First Day Formalities Initial Impressions
On the very first day of my internship, I had the opportunity to visit various district courts and observed the proceedings. All the interns were being introduced to the decorum that should be maintained in the courtrooms. I was also introduced to all the other interns and other associates of the firm. After reaching office in the evening, all the interns were also guided about how the files should be arranged, how to make brief notes, list of dates and events of the cases and so on.
I found all the associates of the firm very helping, cooperative and a phenomenal mentor. Tasks for the day were properly organised and were followed by extreme punctuality every day.
To visit various district courts of Delhi, The Delhi High Court, Mediation Centre, Arbitration centre, various tribunals like NCLAT, for hearing and after that we had to read that case and understand the proceedings of the same. Our Senior also used to guide all the interns in the matters with which they were dealing. They used to ensure that we were able to understand the procedure and learn at our best.
We were instructed to read files and to create a list of dates and events upon which we used to brief and describe our understandings of the case to our seniors and also we used to have group discussions regarding various aspects of the case.
I also got chance to contribute in a research paper. We were also individually assigned topics relating to different laws for instance evidence act, etc and were instructed to study and present a whole brief upon the assigned topics in the firm.
Apart from this, every day at the office every intern had to read the files that were listed for the next day in various courts, flag them, make a list of dates and events, update its orders and then understand the proceedings in the same case next day.
We were also given opportunities to interact with the clients of the firm and discuss their respective cases with them, though which could have our first experience of client counselling.
Yes. On the discretion of the firm.
I live in Gurgaon so I managed to commute by metro.
I have learned a lot from this internship. Associates always used to give us every detail of the case and the proceedings. The best thing was all the associates and Sir used to ensure that we are clear with the basics of the provisions that we had to deal with in the cases.
Overall, it was a learning experience for me and one could get the exposure that they would want from this internship. All the interns, associates, and everyone was very friendly and ensured the involvement of everyone in the office, everyone had encouraged me at a different level.
