The best way to reach the office is via metro. After getting off at Malviya Nagar metro station, you can take a shared auto to the court.
You have to send your internship application along with your CV suneetguptaadv[at]gmail.com.
Duration of internship and timings:
Duration: 01/07/19 to 28/07/19
Timing: 09:30 am to 4:00pm.
All interns were required to report at 9:30 a.m. Some of us arrived a little early, so we were told to wait in Sir’s chamber.
On the first day, Sir arrived at around 9:30 a.m. and asked each intern to introduce herself/himself individually. Sir then went on to explain a bit about what the internship would be like, and what our daily routine would be. His pleasing personality instantly put all the interns at ease, and after a short conversation with him, it really didn’t seem like he was meeting us all for the first time!
Thereafter, I went to court with Suneet sir for a case. After the work of the case was done, then I was given a research work was given by Suneet sir.
To visit various courts of Delhi for hearing and after completion of that one has to brief about the case.
I was given various case studies to read, apart from the several files kept separately as part of the internship program. I attended several client interactions. I learnt a lot about how to actually deal with big shot clients.
Watching the actual court proceedings made me realize that the courts and case dealings are not as glamorous as it is made to look in movies!
Maybe I’m not the best person to tell where to stay but I can definitely tell you where not to stay. Do not stay in Saket. There are hardly any good PG’s.
You can get good accommodation in Malviya Nagar and Chattarpur area.
The work environment is very professional. Sir is extremely helpful, considerate, an amazing motivator and obviously extremely knowledgeable. All the associates are very friendly and always guide the students.
The work environment is really positive and that’s because of Suneet sir, who makes the interns learn the working of litigation properly.
I’d just say that if you love to research and you want to know things in different fields of law, this place is for you provided that you have enough zeal to learn new skills.
Here, interns get to have a chance to express their views about any related case in the chamber, during which Suneet sir tends to discuss case details.
The learning, the courtroom experience, friendly judges and policemen, Saket Select City Walk and the knowledge of where-to-eat in Delhi.
If one is at the budding stage of his law career, this internship is highly recommendable. You get to learn the basics which any other lawyer may or may not invest in teaching you.
We were given the opportunity to look into several cases, research the same. We got the opportunity to visit several courts in Delhi which helped us enhance our knowledge a lot. We got draft certain legal documents.
The last thing is that internship can be a lot of fun, so relax and it’s a healthy environment.
I was made to realise that all that we study in our law course is not helpful if we are aloof from its practical application.
Moreover, it is important that we have a stronghold on a particular subject before applying it and asking questions is the way to do that. Your questions are always welcomed at the firm.
I also learnt a lot regarding how to deal with clients and expand your network. I was made to understand that every client has to be dealt with uniquely as no two clients or cases are the same.
