First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

We get an introduction with sir. He explains us our work and introduces to the office staff.

Gives a brief detail about the working of the courts and some basic guidelines I have to follow.

Main tasks

Main task was seeing the proceedings. Analyzing both sides in the case and preparing a report about the same.

There were some other works such as proof reading of the drafts. Meeting the clients with some senior and knowing the art of handling a client.

Work environment and people

Work environment was friendly. Sometimes sir himself would would sit with me to discuss my college life and discuss about what I should do in future so as to become a good lawyer.

Best things

Best thing about the internship was the guiding hand of sir at every step. Even if I made some mistakes I was taught how to do it correctly instead of being scolded for it.

Bad things

I went to a vacation bench hence I was not able to attend as much proceedings as I wanted to.



Biggest Lessons

Interning at Supreme Court was the biggest lesson. I learned the importance of being punctual. I knew that being late for even a minute mattered a lot. Working with such qualified lawyers was a pleasure .

I knew that actual lawyers are those who actually work in the court. Not those who join big corporates and do nothing to get a developed judicial system.

Any Other Thing

The courts canteen is quite cheap and it serves one of the best Thali.

Nimbu Pani Sharbat is a must try.


I have my house in Delhi. Lakshmi Nagar is a great place to live with cheap accommodation

Office Timings

Timings were from 10:00am to 2:00pm .

Sometimes the timing got extended if there was enough work load.
