First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
When I reached the chambers for the first time, I was very excited for the internship and it took 2-3 days for me to understand the manner of dealing with clients.
In totality it was nice.
We were required to prepare case summaries and to do drafting.
We were also required to attend court proceedings.
During the internship I got to know about the manner in which the civil and criminal cases proceed in the district courts.
Work environment and people
The environment was nice but sometimes a large number of clients used to turn up at the same time, which sometimes made it difficult to deal with.
The best thing was that all the cases were well organized and that the advocate gave equal time to all clients to discuss their problems and proceeded in an appropriate manner.
The clients were also cooperative.
I also got to learn from him the right and appropriate manner of dealing with clients.
As a first internship, it was overall a great experience. There was nothing in particular that could be pointed as bad. Instead of calling the few experiences of discomfort I would call them a lesson which taught me to be as much professional as possible in my work.
It was an unpaid internship.
The lesson that I learnt from their is that one should be hard-working and should work with enthusiasm in the field of law which is a very noble profession.
Any Other Thing
I also got to learn that in what manner the statements of the witnesses are recorded in a court.
