First Day Formalities Initial Impressions
This is my second internship in this office, on the first day I just asked for my work from an associate. Thereafter, I was made to sit with other interns, with whom I spent most of the time during the course of my internship.
Main tasks included mostly the research work and drafting pertaining to Ramjanambhoomi/Babri Masjid Case, insolvency and bankruptcy code, Company Law, Intellectual Property Rights, Constitutional Law, etc. One has to approach the associates to get work.
Every intern is supposed to submit their research work through electronic means, i.e., via e-mail. Apart from the research and drafting work, interns also attended the hearings in High Court as well as in the Supreme Court.
The work environment is really positive and makes the interns feel good about coming to work. The staff is nice and kind and Shamshad Sir and associates are very humble and friendly.
The associates are always ready and willing to help interns in their work. They also sometimes have fun with interns and tend to make the atmosphere light, yet healthy.
The best thing about this internship is that Shamshad Sir also offered lunch many times to associates and interns.
There are no bad things as such.
Accommodation and Commuting
The office is at walking distance from Jangpura Metro Station and Bhogal Bus Stand
Showing that you are passionate about the work, will make a lasting impression that could benefit you in the future when it comes to asking for a reference.
Internships can be a lot of fun, so relax, get to know the new people around you and enjoy yourself! Overall I found Shamshad Sir is a noble person with a kind heart.
