First impression. First day, formalities etc.
In the morning when I reached they asked ask to accommodate in library where other fellow interns were present. we were asked to fill the personal details in the form and submit our CV.
Then we were assigned to our respective mentor under whom we had to work. Honestly, mentor hardly gives any work. internees have to roam in the office to get work or wait for the phone call in library by the associates from their offices.
The Firm for interns is easy-going and they are never straitjacketed in a particular division. The interns are also asked to draft relatively simple legal documents,research work is also assigned to the interns. You may also be asked for your opinion on certain legal issues involved in the drafting of legal documents and agreements or during research in particular task.
Work environment, people
Mornings are generally relaxed as the work start pouring in after noon. The pace picks up by then and reaches a crescendo by evening when it is a time to leave, then they ask you to work late till you complete it.
What did you do to chill?
The impressive location of the office is one thing good. The moment you step out of office there is no limit to restaurants, bars and cafes in CP. There is a pantry in every floor of the office where you get hot tea/coffee as a refreshment.
