I applied by sending the CV on the email id: [email protected] and within a day got a reply. Since only two interns are allowed in a month make sure you send it 6 months prior to the desired internship period.
I was asked to reach his office by 10:00 am and was greeted by his office staff after waiting for 5-10 mins I was introduced to Mr. Vaidyanathan where he asked few basic questions about college, year of study etc.
Work environment and people
The work environment was amazing. There is no associate and I was the only intern at that time. Office staff was very friendly and caring. Ranjeet Bhaiya was always ready to treat me with his hand made coffee which was so great.
Ramu Sir who is PS to Mr. Vaidyanathan made sure that i get to learn new things daily and he also used to share his South Indian food with me . Suresh Sir and Subramaniam Sir were also very Humble and sweet.
As there was no associate so I was allotted work directly by Sir. Since he is a Senior Advocate so there was no Drafting work.
The tasks which I was given were making case notes, do research on various things, prepare briefs. I accompanied Sir to various courts like Supreme Court, High Court and Tribunals as well.
I have never seen or heard about a Senior Advocate who is so Humble and Down to earth as Mr. CSV.
He was easily approachable. Sir takes interns to the Court in his own car which further increases opportunity to observe and interact. Sir makes sure that an intern is getting appropriate work and not sitting idle. He trusted me with the work that he gave me.
I also got the opportunity to read brief of Ayodhya Case and Vijay Mallya’s case.
I did not find anything bad other than (i) No intern to talk (ii) No shops, café to eat outside.
I received stipend of Rs. 8000
Office timings are quite flexible you are supposed to reach by 9:30. There is no fixed leaving time if one does not have any work to do he can leave by 5 or 6.
