Duration of internship and timings

December 2012 to January 2013

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

It the second biggest mediation centre of India. Staff was very professional and dedicated.

Interns reported to Deputy Director who was Mr. MA Aris, Civil Judge at that time and the office was headed by Director. Mr. Chandrashekhar was director at that time and was of ADJ rank.

Building is of multiple stories with lok adalats on other floors and mediation centre at ground floor.

There were not much of the formalities and we were straightly put to work.

Main tasks

We used to sit and observe the mediation proceedings. Mainly these were family law; divorce, restitution of conjugal rights, custody of issues related matters.

The mediators were highly trained and very efficient in what they did. Best part they were keen in ensuring thay we were understanding issues and approaches taken to resolve those issues.

Daily we used to observe 5-7 proceedings and took notes of matters for putting it in final report.YES! A final internship report was required to be made by each intern

Work environment and people

Like I said above, staff was very cooperating and accommodating.

Mediators sometimes sat with us and shared their experiences and views.

They were strict with procedural part of mediation. And tool time to explained the stages of the proceedings.

There was no communication barrier what so ever between us and mediators, even Director or Deputy director for that matter.

Best things

Mr. Chandrashekhar (Director) spent time with us whenever possible and listened to our views over current issues. Nirbhaya Case had just occurred and was most often debated/discussed matter.

Moreover, he took us to Karnataka High Court to meet few judges in their chamber! Trust me it was an amazingly exciting moment for me as a 2nd year law student!

Bad things

At times routine got bit mundane.



Biggest Lessons

Well! The lessons I took were more on philosophical and human ethics front and less on law related front.

Despite all their high end positions, these senior officials and judges were so down to earth and humble that it actually left an ever lasting impression on my mind. Humility is surest hint of knowledge.

Any Other Thing


Overall Rating



My father was posted there during those days so, I stayed with him.

Office Timings

Office timings were not very strict. We used to reach by 0930 hrs and left office latest by 1600 hrs.
