Duration of internship and timings
27th June, 2016 – 27th August, 2016
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
I was asked to report by 10:00 a.m.
I was quite excited about the it. We entered to the chamber and the interior was beautiful. Following up some basic courtesy we settled in the room.
There were few clients and we were requested to wait for 10 minutes.
As we sat in the chamber, we looked around the room, files were neatly stacked, books were neatly kept in their respective cupboards.
After the clients left Sir introduced himself, asked us our name, what is our ambition in life, what do we expect to learn from this internship, where had we interned earlier and few more questions.
As an intern our work isn’t usually confined to a specific topic or a subject. It includes wide range of tasks, assigned regularly, with some specified intended outcomes.
They would give clear instructions and make you clear about the project. If we had doubts we asked without hesitating. They were very patient and would answer all our queries related to cases or studies.
Work environment and people
The work environment was convivial, warm and energetic. When in doubt people are there to help you out. Lots of debating, discussion goes on regarding issues raised in the cases or research.
We co-interns would often pull each other’s leg and joke around. Talk and communicate on daily basis.
There is a huge difference between law in theory and law in action.
You might tend to forget what you learnt for semester exams but you can never forget sections you thoroughly researched and dealt for a case.
