Name and Year

Anonymous

Name and Address

Office of Advocate Sahil Mahajan, Fort, Mumbai.

Duration: June 2017 – November 2018.

Infrastructure, First-day Formalities and First Impression

The office is compact with a good collection of law books. The interns are asked to report at 10.00 am and are required to bring their own laptop. Since the team is small, work is given as soon as you join.

I never found myself without work. Timings are usually 10 am – 7:30 pm but can be extended to 10:30 pm when there is a lot of work.

Main Tasks

The firm deals in Civil Litigation.

The main task involves research in matters involving Company Law, Hindu Marriage Act, Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, etc.

Interns start with basic drafting such as notices, affidavits, applications and is soon progressed to major drafting such as insolvency applications, suits, execution applications, writ petitions, 138 complaints, etc.

Interns visit the court on a daily basis. Once all hearings are over, work in the departments begins in the High Court, NCLT, Dindoshi Court, City Civil court, District Court, Thane and various others.

Good Things
  1. Research is always on random topics so can learn about different fields of law.
  2. The team is a small one which works as an advantage as for the interns as there is always work on hands.
  3. The Associates are helpful and approachable at all times.
  4. The interns are treated as a part of the firm and due credit is given to their work.
Bad Things

There are no bad things as such and even if any, the work environment and the atmosphere compensate for everything.

Stipend

Interns get a monthly stipend of Rs. 5000.

Accommodation and Commuting to the office

I live in Mumbai so accommodation was not a problem for me.

The firm is a 15-20 minute walk from the Churchgate Station and there are share cabs right outside the station which can drop one to the firm.
