Name, College and Year of Study

Divyanshu Joshi, Shri Ramswaroop Memorial University, 3rd Year

Name of Organization and Address

Allahabad High Court Mediation & Conciliation Center, High Court of Judicature at Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh.

Manner of Application

I went to the mediation and conciliation centre with a recommendation letter from college and my identity proof. I was given an application form which was to be filled and signed by me.

Duration of Internship

The internship was of 1 week from 8th July 2019 to 15th July

First Day Impression and Main Tasks

On the first day, the officials there gave us knowledge about the process of negotiations and mediations. We were also told about the benefits of mediation and also how to make an internship report.

The main task for us was to sit in the room where mediation was done. We were introduced to the parties and the mediators, who were advocates of the High Court, especially trained to conduct mediation activities. Each day 15-20 cases were observed by us and we had to prepare a short summary of each case.

Good Things

The workplace was very neat and tidy as well as very peaceful. The advocates there were friendly and helpful.

Bad Things

The timing of our work was 3 pm to 5 pm on weekdays and 11 am to 2 pm on weekends which was never too comfortable for any of the interns there.


No stipend is given to the interns.

Accommodation and Commuting to Office

Since I live in Allahabad, I had no problem with visiting the Court which was a distance of 4 kilometres from my place. For those who and not residents of Allahabad, a number of PGs and Hostels are available near the High Court.
