Application Process

I got in through a reference (Not sure if this comes under the header ‘Application Process’. However, I still had to submit a Cover Letter along with a hard copy of my CV to the Registrar.

First Day Formalities Initial Impressions

I was asked to report to the High Court premise by 10 on the first day and was asked to arrive at the respective courtroom.

Later, Dushyant Sir (PS to HMJ Vibhu Bakhru) introduced me to the court staff and the Law Researchers. I was asked to bring 2 passport size photos and my CV for the Entry Pass.

I was asked to sit in the courtroom with other co-interns to have a first-hand experience of the arguments.

Main Tasks

Main tasks included attending daily hearings and making short notes on the same. We also did due diligence of the daily orders and judgements (if any).

Assisted the Chamber and the LRs with research work. Sir had the Writ Petition (Civil) roster, thus, the work was mainly of civil nature.

We were also asked to prepare the factual matrix of the judgements that were to be pronounced and were also given a judgement writing task (just as a judgement writing competition).

Good Things

The first-hand experience of attending the hearings and hearing the finest of arguments by reputed lawyers. Learning court craft through observations. Friendly and cordial LRs. The High Court canteen.

Fortunately, friendly co-interns, flexible timings and access to the Judges’ Library. Also got to see a lot of college friends during the day whom I had not seen in so many days.

Bad Things

The judicial internship was an enriching experience. I didn’t find anything bad.


No stipend

Accommodation Commute

I reside in Delhi only so I commuted via the metro.

Other Info

You see how the other side of the legal fraternity works. I realised that you have to work according to the judge in front of whom you are presenting the case.
