Name of Organisation, Location
Amarchand & Mangaldas, Suresh A. Shroff Co., New Delhi.
Application Process (with contact details)
I got through it with the help of Personal Contact which was followed by submitting a long questionnaire which literally plunged into every aspect as if it is an off desk interview before recruitment.
Duration of internship and timings
Duration of the internship – 4 weeks.
Timings – 9:30 a.m. onwards.
No specific time for leaving office.
There were very few days when I got free before 9 p.m.
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
AMSS’ first impression is that of a luxury hotel.
On the first day, I went through an induction process, where I was acquainted with the working of the firm, asked to fill out my particulars in a form, including my area of interest, and then was allotted a team.
In the beginning, the work mainly comprised of research, proof-reading (which seemed to be a waste of time), research again.
However, within two days, I started getting good research work, notes and briefs to prepare, and eventually, even got to try my hand at drafting.
I was with the Corporate Team, but since they did not have much work, I got work from the Litigation team, which kept me thoroughly occupied.
Work environment and people
The work environment was cordial and the people were nice.
But they were very particular about the work, so if you made a mistake, you couldn’t escape being rebuked.
Continuous work to keep you occupied.
The work could have been better.
Also, overload of work made it difficult to wrap things up early and reach home in time, which was a huge matter of concern at home.
Also, since AMSS is located in Okhla, it took a very long time to commute from my place of residence.
Internship experiences differ from person to person.
So do not consider this as the usual practice.
It all depends upon how much labour you’re willing to put in. So make the best out of whichever internship you go for. There will be plenty to learn.
