First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
When I reached the office on the very first day, I had an introduction with Deepak Sir who asked me few questions about me, my college and my studies. He, then called the other interns also (there were 4 others) in the chamber and assigned the work to all of us.
We were asked to research (case laws) on a customs matter so we went to the outside chamber where I had an introduction with the other interns and the associates working there.
Deepak Chauhan Sir is one of the finest Criminal lawyers in Jaipur. So, it helped me a lot to learn the very nuances of criminal law and its practice in this internship.
I got a chance to witness the proceedings of some of the most highlighted cases of Jaipur such as BMW hit and run case, Hotel BELLACASA case, etc.
We were supposed to find out the case laws, draft different petitions and applications (bails, etc.) and witness the court proceedings which really helped us to learn a lot about the criminal law.
Work environment and people
The working environment of the office was amazing. The senior associates used to guide us, teach us and were like our mentors and the junior associates made us feel like their friends. They all were very supporting and caring and thus, in total it was a confidence booster environment.
For me on this internship criminal law was fun. The way you read a file, how to cross examine, how to argue, how to handle the policeman and how to treat the clients, all these kinds of practical knowledge I learnt from here. Thus, I was enjoying working here under the patronage of Deepak Sir and the other associates.
There were no bad things that ever happened to me on this internship.
Given a chance in future I would like to intern here again.
The biggest lesson that I learnt from this internship is that risk is a compulsory stoppage in the journey of success and one who crosses this with courage and confidence, then he achieves what he desires.
Overall Rating 9
I have my residence in Jaipur, but for outsiders, accommodation is easily available at reasonable rates in Jaipur.
