First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
I started interning at Murari Tiwari Associates for a month from 15th May 2019 to 15th June 2019 under the guidance of the Advocate Tripurari Tiwari.
It being a Litigation firm gave much apprehension regarding the Criminal, Civil and Family laws. Working with one of the leading chambers of Murari Tiwari Associates, it was indeed a Great Experience.
The office at defence colony, a Below Ground Floor (BGF) office was huge, well equipped and maintained, having a big separate round table for the interns, a conference room with a huge TV Screen and per 5-6 personal computers.
One could get the essence of the utmost dedication and diligence culture. The ambience holds you spell-bound and you can’t think of not working there.
Every day I was given a task regarding the Criminal, Civil and Family law. It could be anything, say, finding case laws, going through the judgments or the applications filed.
In the courts, we were been made aware about various departments be it the filing department, the office of oath commissioner etc. Also, I learned to draft certain documents.
I was asked to make a timeline and prepare case briefs and analyze them for some 30-40 files. I was asked to visit the various courts with my mentor associate.
I was also given a chance to do client counselling and to be the there along with my mentor when the client reaches the office to get the first-hand experience of real-life incidences or situations.
Also, we had this opportunity to prepare questions for the cross-examination of the next day, which turned out to be a very interesting task.
Hence I visited various Courts to accede to the proceedings. It was compulsory to visit for I was to answer questions regarding the same, once I reach office the next day.
Work environment and people
The working environment is very quite decent. Advocate Tripurari Tiwari was quite polite, friendly and a very considerate person, who would never hesitate to explain the same thing twice.
Advocate Murari Tiwari also is very humble and supportive who gathered up my confidence which further gave fruitful result in the end.
It is a place where I got a mixed bag of people from across various reputed institutions of the country including people from Christ University Bangalore, NLU Tamil Naidu, NLU Patiala and Amity Noida making the environment exciting and motivating to work more.
There was a separate space for students where the interns were supposed to read and work under the constant watch of seniors.
I got to learn ample of things practically which books often fail to teach.
Special classes were conducted to teach Family Law and also to acquire basic Drafting Skills which many of us did not know about and hence made the entire process of learning very easy.
The stipend was not provided. The certificate of excellence was given at the end of the internship.
That I can assimilate then and now is the working mechanism of Litigation bodies. I endured the practical vision of working in the field of Litigation for the future journey that I am to embark.
My cousins and I share a Flat in Laxmi Nagar, for which I had no such issues regarding accommodation.
