Application process with contact Details
I stay close to their office-cum residence and so approached sir directly.
You can however send an e-mail along with your resume to [email protected] and you will receive a prompt response.
4 weeks, May-June 2015. timings are generally 9 am to 6 pm, (however it depends mostly on work load) 6 days a week.
First impression, First day formalities, Infrastructure
The office is located on the ground floor of their residence and is a complete state of the art office.
Sir is a voracious reader and has an extensive library and interns have complete access to it.
There are no formalities as such, and sir is very warm and welcoming.
He will interact with the interns on a one-to-one basis and will ask as to what are your interests and what all you have studied in college.
On days which the court is open you have to reach the office by 9 am. Sir deals largely with civil matters and criminal appeals.
During the internship I read cases ranging from land and matrimonial disputes, to cases under the MVAC.
Sir is always there to clear doubts and also values the opinions of the interns.
Work environment, People
There is a conference room where the interns usually sit. You have access to the computers and wifi for any of the work assigned to you.
There is a small kitchenette where you can have water/tea and warm your lunch or have a light snack.
There are four associates and are very friendly and always ready to help you.
You get to see him present his arguments beautifully in front of the judges without having to raise or scream unlike many other lawyers at the high court.
It is indeed a Master class in arguments!!
