First Day Formalities Initial Impressions

The office is quite good with plush clientele, the decor is aesthetically pleasing, with Wi-Fi Facilities, Library and the rooms are equipped with air conditioning system as well.

The interns are added on a Whatsapp group on which every information regarding the reporting time and the place to report (Courts) is shared. I was taught how to draft applications and pleadings. I did my complete research work on the first day and submitted on time.

Main Tasks

The main tasks included mostly the drafting & research work on family matters since it is a Family Law practise and observed court proceedings.

I also observed court proceedings in Tees Hazari Court, Patiala House Court, District Court Saket and Delhi High Court and The Mediation Proceedings in SAMADHAN, The Delhi High Court’s Mediation and Conciliation Centre and also at The Delhi Mediation Centre in Patiala House Court.

The best part about attending the court proceedings was watching Malavika Ma’am argue in the court. The work environment is good and is quite relaxed. The associates are cordial yet some of them aren’t but sometimes you have to adjust to the situation and manage somehow. Sometimes you’ll have to insist on asking for work.

Good Things

The best things were observing the court proceedings in the Delhi High Court and various District courts in Delhi and watching Sir argue.

During the Internship, I learnt a lot of practical things important in Litigation. Observing the Mediation Proceedings was an amazing experience but after observing the proceedings, I believe that the lawyers should help their clients legally as well as emotionally.

Bad Things

Nothing bad

Stipend

No stipend
