First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
There was no first day formalities. I was introduced to the staff properly and the helped me with work.
There was another partner of my advocate, Mr. Amanpreet.
Since it was district court internship, I learned many a lot about how to rob your client and how to get your work done.
Office was small.
I got to learn a lot of reality of how actually work is done in lower courts. My theoretical knowledge was no where applied there. Practically its totally different.
The first thing I learned was how to get your work done. There I realised money is the need of hour. Money can do a lot work for u.
I witnessed the examination of accused and other witnesses. The way my boss did arguments was awesome. He handled criminal as well as civil cases. Since it was Amritsar district, you get a lot of drugs cases. All the work was litigation related and I attended various court hearings and client meetings.
Work environment and people
The work environment was great and the people were very knowledgeable. Advocates imparted great knowledge regarding actual condition of district and session courts.
Court visits and client meetings.
I didn’t find anything bad, since everything was reality.
Internships at lower courts are far more knowledgeable than higher courts. You get the raw taste of application of laws and how to start with your litigation.
