Indu Malhotra is a Senior Advocate of the Supreme Court (the second lady advocate to be designated 'senior advocate' in the history of SC) and has a firm with around ten associates.

I am a third year student from NUJS, Kolkata. At the end of my second year, I had done an internship at Mr. Amarjeet Singh Chandhiok's office in New Delhi. It turned out to be a great experience for me. For those who want quality research work in a
