How did you apply for the internship?
I was informed of an internship opportunity by a friend of mine and I applied for the internship offline by submitting my internship application at the DEEDS office.
First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression
I had to submit the accepted application to the person in-charge of the interns.
I was informed that the organisation aims to build a paralegal resource group to address women’s rights issues.
It also aids in promoting networks at the state level.
It also imparts developmental training to the marginalized groups that the NGO works with.
I was asked to visit courts and attend the proceedings.
I had to read enactments and the bare act along with the case laws and analyze them accordingly.
The work environment was very professional.
I could see the work they do, it created a difference in the lives of several women.
The NGO was well equipped and I was given a cubicle to work in.
No actual work was assigned to me directly.
I gained experience on field and first hand experience in the workings of the NGO for the betterment of women who have been marginalized.
I didn’t have an exposure I expected I would get as a legal intern.
Details about accommodation and commute
I commuted to the office daily from my home.
I would suggest any intern to do your research before interning at an NGO regarding the amount of exposure and first hand experience you can gain while working with them.
It is true for any internship you apply – as it will direct you to choose your internship wisely.
Moreover, it will help you career wise in assessing your interests.
