I was told to research on the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 and had to make brief of the cases which they dealt with.

I also visited an orphanage and attended an awareness programme on Gender Sensitization ,which was quite interesting . After that I interviewed lawyers appointed by DLSA who dealt with cases relating to Domestic violence and had to compile the same.

At the end of my internship I had to give presentation on the work that I did.

Work Environment and people:

The work environment is friendly though they are quite particular with their work.

There were no bad things as such.

Got the reality check of the mindset of the lawyers dealing with cases relating to PWDV Act,2005 who  themselves appeared to be against the act.

9 out of 10.


I reside in Lucknow itself, so accommodation was not an issue.
