Advocate Shyam Sunder Sharma, Jaipur. Shyam sir had an associate and a clerk working with him.
Application Process with contact details
I applied through a personal contact.
Duration of internship and timings
1st May, 2014 – 30th May, 2014. I had completed my first year only at the time of internship.
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
On my first day I was asked to report at Lawyers Chambers, District Court, Jaipur at 8 am since during summers the court timings were 7:30 am to 1 pm. There were not any formalities as such. Shyam Sir had an associate working with him whom I accompanied to several courts such as Rent Court, Negotiable Instrument Act Court, Consumer Court and various other civil and criminal courts.
After the court hours, I was asked to report at Office at 5 pm which was in Banipark, Jaipur. The office was well furnished area comprising of two Air-conditioned rooms. I was also given a desk where I did all my work.
The primary task was researching on several matters pertaining to CrPC, IPC, Negotiable Instruments Act, Domestic Violence Act etc.
Moreover, I was asked to read case files to learn mainly how the law procedure works in practical life. Since, the work in district courts was mainly in Hindi so I was not given drafting work.
Work environment and people
The work environment was very good. Shyam Sir and his associate i.e. Yogesh Sir gave lot of personal attention to interns. Shyam sir everyday used to teach some concept and talk about the cases which were listed for the next day.
Moreover, he explained me the entire procedure relating to cases pertaining to dishonour of cheques. Apart from that, he was very patient in answering the queries. Also, he helped me lot when I used to read case files by telling the meanings of complex Hindi words in English.
Apart from him, Yogesh sir was very friendly in nature. He used to tell my factual background of cases and at what stage the case has reached and that made understanding court proceedings very easy. Further, he also discussed with me his personal experience in litigation.
The best thing was that personal attention was given to interns and the work environment was very good.
The bad thing during the internship was that almost everyday dates were given in most cases and only a few cases were there in which arguments or something substantial happened. Apart from that, the proceedings of trial courts were conducted in Hindi which was very boring and made understanding things difficult.
Be patient and work hard.
