The experience taught me how to make your way through the crowd. I will never forget what Sir said to us all on our last day – “Value time because there is nothing as precious a thing as time, which will never come back to you. Make the most of it.” Observing him closely makes
The people were the best thing about the internship. Moreover, the sessions conducted by several eminent personalities on a plethors of human rights issues ranging from women to child, disabled to old age, leprosy to environment, health to manual scavenging, police reforms to prison reforms were enlightening and thought provoking.

Once I had sent my application, I received a reply within 6-7 hours wherein I was given 4 tasks (short research assignments) to work on and submit, on the basis of which my internship would get confirmed. By Prayank Jain, Symbiosis Law School, NOIDA, IInd Semester (B.A., LL.B.)
Our tasks were different everyday. In the initial days we were only given sample papers to work on. We were divided into groups and we had to read around 20-50 cases per day and give cognizance to the one's which could be accepted by the commission. We worked in groups and it was boring a
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
For example if you open any act on Manupatra you will find a button ‘Legal summary’ which explains each and every section of that act in simple layman language. That was my main task. Mahip Singh Sikarwar, 3rd year, HNLU Raipur
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. By Kritika Khanna, Bharati Vidyapeeth's New
My first impression about the organisation was that I will be made to have some real experience in dealing with the legal issues. The first day was good as we were introduced to the basics of IPR by the person incharge of the Patents and then we were introduced to the director of the organisation.
From the 1st day I got to work. I got an impression that the BMC operates like a close-knit family, rather than an impersonal legal institution. The Deputy Director, who was in charge of my internship, helped a lot to make the interns feel comfortable with the environment.By Ipsita Mukherjee, Bishop Cotton Women’s Christian Law
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
Since I am fond of Constitutional Law, I had applied for this internship hoping to be given work in that area. I was glad when in the second week my co-intern and I were given the chance to work on a challenging legal opinion which involved Constitutional law and administrative law. By Sohini Chatterjee,
Another interesting piece of work came from the Real estate department that involved me and my co intern to identify and summarise Stamp duty rates for lease agreement, sale deed, leave and licence, Mortgage by deposit of title deeds, hypothecation / pledge for all the States and U.T.'s of India, for which almost a month
If you are really interested in working then they can allot you almost anything and everything. From general researching to drafting replies, evidence, statements etc. to even preparing invoices for the firm. You want, you can get to go to the courts. You want, you get to attend meetings with the clients. All in all
The environment is not as strict as a law firm or a lawyer's office, but there is still something that keeps us committed to our work. It surely is the attitude of the partners which keeps our spirits high! A place where young minds interact and work together has to be great, and it really
After a very disappointing first day, I was called by the head and told I shouldn't expect any money for what I was doing. What a fail. Not that I expected any, but she squashed the little hope I had as well. They are the largest Self Help Women's NGO in all of Asia and
My overall work there included working on the health sector of India, and to collect data of different countries which follow Universal health care system and see how would it apply to India. It was a really interesting task to see how people in different countries.
My first impression about the firm seemed that it was a very happy place to work in! All the associates were very friendly with each other (which quite honestly is rare in most law firms), and made me feel right at home from the very beginning.
The BEST thing has to be the Knowledge share session that they have once a month! The Partner present at the Noida office (Ms. Sujata) conducted a session on trade marks and it was attended by all the Associates and myself (the only intern at that time). It was totally informal and a very different
What I have noticed in most Indian internships I have done so far, if not all, there is always an 'interns room' where the interns sit and mingle. Its most of the time cut off from the rest of the office and the interaction between the interns and the lawyers in the office is restricted
We prepared the writ ourselves and argued before the court. There is great confidence boost after this kind of internship. I made new friends, increased some people in the directory of contacts and last but not the least working for Human rights of the downtrodden people was kinda blessing for me. By Ambuj Dixit,
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
They themselves won't teach you anything. However, if you approach them they'll guide you. Don't expect loads of work. You don't get to learn everyday, which is a drawback in itself. And if you are a foodie, it's a bad bad place. There's an adjacent shop but that's seriously pathetic. By Aishwarya Dhakarey, Symbiosis
