Application Process with contact details
I got the internship through a contact.
One can apply legally by filling the details given on their website which is alayalegal.com.
The average waiting time for getting internship is 6-8 months.
Duration of internship and timings
June 11, 2016- July 10, 2016.
Minimum time period is 3 weeks but I did a 4 week extensive internship.
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
First day of internship, They will make you feel comfortable by making you sit in their conference room for completing the basic formalities and will treat you very friendly.
The receptionist is very polite and will help you a lot. Office is divided in 3 parts, one for litigation team one for corporate and one for other staff members. You will be provided with a cubical to work from.
1. Research for cases (on shops and establishment act to motor vehicle act to workmen’s compensation fund. Topics are endless).
2. Compilation of laws (preparing a document on MS Excel).
3. Finding answers for the legal queries their client have.
4. Working for their monthly legal tablet (last work they will give you).
Work environment and people
Work environment is very serious. They do not tolerate unprofessionalism but they do provide space for your learning and creativity.
Also they want smart-ass corporate oriented students you can act and behave and work like that only.
They will make you understand the importance of extensive research. By the end of internship you will be able to claim that your research skills have gone better and this will boast your confidence.
Also you will be different problems every time, so a basic introduction will also be there.
As you are not use to of working for 10-6 desk job, it will be very tiring in the initial days.
And the professional attitude can also sometimes led to hesitation and lack of confidence for students who are new to that environment.
No stipend. Bear your own expences.
Be prepared for the tough competition in this career. Corporate sector might look very fancy from outside but it a boring desk job and only your hardwork and patience can get you what you are looking for.
PG is a big problem there as it is a very posh locality. You will find a good PG near green park. I stayed in my college hostel only.
Again making it very professional. They will ask you to work from 10:30 am-6 pm. But you are supposed to finish your work. If you fail in doing that, then forget the “office timings”.
You have to stick to the deadlines.
