Plash Mittal; University Institute of Legal Studies, Panjab University, Chandigarh; Final Year
Integrity Law Offices, Defence Colony, New Delhi.
I applied through an internship opportunity, which was published at lawctopus.com, well-in-time.
Duration of Internship
6 February, 2018 to 10 March, 2018
10 A.M. to 6:30 P.M.
Sundays and alternative Saturdays are off.
First Impression, First day formalities, Infrastructure
The firm has a plush office located at the basement in Block C, Defence Colony. The first day formalities include submitting of an updated CV, photocopies of mark-sheets and a passport size photograph. My first impression about the firm stayed till the end.
The main tasks involved extensive research on Sexual Harassment at Workplace, Insolvency and Bankruptcy Laws, Labour Laws and Company Law. Additionally, one may be asked to prepare legal opinions in different matters, snippets of recent developments in the legal arena, synopsis of certain ongoing matters, et al.
Work Environment and People
The firm is operated by 2 partners and 5-7 associates. You can go up to any associate or partner at anytime for any kind of doubt and you will be greeted in the most polite way possible. Also, the suggestions are all realistic and practicable. The work environment is friendly and cordial.
The partners and the associates are quite accommodating. One is given tasks according to their area of interests. The biggest thing an intern gets to learn is patience and whole-heartedness of accepting challenges.
