Duration of Internship and Time
My summer internship at Aadhya Legal was for 4 weeks (July 3, 2019-July 31, 2019).
Interns should purportedly reach the office by 10 AM and are allowed to leave the office by 6:30 PM The office operates 6 days a week (From Monday to Saturday).
In case the work is on a priority basis, the interns were asked to stay back for some time.
Aadhya Legal has an astounding work environment. We were provided with wide opportunities to be engaged with different matters pertaining to Intellectual Property and Arbitration. Apart from this, we were permitted to visit various District Courts and the High Court of Delhi.
The said visit gave us an insight into the various matters listed before the courts which facilitated us to have a better understanding of the disputes.
First Day Impression
Since it was my first day of internship, I tried to reach the office on time. Interns were asked to fill in their details in the office register along with their respective period of internship at the firm. After completing the formalities, every intern was allotted a separate work-station.
Aadhya Legal is a multidisciplinary law firm dealing in all sorts of litigation and commercial matters. I was primarily assigned all sorts of IP, Food Safety and Security and other Arbitration matters.
I was engaged with the IP Associate Ms. Aakriti Sood who specializes in Intellectual Property, Commercial Disputes and Contracts.
During the tenure of my internship (4 weeks), I gained exposure to client meetings related to IP and Designs. Moreover, I was handed over the Due
Diligence work and drafted Statement of Claims for Arbitration matters. I also assisted in the new label compliances related to Food Safety and Security Regulations that came into effect from July 1, 2019.
As previously stated, the work environment of the firm was amiable and the Associates readily supported us. This is an apt place to understand things since one tends to gain a lot of exposure in the firm’s spectacular environment.
The Managing Partner of the firm, Advocate Amit Tyagi is the keystone of the firm. He is a good mentor and always encourages genuine efforts made to accomplish the tasks allotted. He often took out some time from his busy schedule so as to facilitate out of the box thinking.
