Duration of internship and timings

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
First day started at 9 a.m. and met few associates. It was pleased to meet Advocate C.H. Jadhav (Senior Advocate) in his personal chamber. A questionnaire was put and he was happy to admit me as his intern.
It was the Daily Cause List time, contained with specific details about Court Hall Number, Serial Number, Case Number, Stage of case and Party on Behalf with few Remarks.
Being the first day inside the High Court of Karnataka and Magistrate Court, I observed the proceeding in various Court Halls. At five it came to an end. At the office, went through few Petitions. All associates were very kind and very helpful.
The main task was to find the latest Supreme Court Judgments in SCC online or AIR monthly Journals and other research work.
I managed to keep track of the daily cause list and also some memos. I witnessed senior advocates and advocates arguments on the question of law and question of fact.
Work environment and people
According to my opinion this was the best place to learn about Criminal Law in detail, all associates were friendly and treated me as a part of their office. All associates are well read and helped me in enriching my knowledge of law by assigning tasks.
Provided good place to work and assisted all through the difficulties. I spent all my time with the associates from morning till evening, most of the time I ended my day at 9 p.m. and no restriction was posed on me regarding the time.
I never expected that I would be dealing with so high profiled cases and it was my privilege to obverse the proceeding in Lokayukta court and State Consumer Forum, and also dealt cases related to criminal law, CBI, NIA at High Court of Karnataka.
Amidst of series of great and memorable experiences following one after another waiting to enhance the glare of my experience and enrich with ocean full of knowledge, I did not find any time to pay attention towards bad experiences.
What I learnt back at my law school is complete academics and in court hall it is all about practicality and inflexible preparation of associates in their office. For me it enhanced my interest in Advocacy. Few Golden Rules of Advocacy are taught but you just need to wait for right time!!
Few tips to be an advocate given by the associates were the best lessons for me!
Firstly to wake up at 5 a.m., attend the Court every day, don’t sleep at night until you read something about law, etc. It created lot of interest in me with respect to law, while assisting associates with some supporting case laws.
The most memorable moment of this internship was when our Senior Advocate accepted the supporting case law which was found by me and the same was presented before the High Court of Karnataka which resulted in admission of the case.
Few moments of happiness with couple of funny incidents made the journey of my 6 weeks internship very exciting and meaningful.
