How did you apply?

You have to send your internship application, along with your CV to silverarchchambers@gmail.com. As they have many applications pending and they accommodate few people. So contact is necessary. In my case, I got the internship confirmation email through a reference.

First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression.

The chamber consists of 3 flats on the 4th floor of the building, where one flat is the library and the interns are supposed to be seated there. The library has a huge table where all the interns sit and work. On your first day, you’ll be given a form to fill specifying your internship duration and will be asked to attach your photo. Interns aren’t asked to bring their lunch as it is provided by the chambers. We got to interact with him almost every day during lunch as it is served in the same
room.

A coffee and a tea machine are available to have coffee whenever one wishes. All the interns sit at a huge table and work together if they aren’t at court.

Main tasks

Mostly research work which the associates give you. If the court is in session, you must get your pass made and attend court hearings. Every intern is supposed to submit their research work through electronic means, i.e., via e-mail. In my case, due to the fear of Coronavirus we could not get our passes made and we could not attend the court proceeding and then Lockdown was imposed and
then we did our assigned work from home.

Work environment

The work environment is good and the associates and the staff extremely nice and friendly. The associates are always ready and willing to help interns in their work. They also sometimes have fun with interns and tend to make the atmosphere light, yet healthy. If you have good luck, the pool of interns could be good. During my internship period, the co-interns were really very kind, humble, co-operative, and helpful. We used to enjoy ourselves a lot together.

Good things and bad things

The best thing was despite the heavy work schedule of Mr. Salman Sir he still managed to interact with the interns regularly. There are no bad things as such.

Stipend (if any)

Rs.10,000/-

Accommodation, commuting to the office

I stayed at State Bhawan (U.P BHAWAN). For travel, one can use the metro and get down at Mandi House and from there office is at 5 minutes walking distance.

Anything else? Like: what you did to chill out, lessons learnt etc.

Showing that you are passionate about the work, will make a lasting impression that could benefit you in the future when it comes to asking for a reference.
