Chambers of Advocate Gokulesh Sharma, District Court, Mathura
I was referred to Mr. Gokulesh Sharma through a friend of mine.
July 1st 2015- July 30th 2015.
The first impression of the advocate as a teacher and mentor was quite awesome.
For the first day he took me to a kind of a tour of the court to show what kind of work is done where.
As Mr. Sharma was a criminal lawyer so most of my work revolved around studying case files and understanding the case and making a report on it.
To extend my work so that I can learn more, he took me with him to the proceedings to show how it is conducted.
The District Court of Mathura is filled with all kinds of people and to make the environment suitable for a girl to intern there my advocate took proper measures for it and hence I worked in an amazing clean and learning environment.
The best things were I never felt pressurized while working under him.
The work was enough to keep me busy all day and plus as a praise whenever I did my work good enough I was provided with a reward (that can be another superbly interesting legal work also ). 😛
The only bad thing was that he went out of station a lot and that sometimes minimized my working hours.
I gained a lot of practical knowledge about criminal law during this internship plus this was my first experience in a court and that too ended very nicely.
