Duration of internship and timings

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
Amazing atmosphere. His juniors were very warm and welcoming. Had to fill my details in a journal maintained for interns by the office.
Visited the Income Tax Appellant Tribunal for three days and watched Mr. Datar, argue a case for Kalaignar TV.
I was also given the task of researching for a new book on E-Commerce which I have duly submitted.
I had the opportunity to do a small part in helping with the Constitution book which is due to be out in a few months. (Researching case laws, looking for errors in the foot notes)
I also visited the High Court of Madras on one occasion. I could witness the proceedings of two cases (Nokia/Kalaignar TV) and the manner in which the court worked.
Work environment and people
It was amazing.
It has taught me that in order to survive in this field, hard work is very necessary and also that time is of the essence. Utter and absolute commitment is required.
This internship has helped me in realizing the skills I lack. Skills, that are very important to sustain in the legal field. One such skill is time management. I could observe how efficiently the office worked and how everything was meticulously plan.
Any Other Thing
Traveled from home.
9:00 am – 6:00 pm
It was pretty relaxed.
