First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression
On the first day, Sir asked me about the areas I’ve an interest in and my previous internship experiences. Sir gave me Commercial Courts Act to read and gave me a brief about the same and Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code. My first experience was positive as I interacted with other associates and clerk, they all were warm and welcoming.
Siddharth Sir is a practicing lawyer in Supreme Court, High Court as well as NCLT/NCLAT and NCDRC. His area of practice in fields of law are:
Litigation in SLP’s in Supreme Court, Appellate Jurisdiction and Original Jurisdiction in Supreme Court as well as High Court.
Corporate Insolvency, Securities, Debt recovery and other corporate-related matters.
Main task of the internship is to draft petitions, reply, making case notes, attend proceedings in various courts of Delhi. In the morning the interns have to directly reach to the court according to their listing of matters and from there to another court, if there’s any other matter listed or else to the office.
During Internship, I also got the clerical experience which I believe add up so much in learning the procedure. I filed SLP’s in Supreme Court, removed defects and filed applications in NCLT and High Court of Delhi.
The good thing about the internship is you will get a raw experience that how Advocates build up their career in litigation/practice. You’ll learn a lot as you’ll be involved first hand with Sir in the case.
Another positive thing is that associates and interns sit together and work alongside each other. Sir explained to me on various occasions how relief can be achieved in cases and gave practical advice which motivated me a lot to work in this field. I also got to attend conferences with senior lawyers such as Sr. Adv. Manish Singhvi, Sr. Adv. K.K. Sharma and Adv S.D. Salwan. Overall Experience was beneficial to me as I want to excel in the field of litigation.
There are no bad things as such.
