Duration of internship and timings
30th June, 2016 – 27th July, 2016
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
The office was near to my house so it was very convenient for me to reach the office. I was early as all the assistants were not present.
Then came a person who introduced me to all the assistants of the office and what work they used to do. He told me about the working of the office and about the office hours.
I was made aware with the local level proceedings of the court. I was taught to file bailment plea and other correspondences to be made to authorities involved in the case.
Work environment and people
I had great time working in the office. Mr. Desai is a very humble person and treated everyone with dignity. Assistants were very affable and helpful. Jokes were cracked and there was a very friendly environment in the office.
Office had a small library sort of thing which was of great help. And tea breaks in the office were the best parts of office.
All the proceedings and filing is done in regional language which was the only impediment in this internship.
I learned a lot from this internship. I interacted with many people and visited courts for the first time.
I did this internship in my hometown.
I had to reach the office at 10 in the morning and then go to the court with all the assistants around 11:30. I had to see the proceedings of the court till 2.
In the evening I had to give my report about that day’s proceedings to one of the assistant. Evening office hours were 6-8:30 but rarely I had to stay late to complete the work.
