Duration of internship and timings
6th July, 2015 – 30th July, 2015
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
On the first day, I was asked to report at 9 am. The court starts from 10 am so I had to spend one hour in my sir’s chamber. The chamber is well furnished and well equipped with books. There were three clerks and two junior advocates under my sir. At around 10 am was sent to the court with the advocates. Whole day I spent observing court proceedings. The advocates taught me how to read the cause list and also briefed me about the ongoing matters of my sir.
Main task was to observe court proceedings. I used to follow the cause list and inform my sir about which item number is going on in which court and when his item number is going to come. I was also given briefs of the ongoing matters to read. I also used to take dictation from him.
Work environment and people
Everybody in the office were very friendly and supportive. I was free to pose queries on any matter and my sir as well as other advocates used to answer my queries with patience and never rebuked me for anything.
Basically sir used to deal with company law related matters and I he used to make me sit and read certain provisions of the Companies Act which are related to the cases and used to clear all my doubts. This helped me grasp a decent amount of knowledge on the particular subject and have helped me in my academics as well.
I didn’t find anything as such.
This was my first internship under an advocate in High Court and from this internship I have learnt how things work in a High Court. I believe one must interns under an advocate before interning in any law firm or company because under an advocate you get to learn things from the grass root level.
I am from Kolkata so accommodation was not a problem for me.But the non residents can easily get PGs and hostels near High Court Para.
10 am – 6 pm.
But whenever I had some work, I could leave early after taking the permission.
