How did you apply?
I sent an email with my CV and cover letter to info[at]rrlegal.co.
First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression
I was asked to report at 10:30 AM to the office, upon arrival there were no particular formalities. I was introduced to Priyanka Ma’am and she briefed me about the firm and introduced me to the Managing Partner Rajesh Sir and other Partners and
Associates of the firm. Initially, I was told to go through some files of ongoing cases to have a brief idea about them.
The firm’s office is pretty decent and is situated in a very calm place so there is no disturbance in your work. There is no doubt that the workplace is very professional and one could complete his work without having any difficulty.
The starting of my internship was more of an introduction basis. After being oriented about the working of the litigation firm, certain case files related to the areas of corporate recoveries which was basically related to Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code,
Commercial courts and Arbitration was given to me in order to have a brief idea about the same. My whole internship was a tenure of the great experience which included great practical exposure to the litigation field along with radical researching to help improve my researching skills.
Starting with my internship tenure I was told to research about certain topics such as:
Role of Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code in recoveries
Role of Arbitration in Recoveries
Role of Commercial Courts in Recoveries
Section 138 of negotiable instrument act
These topics were given to me respectively in the four consecutive weeks. So, basically my research skill was sharpened. Along with this I also got various chances to attend the certain hearings at National Company Law Tribunal, National Consumer
Dispute Redressal Commission, the High Court and various District courts which helped me in my practical exposure to the courtroom procedures. Along with this I also assisted the associates with the researching various case laws related to certain
issues such as:
If petition challenging summon is filed, can all subsequent orders can be quashed?
Does lease rent come under the operational debt under Insolvency and bankruptcy code?
Summarizing the whole tenure, I could say that the guidance provided under this internship really helped me sharpen my researching skills and my communication skills.
The best thing here was that the work environment was very friendly. Everyone in the firm is very friendly and helpful. You can ask any doubts whenever you want and everyone will be ready there to help you. The experience here was different than my
earlier internships as it emphasized on the practical aspects of law and its implementation.
The research which was done by me was on certain issues on which the lawyers argued in the courtroom and I had experienced to correlate my research with the actual appreciation by the judges and lawyers of the firm and the entire work
is practical and useful. Apart from it, you get snacks and tea every evening so hunger is not an issue here.
Though the firm initially did not promise any stipend however, after my sincere efforts and research I was given Rs. 3,500 as stipend after the completion of the internship.
Accommodation, commuting to the office
I was living at my aunt’s home at Khan Market. So the main communication was through the metro as it was cheap and reliable.
Anything else, what you did to chill out, lessons learnt etc
With an all-over experience, I could say that both the practical exposure along with our researching skill are necessary exponents for a lawyer’s career.
