Application Process with contact details
I interned under a lawyer, Advocate on record Mr. Kamal Mohan Gupta. I got this opportunity through a family acquaintance.
Duration of internship and timings
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
Infrastructure was royal.
Formalities, yes, get a check-in slip to enter the courtroom premises. Later thankfully, got the permanent slip. They require your id proof too.
First impression: I thought to myself ‘come on you will get to know and learn a lot from here’.
Case study, research related work like assignments, current affairs etc., courtroom proceedings: taking down notes, Legal discussions and other case related tasks.
Work environment and people
Talking about people, when you got to work in the Supreme Court of India you find highly professional people with sharp knowledge.
Work environment was acceptable specially at the legal discussion desk.
Courtrooms. They were entirely different from what we experienced in district courts. There was a decorum, discipline and every corner looked sophisticated.
Nothing. Life seemed to be tough there though.
No stipend. Just the certificate.
You need to learn a lot about life and law as well. So get off the couch and start working.
The place changed my outlook towards certain things, for the better of course.
Patience. We all know how much patience you require in the field of Law.
That’s all I can think of.
PG wasn’t required. I stay in the same city.
I was supposed to reach by 9:30 a.m and the court usually got over by 4 or 4:30 p.m.
Strict? Sir was flexible about the timings, depending on the work.
