About the office
Mrs. Monika Arora has a chamber in High Court and an office in Malviya Nagar, New Delhi. She has associates Mr. Kushal Sharma, Mr. Harsh Ahuja, and others who are very knowledgeable, affable and eager to share their legal wisdom with interns.
10:00 am to 5:00 pm on weekdays. Weekend remains off but if you are enthusiastic about work you might get called to the office on Saturdays.
Every day you have to report High Court at 10:00 am, there Mr. Dhiren will assist you. Though he is a clerk but very knowledgeable. He is one who will make you learn basic court work. He’ll tell what all you have to do today and will hand over the cause list according to which you have to sit in courtrooms to observe court proceedings.
Mr. Kushal Sharma and Mr. Harsh Ahuja will tell you about the cases which you will be going to observe that day. They might also ask to explain the summary of the case or draft the petition as well.
I was also given an opportunity to attend mediation, appear before the court and met senior advocates.
Remain focused while working you will get to learn many things during the period of internship.
The work environment I got here I would have got nowhere. The associates I met here Kushal sir and Harsh sir are extremely affable I have learned so many things from them. They are very serious about the work, they might scold you if you made a mistake but when it comes to party no one can become the companion like them.
The time i had spent with him made me learn so many things about the court and outside of the court. I am thankful to him to curb the lacunae in me with legal knowledge. Such a erudite personality he has.
Of course, listening ma’am arguing against other senior advocates like Kapil Sibal and Colin Gonsalves was also the part of best thing during the internship.
Internship under her, listening to her the way she speaks, the lesson she gives you regarding litigation in itself is a stipend.
