First Impression, First Day Formalities and Infrastructure
The office is situated in one of the oldest Heritage Buildings of Kolkata and which is just next to the High Court. Its a pretty old building and has poor infrastructure but the office is quite big and interns are given and desk and chairs sit, although there is not much office work to be done and most of your time will be spent in the High Court.
On the first day, Debasish Sir introduced us to the other advocates in the organisation and appointed one partner to assign us tasks. On the very first day itself he took us to the court and made us know how the court proceedings are taken place and made us memorize all the name of the Judges and their respective benches.
The main tasks were to visit the court and hear all the important cases of that day (around 3 to 5) and make a report of that and had to be submitted to the partner at the end of the day.
Other than that we were also made to do some research work on Criminal law.
Work Environment and People
Everyone there starting from the associates to the working staffs are really helpful and friendly. Only in three weeks they had become a small family.
You can always approach any associate with any query and they will solve that out at the earliest.
The location of the office. Its in Dalhousie so you get good food at a low cost. Also, it is very close to the court so you dont need to walk a long way to reach there. Interns from outside Kolkata can easily find cheap PGs and hotels nearby.
Litigation life is very different from college life. it may look easy but its not. Till the time you are in college enjoy it!
