First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression
The formalities are we should reach the office at that time. The office timings are from 12:00 noon till 8:00 PM. We should maintain the black and white dress code.
The office has a good working space and is well furnished. It has all the modern equipment necessary for working.
My first impression was that it was a workplace with a relaxed environment and that one would do well in this place if one showed enthusiasm and displayed initiative. In hindsight, it was accurate.
This firm mainly deals with patents and trademarks.
The work which we were assigned were:
- Research work on topics related to Intellectual Property Rights.
- Writing articles on diverse issues pertaining to IPR.
- Creating PowerPoint presentations on current topics of IPR.
- Carry out legal research from open media search, online databases, government departments, and law books
- Carry out desk/internet research to support policy reports and research studies
- Prepare briefing notes and analytical reports on legal, statutory and regulatory aspects.
A good learning experience as you actually gets to learn a lot of new things in the field of IPR.
The best thing about the firm for me was the kind of work that I got to do and the work culture. The Firm has a very warm and happy work environment. Everybody at Ligamine Solicitors & Consultants is very friendly and always willing to help.
There were none.
The firm has a discretionary stipend policy which is based on the performance of the intern.
Accommodation and commuting to the office
The firm is located in Sector 10A. I stayed in a Pg nearby the office. Finding Accommodation in the vicinity of the office is also quite convenient as the office is centrally located around which a number of options of stay are available.
You can avail Service apartments or PGs nearby.
Anything else, what you did to chill out, lessons learnt
The firm is preaching the ideas to be dedicated and for developing the passion and to learn the subject in-depth.
The office is located in Sector 10A which has some really nice restaurants. Also, there are multiple places to visit too.
I strongly recommend an internship at this firm to any law student seeking to pursue a career in intellectual property Rights, Rera services, Insolvency and Bankruptcy.
