Duration of internship
July 1, 2013- August 3, 2013
Though they do not keep interns usually, one can send their CV at [email removed on request].
As per the University guidelines, it was a 4 week internship. 6 days a week. I got to learn a lot on Saturdays. Timings 9 a.m- 1 p.m
First impression was very serious and disciplined but not too scary, basically a no-nonsense one.
My first day at the internship was also the day I stepped into a court for the first time. I had to report in the office at 9 and from there we proceeded daily to the respective courts.
We had gone to Tis Hazari District Court on the first day, where I got to see a real court room first time in my life! Nevertheless, I wasn’t disappointed. No formalities as such.
- Attend court hearings.
- Make note of court proceedings.
- Legal research topics were given frequently.
- Search judgments and other related materials to a case.
- Read case briefs and hence make note of it.
Work environment, people
Work environment was absolutely nice. Never felt out of place. Created a whole new interest in litigation. People were helpful and caring.
1. When we won a case in Supreme Court in which I had contributed a lot.
2. The constant morale-boosts.
3. The delicious food I got to eat almost everyday.
4. The reality.
1. Awkward silences while travelling.
To chill in I used to ask every single question/doubt that popped in my brain whenever I got time (related to law of course). Got answers to all of them. 😀 Since I live in Delhi, I had no problems while commuting to and fro the office.
