First Day Formalities Initial Impressions
On the first day, I was supposed to report to the assigned mentor as each intern was assigned a Senior Associate as a mentor. As soon as the basic formalities were done, interns were introduced to all the lawyers of the Legal team, all of whom were pretty friendly.
Interns had to do research/drafting work for their respective mentors. However, if they had finished the assigned tasks they were free to ask other advocates for more work.
At the DLF Internship, most of the work was research-based and proof-reading. The research assignments covered a wide range of laws including Companies Act, 1956, Corporate Laws, Real Estate & Land Laws, Sate Rules related to tenancy.
Interns at DLF were assigned very limited drafting work. At most interns would get the chance to proof-read the lease deeds as well as the leave & license agreements and policies.
I was asked to report at around 10 a.m. and worked till 6 p.m. The good thing was that I was always busy with some work or the other, so, on the whole, I had a great experience. At the end of the internships, Certificates were given after the completion of internship.
I learned the importance of working in such a pace & busy environment through my internship at DLF. The long intellectual conversations with the associates and free coffee/tea any time of the day were the best things. Also, Cyber Hub is right around the corner so it was very convenient for me to go for a break.
The only bad thing about it was that for lunch, there was no such facility available except for a pantry on the same floor.
There are quite a few good PG’s available in DLF Phase 2 and it was really convenient to commute, the distance being just less than 2.5 kilometres.
The ambience of the office was great. All the employees had access to a coffee/tea machine which was actually nice considering how cold it was in the office. Co-interns often chilled out during lunch.
