Name, College, year:

Organization and address:
MV Kini and Company, Nandam-II, Tilak Marg, C-scheme, Jaipur.
Duration of internship:
How you applied:
Apply through the website of the firm.
First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression:
My first day started with a general introduction to all the associates and the office head, Mr. Vikas Soni and without wasting any time I was asked to assist one of the associates to the Debt Recovery Tribunal for a hearing.
On day two, I had a brief interaction with Mr. Soni and was asked about my interest areas and capabilities, I was assigned work accordingly.
I was assigned the litigation team, so the majority of my tasks ranged from assisting Mr. Soni to courts, research work and preparing case briefs.
I got to Research for on a variety of laws including arbitration law, industrial disputes, corporate laws etc.
The office is really punctual, you can find everyone at the office at sharp 9:30 AM and you too are expected to reach at the time, rather before.
Everyone at the office is extremely friendly and supportive; Mr. Soni himself is an extremely learned yet humble man and helped me understand the nuances of the law.
There is good quality work yet not too much work pressure and timings are also not very taxing and hence is overall pleasant working experience.
I got to assist and interact with senior associates which were also a unique learning experience in itself.
Accommodation, commuting to office:
I am from Jaipur so accommodation was not an issue. However, the location of the office is such that accommodation and commute would not be an issue for anyone. You can easily find PGs nearby.
Anything else, what you did to chill out, lessons learnt etc:
As I worked for matters in both lower and higher courts as well, I had a holistic learning experience. Interaction with highly skilled professionals also helped me improve in more ways than one.
The interns were allowed to leave the office at 7 pm and hence one would have a lot of time to chill in the evening and a lot of good places to eat nearby.
