Duration of internship
4 weeks (4th November – 2nd December 2019)
How you applied?
A few seniors from college had recommended the internship. I applied by sending my CV and a cover letter to pkd.pramod[at]gmail.com
First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression
On the first day, I introduced myself to the associates, who are amazingly supportive and highly accessible. The office is well furnished, where the interns share the workplace with the associates.
There are no mechanical and generic formalities as such. You are just expected to be at the office on the date when the internship commences.
A significant part of the internship is spent in visiting courts (which is highly encouraged by Mr. Dubey himself.) researching, preparing case notes and providing your inputs to the associates on various cases, which are indeed considered.
The office environment is highly conducive and everyone around has a tremendous work ethic. If one is enthusiastic about criminal law and criminal investigation, in particular, this is probably one of the best offices to be in Delhi, where the associates are highly disciplined and dedicated, which is further strengthened by the aura which Mr. Pramod Dubey has.
At the same time, the associates are very accessible and amicable, despite the humungous amount of workload they have every single day.
Accommodation and Commuting to the office
One has to arrange their own accommodation. reaching the office can easily be done via Delhi Metro. The office is at walking distance from Lajpat Nagar metro station.
