Name, College and Year:
Gulab Singh Choudhary, St. Wilfred’s College of Law, 2nd year.
Name of the organization:
203, 2nd floor, Sunny paradise, near Gopalpura Flyover, Tonk Road, Jaipur, Rajasthan 302018
I applied through mail at sdsalawyers[at]gmail.com and followed it up for confirmation. You can also directly visit the office for the internship with your CV.
Duration of internship:
30 days i.e. 6th February to 9th March.
10:30 am to 7:00 pm
First Day Experience:
No any formality as such. The day started at 10:30 am where I was supposed to reach the High Court and there I met the lawyers working in the firm.
During my time in the High Court, I observed the court proceedings relating to matters of the firm. After finishing with the same, I went to the office and read the files to be argued the next day.
Work and Environment:
The work environment was friendly and open. Considering the fact that it was my first law firm internship all the associates was patient and answered all my queries related to the matters.
Mr. Rajendra Prasad was also easily approachable.
During the internship, I was exposed to the practicality of court proceedings. The versatility of the firm also helped me in increasing my exposure. The main focus of the firm is essentially civil law, revenue, criminal, arbitration etc.
As an intern, I regularly visited the High Court in order to observe court proceedings and learn from them.
The diverse kinds of cases that came to the firm were the main reason that made the internship absolutely worthwhile since it gave me the opportunity to gain experience in the most crucial areas of laws.
It was a learning-based environment, where I was able to express my potential without any stress.
There were no negatives about the organization.
Litigation as a career requires extremely hard work, dedication, and sincerity which leads to no time for personal engagements but, this is the harsh reality one needs to admit.
Moreover, it’s not all about the knowledge of the law but the apt and accurate application of the same, in order to be a successful litigating advocate.
Showing that you are passionate about the work, punctual and dedicated will make a lasting impression that could benefit you in the future when it comes to asking for a reference.
Internships can be a lot of fun, so relax, take it one step at a time, be calm and get to know the new people around you and enjoy yourself along with the internship.
Accommodation and Travel:
As a resident of Jaipur, I had to travel a fair distance to and fro every day. However, one could opt for a Paying Guest nearby if so desired.
No stipend. However, the experience was worth it.
