Duration of internship and timings:

1st  week of December  2018- 4th  week of December 2018.

Timings: 09:30 AM to 4:00 PM.

First impression, First day formalities, infrastructure:

Firstly, on the 1st day, I went there late by approx 1hr 30mins (i.e. 11 AM) as I have a bad habit of reaching at any internship place minimum 1 hour late as per the scheduled time.

Even here, I applied same and believe me, this is the last time when I forgot my habit as I have to reach at Sir’s Chamber by sharp 9:30 A.M as per the direction of Suneet Sir.

Then Sir introduced me to the associate-in-charge of the interns, Mr. Sunil Parsad, Advocate, who welcomed me. I was then made to fill a form and submit it, along with a couple of passport-size photos of mine, photocopy of ID card and Aadhar card.

Thereafter, I was made to sit with other interns, with whom I spent most of the time during the course of my internship. I then went to court with sir for a case and then some research work was given by sir.

Main tasks:

Main tasks are to visit various courts of Delhi for hearing and after completion of that, one has to brief about the case. Every intern is supposed to make daily details of work done by him/her.

Interns have also to re-write any judgment of any case as per their comfort and have to show it to Sir.

Work environment and people:

The work environment is really positive and that’s because of sir, who makes the interns feel good about coming to work. The staff is nice and kind and the associates are very humble and friendly.

This is the first internship where I felt very comfortable than any other place, as Suneet Sir and other associates like Ashutosh Sir, Sunil Sir, and Pramod Sir always gave respect to interns and never upset you whenever you approach them with any issue you have.

Suneet Sir and associates are always ready and willing to help interns in their work not only during the office hour but beyond office hours also via phone calls.

Sometimes they also have fun with interns and tend to make the atmosphere light and more comfortable than usual and sometimes serious discussion about the laws also take place.

Best things:

Apart from the positives that have been discussed so far, interns get to have a chance to express their views about any related case in the chamber, during which sir tends to discuss case details as well as political and current issues.

I also got an opportunity for the first time in my life to stand in front of Hon’ble judge and argue with them to pass over the matter and also sometimes to take next date.

Suneet  Sir sometimes calls interns to his table after completing his work, or when he is free from his work where the interns get the chance to interact with him and share their views.

Bad things:

There are no bad things as such for me, but I wish to inform everyone who wants to do an internship under Suneet Kumar Gupta Sir, be punctual and disciplined and you have to work there otherwise you won’t be able to Intern under Sir.

Biggest lessons:

Showing that you are passionate about the work, will make a lasting impression that could benefit you in the future when it comes to asking for a reference.

Internships can be a lot of fun, so relax, get to know the new people around you and enjoy yourself along with the internship.
