The First Day
I joined office from 1st of July, by that time the courts didn’t reopen so on the very first day we were asked to report to the office directly by 5 p.m.
After reaching the office Sir met all the interns and had an introductory session, he also briefed us about the kind of work he was engaged into and how we had to function for the month. It was more of a warm-up session on the first day. All the interns were also briefed about how the files were arranged, how to make brief notes, dates and events of the cases.
To visit various courts, Tribunals, Mediation Centre, Arbitration centre of Delhi for hearing and after completion of that one has to brief about the case. Sir used to cross-check whether we were able to understand the procedure and the various aspects of the case.
Every day each intern had to read at least one file listed for the next day and update its orders, flag them, make brief notes with a list of date and events and research on the point.
Apart from this, the interns were given several other files (major disputes) kept separately as part of the internship program. I attended several client interactions. I also prepared questions for cross-examination. There used to be intense research work to do, drafting work.
This was my first litigation internship and had a wonderful experience. One gets the entire opportunity to take part in each and every sphere of the work.
Sir ensures your involvement in the office from client meeting to cross-examination, filing of fresh suits, drafting. His zeal to teach us was immense, which even encouraged us to work freely.
Sir is extremely helpful, considerate, an amazing motivator and obviously extremely knowledgeable. All the associates are very friendly and always guide the students.
Other than work, one gets to chill a lot even with sir and the associates.
