asked, don't submit a
The best thing about the office were definitely the "Associates" and the "Library".

His explanation is excellent and after attending just few of his classes,
I learnt the practical application of the law in the corporate world. Infact, I learnt more in 25 days than what a year at law school had taught me. There is a brilliant work culture, the work is great and comprehensive and interns are treated like full time attorneys. By Suprotik Das, Jindal
Frankly speaking 95% of the associates in this firm are friendly and very helpful (24x7 available). They don't let the work pressure affect their behaviour towards interns working under them. This attitude is very important for the increase in the productivity of the fellow employees and interns. Sahil Tandon, Symbiosis Law School, NOIDA, IInd
Work environment was very friendly. Everyone including the staff treated me well. If you have a problem you can approach anyone and they are happy to help you. During lunch time we had long chats and they would offer me home-cooked food as they knew I stayed in PG and used to order food.
Basically, you would never feel that you are 'just' an intern, but almost an integral part of the workforce. That adds responsibility to your work as well as excitement. Coming to the research work, the subjects may range from corporate to family, case laws, and by that you are made to cover a plethora

I have learned Drafting and court proceedings under the Legal Head. By Aishwarya Nigam 2nd year, NLUJA, Assam.
Nobody expects you to spit out answers as soon as a question is thrown at you, take your time and work on it but be prepared when it's time to discuss it with your team or associate. There's a lot to be learnt from these exercises and you are encouraged to put your own views
I was lucky that my certificate got signed and stamped by a clerk, all the other interns had massive scrutiny on their certification, with most work done by them modified or deleted. Interns at OP Khaitan are seated next to their accounts department and all the other clerks of the office, and there was talk
They are friendly, they give you good work, they explain concepts, they don't think you are a piece of dirt (unlike certain other law firm associates), they talk to you kindly, they involve you in discussions and most of all they are considerate.
You will definitely get to learn something new everyday, the associates ensure that, as they keep a check on every intern. If you require anything for research latest commentaries or bare acts, you can simple approach the senior associate and the material will be on your table the next morning.
There’s a lot of work that gets assigned to you.. From case law research, to drafting of legal notices and rejoinders, writing research articles. The interns get to do even the smallest of things, be it the preparation of invoices and even the filling of web queries. By Abraham Mathew Kandathil, Final year LL.B
I called up their office on the number mentioned on the website. The receptionist directed me to send an email to Mr. Shashank Garg who approved my internship for the month with a few hours (I was jumping with joy!)
All the things I had heard about slaving the first half decade after law school was just the stuff of legends (due to my prior internships) until Link Legal happened to me. It is a tough-tough environment to be in where you feel like a slave.

You can also ask about marketing, advertising & branding strategies that a law firm can adopt to the concerned senior consultants (however work on marketing and
My main task was to help all lawyers in their research. I was summoned when needed and given loads of research work on various topics like Indian Stamp act, Income Tax act, Indian Contract act, Companies act etc. I was asked to find Judgments using Manupatra, SCC etc.
I used to hate corporate governance and company law and firmly maintained that it isn't my cup of tea- mainly because I had never tried learning the practical aspects of it. But, I would ever, ever be grateful to PXV for flipping my interest in it around by 180 degree. By Aanchal Arora; Campus
First impression as already said the office was really difficult to locate. No such formalities were there. The partner came to know that a new intern has joined and assigned work straightaway. There is no need to know the name, college, year ( useless formalities eh)
For instance, if a couple's heading for divorce but one of them WANTS to make it work, would you or would you not recommend that they go in for Mediation? I was stunned by how important simple things affect your judgement of a party, especially matrimonial ones.
The work environment was very chilled out. Everyone in the office had lunch together. Partners had a separate room for that. The lunch time conversation would range from complex corporate case law discussions to even review of a newly released movie. All the Associates were young and very friendly. They really do pay attention to
