On the very first day of my internship, when I reached there, I had a small introduction with sir. I introduced him my name, college name and year. After that Sir gave me a document, which is related to the Hindu Succession Act, 1956, to read. I took it and made some legal points as per HSA, 1956. after reading this file, I had a discussion with sir on it. I told him some points which I observed after reading the file. There is no application formality filled by me.
The main tasks were usually legal research under Civil Laws and Court Visits. There is no particular predecided things were there. It depends on time to time and case to case. I did some time research, reading files, prepare brief notes.
The associate and owner of the law firm were very helpful. If I was facing any problems related to anything, I went to him and ask them, they helped me to clear my doubts. they helped me a lot during this month.
Not only I did official work but also had productive career-oriented discussions with great associates and they shared their experiences of litigation with us as well.
I did not find any bad things there.
Accommodation and Commuting
I was already living near the north campus. so, I commuted through the metro.
The one thing I have learnt there that the productivity of the whole internship depends on you. It does really matter that how you want to learn or not because when I was there, some times I felt that I had no work, I went to sir and asked him that sir if you have any work, give me.
After that, they gave me work and I used to do it. You can also do it that when you are feeling free, go and read the files and make your own formate of drafting because it will help you to make understand how to draft cases, written statement, legal notice etc. The legal field, which I observed, is all about reading the cases, files etc.
