Work environment and people

Personally I have really made very good friends and even today i am in touch with them. Office people were really very cooperative. You can go to them any time for whatever sort of doubt you have. They will always entertain you.

Maulika ma’am was of a good nature as well as a good mentor.

Best things

I feel that every law student should do this intenship once in the course of law.

Because what we study is all theoretical and when we really see those things gives us a practical knowledge.

Bad things

One thing what I felt was bad the travelling part. Waking up every morning and the looking for address and maps sometimes became a hectic job.


No stipend

Biggest Lessons

You will gain experience of working in a team.

As I am not a Delhite so took a PG at Laxmi Nagar. It is very easy to find a good pg at Delhi so don’t worry about getting a pg.
