One is expected to assist all the advocates in court and read multiple numbers of pleadings, judgments, and articles to increase your knowledge base. The internship is very much office based. The office insists on knowing your substantive law before you step into procedural law. They also take you on court visits, if you are willing enough.
Work Environment and People
Everyone in the office is kind and helpful. You can learn a lot from the clerk than from the lawyers. The office sees many numbers of labour cases and takes up legal aid amidst a busy schedule.
