How did you apply?

I applied through sending my CV along with Cover Letter on the Email: hr[at]indialawoffices.com

First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression

On my first day, I was asked to fill out a form where I need to fill out some basic credentials about my academics, the period for which I want to do an internship and then I was introduced a little bit about the rules and regulations of the office. Moreover, on my first day I was given to read a case and to make its synopsis by going through the case and its proceedings thoroughly which was based on the Delhi Rent Control Act.

Main tasks

My work includes doing research on various case laws to be given as a reference while filing a petition or appeal before the court. Sometimes I was also asked to write legal Articles on some topics and to draft the notices.

Good things

The best thing about the firm is their flexible timings, i.e. 9:30 to 6:30 and their professional behaviour. Moreover, they don’t even burden interns with plenty of work like other law firms usually do.

They don’t hire interns to unburden their work but they actually hire interns to let the interns improve their skills and to help them to gain some practical knowledge of the law. This was my 4th internship and believe me it was the best internship I have ever experienced, they will really treat you very professionally.

Bad things

I didn’t find anything bad during my Internship

Stipend

Rs 3500/-

Accommodation, commuting to office

The Office is located quite near to South Ex Metro Station. So, you can easily take a Pg in Lajpat Nagar or South Extension.

Anything else, what you did to chill out, lessons learnt etc

I have improved my research and drafting skills a lot through this internship.
