Name of the Lawyer
Mr. Sanjai Gandhi, Addl. Govt. Pleader High Court of Madras. President, IPR Attorney Association, Chennai
YMIA Building, Second Line Beach Road, 49 Moore Street, George Town, Chennai, 600001
I got the opportunity from my college itself (Placement Divison at my college). Candidates were shortlisted on the basis of their CVs. Internship applications (CV and covering letter) may be sent directly to [email protected] .
9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. On days when there was more work, I stayed in the office till 8:30-9:00 p.m.
Main Tasks and Experience
The main tasks assigned to me included research for everyday matters and attending court proceedings, researching for and mainly doing the practical work involved in IP registrations and court proceedings. Further drafted affidavits and counter affidavits, drafted official letters to various Govt. departments.
The experience was a very enriching one as I got to work on various specified areas of Intellectual Property laws with a lot of the work related to Geographical Indications and Trademarks and similar matters. The work was equally focused on research and kept me interested throughout my internship.
Although there were deadlines to be adhered to, the environment at the office was relatively stress-free. The interns have unique opportunities like attending a seminar focused on IP Laws and even get a chance to speak on a topic of their research.
Every intern has one dedicated major topic of research that they work on and submit a write-up of 3000 words. The research work is done in addition to the daily work that you are assigned.
The best part of the internship was that Sir personally attends to the interns on a daily basis and is very encouraging. Sir takes some classes that helps one understand the practical aspects and he regularly brushes up on our theory too. He is very humble in nature and when it comes to work he makes sure that all interns gain something or the other out of our internship here.
None according to me.
The office does not provide with accommodation, but you can seek recommendations from Sir about the same. Associates help you get accommodated here if you are from outside Chennai.
