Best things

The best thing about this internship was that, I actually got a chance to see the real working of the system. It was very informative.

Bad things

Sometimes there was no coordination between the groups, so we had to waste our time because of the other members.


No stipend

Biggest Lessons

Since I did this internship in my first year of law school, it was very fascinating for me to see the actual working of the various systems.


I have relatives in Delhi so I was staying with them.
