First Day Formalities and Initial Impressions

On the first day, I reported to Mr Gulab Singh (P.S to the hon’ble ladyship) at his chamber. He then introduced me to the office staff. The chamber was well equipped with computers, books, printers and cupboards.

Good Things

The internship helped me get familiar with the judicial work, I got to learn about how a high court works, how advocates as learned counsels present their case submissions and how the cases are decided. I saw the practical application of laws.

Main Tasks

The main tasks were to attend and observe the court proceedings, noting down the facts and noteworthy points of the cases in brief and to definitely note down the judgement delivered. I got the privilege to sit and hear the proceedings near the Hon’ble ladyship.

Bad Things

Nothing bad as such.


No stipend

Accommodation Commute

Lucknow is my hometown so I stayed at my home, however one can get PG accommodation easily.

Other Info

One thing which I learnt during my internship was that if you work hard smartly you will develop the required legal acumen to succeed in life.
