How did you apply for the internship?
I applied to the internship to a referral from one of my friend’s parents, however, one could drop an email for an internship at the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression
On the very first day, we were asked to give an introduction about ourselves, told a bit about the office culture and were asked our areas of interest so that the work could be assigned to us accordingly.
We were briefed about the proceedings and functions of the law firm and the events and happenings in the courtroom.
We were also tested about our knowledge of the subjects we had studied in the previous semester(s).
Subsequently, were also introduced to our mentor whom we were supposed to research under and report to.
My main tasks included research, reviewing files and writing opinions and case briefs.
I had also been a witness to proceedings of their ongoing cases pertaining to civil and criminal law in the High Court of Delhi and pertaining to company law at the NCLT, Delhi.
In addition to that, I had also partaken in a client meeting.
The work environment was extremely fruitful, with supportive mentors. The work was divided equally among all interns and you could always reach out for more work if you’d like to.
There was a lot to learn and the key is to never shy away from asking for more work related to areas that you’re interested in.
The office timings were a boon to me, considering that I was not a native of New Delhi.
It was from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.
Apart from that, the work environment was extremely fulfilling to work. Appreciation was also given upon completion of tasks assigned.
For me, the personal issue was commuting.
If you’re a local, this should not be an issue for you.
Details about accommodation and commute
We would carpool with a friend of mine. However, the Delhi metro is also a feasible option.
You could get off at AIIMS station and then take an auto/cab to the office which is just 10 minutes away from the office.
Since we were staying for a month, we were staying at an Airbnb in Lajpat Nagar which was hardly 5 minutes away from the Lajpat Nagar Metro Station.
Another beautiful thing was the dining room in the office itself where one could bring their lunch and have their lunch in the said room. You could also visit restaurants nearby and had a break of 1 hour.
