Bihar Legal Services Authority, Patna, 15-20 people
There is no any provision of applying online there. We are supposed to go to their office and submit our college recommendation letter there.
Duration of internship and timings
The duration of internship there is of 3 weeks in the month of December in the case of winter internship as well as in the month of may in summer internship.
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
My first impression was quite good. We all got a warm welcome there, there was no such formalities there. We all were treated like budding lawyers there and they encouraged us a lot towards our profession.
We were basically taught there some of the important laws like CPC, CrPC, IPC etc and were also made aware about the functioning of legal services authority at different levels.
Also we were taught how to file plaint in court and the procedures related to it.
Work environment and people
Work environment was quite good and also the office was so neat and clean and big. People working there were quite friendly and helpful.
Best thing about this internship was that we got to learn so many things.
There was nothing bad as such in that internship. The only problem was that they conducted lectures on various topics such as CPC, CrPC, IPC etc which seemed very boring to me as I was in my first semester of first year and I hadn’t any knowledge about it , otherwise every other thing about them was fine.
The biggest lesson which I learnt during my internship was patience because it requires a lot of patience in attending a two hour lecture.
