First Impression, First Day Formalities, Infrastructure
The office of the AAG is at the Bikaner House, New Delhi, which is near Khan Market. As soon as you enter the Bikaner House you’ll get a feeling like you’re in Rajasthan. The first impression went quite well. The personal secretary (PS) of the AAG helped us around in telling us the rules of the office.
The AAG assigned us tasks as soon as we met him. The office had some junior advocates as well who were very welcoming and helpful.
The main tasks that were assigned to us were that of research.
We also wrote judgment notes for publishing in Legal Horizon.
We also got the chance of going through major cases that were being dealt in the Supreme Court. Major work that was assigned to us was of research.
Work Environment and People
Work environment was really good. The junior advocates, the PS of Sir and the AAG himself were all very helpful and patient. They all were very keen to address our queries.
The best thing about the office was the location of it. It is near Khan Market. So if one has to get there through metro, one has to get down at Khan Market Metro Station. After working for hours in the office you can always take a stop at the Khan Market and grab a coffee at the Big Chill and chill. 😉
There were no bad things about the entire internship experience. The only thing was long hours of work. You might have to leave the office after everyone’s left. So you’ll have to wait for people to finish their jobs to leave.
The lesson I learned was that being a lawyer is not at all easy. It’s one hell of a job. And after you’re a lawyer, your life revolves around layers and layers of files and nothing else.
