First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
I Reported to office around 9 am and there were no such formalities at all
. The head of the firm Amitesh Chandra sir called me around 10’o clock and a brief introductory session followed by instructions regarding my tasks.
I got to research on various law points helping in case research related to bank guarantee, ingredients of defamation, preparing legal opinion and preparing case notes assisting the juniors and sir as in regard to various cases.
Except these things I had the opportunity to witness the proceedings in Supreme Court where I was at odd situation when while entering the premises I bend down and took the blessings like we take from elders, assisting junior associate Abhishek Sir by attending various proceedings along with him in High Court, Tees Hazari Court and Patiala House Court. (Witnessed eminent jurists like Ram Jethmalani sir, Abhishek Manu Singhvi sir argue).
Also I had the opportunity to visit TDSAT along with various associates and state consumer disputes commission.
Work environment and people
All of the associates were helpful including the head Amitesh Sir and you will never feel like you have no work or you are lost up as the work assigned is very difficult.
You can approach for help as and when needed. Keep in mind not to disturb them while they are working as it may annoy them.
The immense exposure you witness due to being actively involved in various areas and not stuck up in one court or tribunal.
At time you have no work to do and you sit along idle the whole day.
Be a pro active person and don’t feel odd to ask for work or you will be left with no work.
You can chill around having coffee at Barista just near the office, awesome food in Bengali market (vegetarian), pastries shop where you can also have yummy chocolates.
For Non Veg lovers don’t be annoyed because Gulati at Pandara Road is just 35 Rs. from auto where you get to enjoy the best non veg (dont miss it )
Any Other Thing
If you are going to Delhi High Court (Don’t miss the awesome cold coffee there ) and the food.
*I got to learn so many things during such a short span that a 1 month internship would be a great brain exercise being exposed to different areas of law.
You will never feel that its a new start up firm of 2013 January.
