I had interned under Ajal K. Shrivastava at High Court Allahabad. There were 5 members.

Application process with contact details

As is my Uncle is an Advocate in High Court so I approached him directly. His office is on Sapru Road Allahabad. One can come directly.

Duration of Internship and timings

1st May 2014 to 1st June 2014 (28 Days)

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

First day he has taken me to the High Court and first impression of High Court was absolutely different from what we see on television. It’s was really different, infrastructure was old but when I went inside, every lawyer was sitting in their chamber.

Main tasks

Main task is nothing much we have to go to the High Court and on day one we were made to sit at the Court room of the Chief Justice there PIL was going on about the construction of some garden for the interest of the public.

Than we were taken to the another court room and there some different case was going on and they were speaking so slowly that it was not audible and by the end of the day we have to analyse whole of the case that we had attended and we have to give the written report on daily basis.

That was analysed by the sir and we were given rewards on the basis of that.

Work environment and people

Working environment is OK, but if you will go to High Court you will come across various things that you cannot predict. Court rooms very different from virtual life and we have to follow every etiquette of the court.

Best things

Apart from whole of the internship I like that I have gone to the court and learnt various thing and got the opportunity to meet many senior advocates.

Bad things

There is nothing that I can say is bad in this whole internship. Every thing is a new learning.


It was unpaid, no stipend.

Biggest Lessons

One of my biggest lesson is that real and reel life both are very different.


As that was my uncle’s place, so I stayed at his place.

Office Timings

10:00 till 4:00. Timing was generally flexible as some time I came back at 2:00 and working days were Monday to Friday. There is no compulsion of going daily.
