Duration of internship and timings
6th January, 2014 – 14th January, 2014
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
On first day we were asked to give our introduction. Then we were given some case files to study and told to visit the respected court to watch proceedings of different cases.
Our main task was to observe the court proceedings. We used to study the case files first, then we move to the respected court in which that case had to be heard. Then we watch the proceedings in the court.
Work environment and people
Working environment was good. We were called upon to court every day and there the environment was somewhat serious and learning one. The people we met there were coordinating and helpful. They helped us at every point of time when we need.
Best thing was that it was our first experience in the courts and we were guided at everyplace and also were given case studies to study and then were allowed to see its proceedings in the respected courts. We also had a talk with the District and Session Judge during the internship which motivated us a lot.
Sometime we had to wait to observe the proceedings of the case of which we were given information.
Biggest lesson was in relation to the framing of case files. As we were taught how to prepare a case file and to submit it in the court.
Any Other Thing
It was a motivating internship as we had a personal talk with District and Session Judge, which was very knowledgeable.
