First Day formalities, First Impression
I called Vaibhav Sir two days prior to the date of joining and was informed by the sir to reach the office by 2 pm. Vaibhav Sir introduced me to the other associates and the interns. Sir checked my CV and asked me a few questions regarding the kind of work I have done in my previous internships and certain concepts related to IPC.
He asked me about my field of interest and the area I would want to work on. He briefed me about the other areas of law they deal in. I was given research and drafting work on the same day.
I was given research work on diverse topics such as matrimonial law, insolvency and bankruptcy law, criminal law, corporate law, arbitration law, and consumer laws, etc. I was asked to draft a Police complaint, Application under Order VIII Rule 9 and RERA complaint.
I was asked to assist in drafting and filing for inspection of judicial files in various courts, and also drafted several Form D (proof of claim) under IBC. Sir also allowed us to make an appearance in the court to seek adjournments on his behalf.
Vaibhav Sir asked us to mutually decide 5 topics we would want to discuss with Sir by the end of the day. It not only lets us put forward our own point of view but also creates a scope for gaining more knowledge by the opinion of others. Apart from that, the work environment was great and all the associates were humble and approachable.
This internship also helped in enhancing and boosting my legal knowledge and litigation knowledge. It was one of the best internship experience so far in the number of things learned.
The best thing about this internship was the work which I was assigned was significant and this is the best feeling that the work in which you are contributing does help your senior in his arguments and you are doing significant contributions during your internship.
None except that there were comparatively lesser plug points to charge our laptops than the number of interns. So sometimes it was difficult for us to manage the same. However, the other plug points were on repair and might have been fixed by now.
I stayed in Malviya Nagar in a PG and travelled via metro to the office which is in GK1. However, the nearest metro station to the office is Kailash Colony (700-800m).
I am an army girl! In a barbie world! Keeper of 5 dogs. On a diet for now. Sometimes I might make punctuation mistakes, but I make up for it by bringing in a crore or two extra. What's more important, a misplaced comma, or a well-placed crore?
