Senior advocate, KV Vishwanathan, Supreme Court, New Delhi. 4 associates working under him.
I had applied directly to sir on his mail id.
You need to send in your applications at least 4-5 months prior to your preferred dates.
Duration of internship and timings
4 weeks, April-May 2012.
Monday to Friday 10 am to 6:30 pm.
Saturdays 12 Noon to 6:30 pm.
Sir was very particular about the girls leaving sharp at 6:30 because travelling easily took about an hour and a half.
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
We were suppose to report to Sir’s chamber in the Supreme Court.
Thereafter his juniors guided us, got us a pass made and briefed us about Sir’s routine generally and also intimated us about the kind of work we will be expected to do.
I met Sir first while he was arguing and I was completely floored to see the precision and articulation with which he argued.
Since I was only in the first year, my work revolved around reading briefs, preparing case notes, list of dates etc.
I was also allowed to sit for conferences.
Every Saturday we had to meet sir in person and discuss with him every new thing we had learnt during the week.
Sometimes he would also give us specific topics to research on.
It was my first court visit and I was awestruck by the Supreme Court and all its glory.
Work environment and people
There were 4 associates working with Sir.
Each and every one of them was extremely helpful and co operative. They were keen to teach us.
You can be rest assured to always have enough work.
It was a very closely knit team and they always looked out for each other.
It was overwhelming to see how Sir managed to be so humble even after where he was.
Every evening, sir arranged snacks for everyone in the office.
It was on the house.
The filter coffee was amazing and we were at liberty to use the pantry as and when we wished.
Travelling in Delhi is very strenuous especially if you are not from the city.
Rs 7700/- and a Book on judgments by Krishna Iyer with a personal note.
Always remain grounded and if you’re travelling alone in Delhi be rest assured to meet all kinds of people.
