Duration of Internship and timings
February 24, 2016 – March 10, 2016
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
When the word Court comes to our minds, we definitely have a slightly different perspective of it than the real. Nevertheless, it was a usual impression.
I reached there we Permission letter from University, Bona fide and all the pre-requisite.
The concerned person explained us about the work, timings, rules etc and asked to start the day, showing the way to court after completing the formalities and introduced the lot with the Judges.
The infrastructure was no great and fancy building, but seemed like any other government office from both outside and inside.
Except, the courtroom which almost matched with the idea courtrooms we have thought or seen so far.
For a start, we were asked to read the bare act of Consume Protection act and go through it properly to have a slight hold on the subject.
After we finished that, we used to be given a case file on a regular basis, each day a new case, to conduct research, analysis and study on that particular case.
We were also allowed and asked to hear the proceedings of cases judged in the court.
Work environment and people
Interning directly under Hon’ble of the court was quite a deal, as per what I thought. But the experience has been a different one.
People there were really cooperative including Hon’ble Judge and other judges.
We used to have a small session of around 30 minutes with the stenographer of the office where he was supposed to teach us things and clear our doubts.
Moreover, Hon’ble judge took two general counselling session seperately on his own of all the 6 interns interning during that period. So the work environment and people were very convenient and friendly to work with/under.
The 15 days winter internship at District Consumer Form have been a great learning experience.
Given the friendly and cooperative environment, such able guidance and limited number of working hours, it would be hard to quote best things.
But the one thing that I thought was rare and best was the general counselling sessions held by Hon’ble Judge, it is necessary and required that we learn and inculcate values, decision making power, time management, professionalism in us, so much as its important to learn law and its subject.
There weren’t any such. Just that, I think we could be given more inclined and particular tasks/work during our internship.
Particular tasks demands for more focussed work which is the need of the hour at this point of time.
As students, who join University straight after college in a course like Integrated Law, we lack that professionalism of work place and have no or very less focus talking about work.
During my internship at District Consumer forum, this was one of the biggest lessons I learnt, inculcating professional values, meeting with the deadlines, working under authority, which is something one would require for the rest of their lives in every aspect.
Any Other Thing
It was in my hometown. 🙂
10 am in the morning to 4 in the evening.
