I interned there for 4 weeks- 22nd November to 22nd December 2019.

I applied by sending my CV to Aditya Sir and Neha Ma’am both, after which I received the mail confirming the duration of the internship.

The main tasks which I got there were to read all the files of the various cases in the High Court, District Court and Railway Court of Jaipur and accordingly make briefcase notes. I was supposed to then read all the sections or the provisions included in the cases and look for relevant case laws which be useful in the arguments before the judges.
I also drafted various replies to legal notices and applications as necessary in various cases along with helping with the filing processes. I used to accompany Sir/Ma’am to the courts in the mornings and come to the office by evenings to work on the cases.
The timing of the entire day used to be from 9:30 am to 8:00 pm.
The environment of the office was very friendly. Aditya Sir and Neha Ma’am were very supportive and I learnt a lot from them. They were always eager to help us with our doubts so that we learn more. Also, the co-interns were great to work with. The location of the office was only 4 kilometres away from the High Court so commuting was never a problem. Also, for girls the timings used to flexible in the evenings as to make sure that going back to home at nights for us was safe enough. Everybody in the office used to have regular lunches together which was a good way to relax and communicate with each other.
All the interns were always asked to accompany Sir/Ma’am to courtrooms whenever they argued which helped us to understand as to how the matters have proceeded in the courts and we also grasped many technicalities of the courts which would have been otherwise impossible. This internship made me understand the vast difference between the theoretical knowledge in the classrooms and the practical knowledge in the courts.
I stayed at my place though since the location of the office is in a well-established area and in the vicinity of the High Court, finding a place to rent and commuting won’t be a problem. Also, many interns, along with me used to pool with Sir/Ma’am to the courts as we had no conveyance of our own.
