Chambers of Advocate Ravi Bhushan Thakuri, Siliguri Sub-divisional Court, West Bengal
Application Process with contact details
Advocate sir was a family friend and so my uncle contacted to him regarding my internship.
His email id is firstname.lastname@example.org
Mr. Thakuri is a very supportive person and shall encourage any student studying law in West Bengal to intern with him.
Duration of internship and timings
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
Siliguri being a place where Bengali is predominantly spoken language, all the formalities and court proceedings took place in Bengali which affected my learning process since I rarely know how to speak in Bengali.
Language barrier was the biggest con.
I was taught the basics of law and how the court proceedings worked.
Since I was in the first year, I hardly knew anything so it was a bit difficult and boring in the beginning but after a few days, I started understanding the basics of court proceedings and so it was okay after all.
Work environment and people
Advocate Sir was a very kind and a refined gentleman always ready to help and support me. He translated bengali drafts into English for me so that I could understand and learn how it is drafted.
The working environment was very supportive and nice.
Language barrier was the biggest problem since all the work and court proceedings are done in bengali.
Law is something that needs a lot of research and without one it is useless to approach the court.
Any Other Thing
Siliguri is my home town so went to his chambers on my own.
I usually went to his office in the morning at 10 AM and stayed with him till 5 in the evening.
