First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
The first time I entered the chamber, I presumed it to be a good big, warm office.
But contrary to my wishes, the office was in the house of the advocate, therefore the office was quite small.
So it was quite disappointing at first. But further the work load never made me realize those small things.
My main task in the office involved mainly research work. In the morning you are given the list of all the cases with their courtrooms that will be taken up and you are expected to be in each and every case’s proceeding and are supposed to note down all the details that you can.
Later after the court, when you reach office by yourself, you are given case files to read and later given a topic to research from that case file.
Work environment and people
Generally the maximum number of interns that are allowed to intern in the office are two and during my time I was the only one so it was difficult in the sense that there was no one to talk to as the associates will talk to you only when they will hand you the work, other times you don’t even exist for them.
Full guidance was given by sir as well his associates.
The travel that you had to do and that too yourself of going to court from office and from court to office and the fact that you get no reaction from associates for anything.
You should start your internship from a very grass root level, so that you get to know a lot.
