PHP Sir takes personal interest in interns, which is something I really appreciated in this internship. Unlike the cases of some of my friends working under other Supreme Court lawyers, PHP Sir does treat us as 'his' interns. We had to report to him when he was in the office or his chambers. He
On my first day, I was handed over the daily cause list and given the most important case for that day to read and be aware of what my senior is going to be arguing about. And later through the day, I was asked to fetch the latest SC judgment on a particular point of
They gave me the cases, the trial of which was to be conducted that day and then after reading those cases, I used to proceed with them to the court for listening the arguments and pleadings. I was also given research work relating to Environmental matters, which are filled in National Green Tribunal by them.
Basically the internship revolved around 3 main tasks : the first one was to observe all the matters in which sir and other associates appeared in, secondly to attend conferences and make useful notes and last but not least help in drafting SLP's or helping in research work.

Ma'am asked us about our college on the first day and told us that it did not matter to her that which year we were studying in and said that she would be treating us as lawyers and would give us lot of work. Aditya Marwah, Jindal Global Law School, 2nd Year
The best part is that Rajan sir solves all your legal queries, ensures that you are working properly and the office has a good library which can be accessed by interns. The bad part is that their is no stipend and snacks and also interns cannot do drafting or present their oral arguments on case
My main task included preparing and studying cases for the next day, attending the court proceedings in both HC and SC, drafting letters and emails, replying and calling officers and clients to attend their cases, researching on cases,finding judgement and jotting down points of law and arguments. I even attended the mediation proceedings.
Your main tasks will involve a lot of research work on absolutely interesting stuff like Stadium Season Ticket Holders' rights and ad regulations for a big beverages company.

There was mainly research work! Also, I went to the supreme court and the high court, and they also take you to see Arbitratio , if there is any going on. It was a treat to hear Mr.Tripathi argue! He's amazing , so confident, so jolly and so good at his work. He's very cool
There are hardly any internship out there like this one that go beyond mere head knowledge to the more crucial dimension of argument formation and transformation. I didn’t just learn, I grew more. The internship gave me a better insight of Indian Legal System. I enjoyed being treated as a colleague & not as summer
You will be asked to do research on miscellaneous topics. You have to frame arguments for your party. Also find appropriate case law if necessary. The work was assigned according to our skills.

Best thing is that it is a very awesome, delightful, incredible exposure for law student to grab the maximum in short spam of one month. You learn things like court room ethics, arguments advanced in closed files etc.
Further the associates and partners give personal attention to interns if any one is facing problem to do
The best part about the internship has to be the 'classes' that he takes which I have talked about above. Watching him argue in big cases and then discussing it with him is an absolute treat, too. Also, he takes the interns out for a spin in his BMW now and then. How cool is
There are variety of cases ranging from criminal cases, civil cases, co-operative societies disputes, family disputes etc.

You are also required to attend the conferences that happen, that is the meeting with the clients when they come to discuss their case with Sir, of the cases that you are working on. Most of the work in this internship will require reading different case files and researching the topics given. By Surpreet

His 5 feet 6 inch height was enough to shake the opponent arguments. As soon as he reached his room, his junior used to give him his tobacco packet which was his daily routine. He was part cunning and part loving/ sincere. By Rajeev Agrawal, Damodaram Sanjivayya National law University, 1st year
I tried not to miss the Court visits for two reasons:
a) That you get to see Mr.Luthra in action (yes, I am in awe of him) and
b) You'd rather have lunch at the Court than at Khan market, especially if you're on a budget and plan to enjoy your weekends.
