Application Procedure

I applied via my College Internship and Placement Cell, but you can apply by mailing him your Cover Letter and CV on saravanarajapv@gmail.com. He has a diverse team of Interns and is an amazing mentor.

Objective

If you seek practical knowledge of litigation field, it becomes highly important to intern under a good lawyer. I applied under him because he is just the right and patient person to go to when it comes to gaining some hand on experience of litigation. The main reason behind such internship was to learn the proper manner in which the essential Supreme Court documents are drafted. 

First Day Formalities, Infrastructure, First Impression

First day formalities included agreeing to some Rules and Regulations followed by a draft submission to rightly gauge you drafting skills. Post the Draft Submission I had a telephonic conversation with him on which he gave me his feedback and was highly impressed. Later, in the day I was asked to join a Zoom Meeting in my formal and was asked to introduce myself to his team of interns. Sir, has always been very welcoming and a highly patient as well as knowledgeable person. 

Main Tasks

In the course of my internship, I got the opportunity to learn so many new things that I can confidently say no other Lawyer can teach me. Sir, has been a great mentor and firmly made me believe that ‘When mind is full of knowledge it is a storehouse, but When you share the same with other it becomes a lighthouse.’ He is also into reading some great non-fictional books and always comes up with different quotes and sayings from them in every interaction. 

My main tasks involved attending regular 07:45 PM meetings in formals to discuss the Assignment of the Day, drafting legal documents under his guidance and finding Grounds for SLPs, Writs, PILs etc. Researching on the cases and topics in news were also part of our work followed by interactive discussion in the meeting. He also asked us to prepare the case briefs of the current cases he was working on and on different topics based on issues relating to Criminal law, Civil law, Consumer Laws etc. Apart from this, he shared his knowledge he has gained over time with us by sharing some of his amazing lecture series on 4Ds to Success in Law Life, Timely Justice, Res Judicata etc. The best part about the work he assigned was that he made it seem equally interesting by giving assignments to watch movie like Tulsidas, writing briefs on Thiruvalluvar and Avvaiyar. One can never get bored with the amount of knowledge he has to offer. 

Work Environment 

The work environment was very harmonious and all the interns were asked to join the meeting in Formals which made even the virtual internship interesting. The interns belonged to different colleges and were worth having some amazing discussions.  All were very helpful and kind regarding everything. Each day, interns were asked to share their views and interact in a healthy discussion. Sir, was also very approachable and simply one call away. He was always willing to help and give suggestions. Moreover, he is very understanding to even grant you leave if needed.

Sir, was always ready to offer you work as per your demand etc.and interest too. His wide range to practice area offers the knowledge ranging from Criminal, Civil, Arbitration etc. Documentation as well as Understanding practical aspect of legal field is yet another perk offered under his guidance.
