On my first day, all the interns including me were introduced to the partner of the firm Mr. Rajesh Begur and after having formal introduction, every intern was assigned with a mentor who will clear your doubts and make sure that you will be occupied with work at all time.
Since, I am a student of Government Law College, Mumbai; I did not have to go through trouble of finding place. But, one can check with Sevaniketan in byculla.
