How did you apply?

I got this internship through the application procedure. You can e-mail your CV at team[at]legesjurisassociates.com.

First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression

I was welcomed warmly by one of the associates of the firm, Ms. Nisha, who gave me a brief of the type of work I would be assigned and the kind of work expected out of me. On the first day, I was given cases to read, for which I had to file Counters/Reply.

At Leges Juris, it is made very clear as to what kind of work will be required from you on the very first day itself and you will be given work on the same day too.

Main Tasks

Preparing brief and notes on cases, drafting reply or counters, drafting complaints. I was taken to Court very frequently depending on the cases listed on that particular day. I visited the District courts, High Court, Supreme Court and I also got to visit the Central Administrative Tribunal as well as the ESIC Headquarters.

In the Courts, I got to observe examinations-in-chief, cross-examinations, final arguments and other proceedings too. I was taught how to file a case in the High Court and inspect a file on judicial record.

The partners of the firm, Adv. V.K.Singh and Adv. Prachi Singh file cases under the Employees’ State Insurance Act, so a lot of the cases in the court were related to the same.

Good Things

Through my internship experience, I got to learn about the practical application of the law in litigation which is extremely useful and necessary for any student who wishes to pursue litigation in the future.

The associate, Ms. Nisha was extremely helpful and guided the interns at all instances and the
partners were also exceedingly helpful.

Bad Things

There are no bad things.
