First Day Impression
The office is very near to the Udyog Bhawan Metro Station, so please don’t hire an auto and waste your 30 bucks which I did.
On the first day of my internship, I reached quite early and waited for 30-40 minutes in the conference room. Then I was called at reception, where Mr. Hemant Kumar (administrative staff) asked me to show the copy of confirmation email.
Then they asked me to go to Karkardooma Court (East Delhi, District Court) and check for the listing of matter and report it to the associate. Then they asked me to go to the Hon’ble Supreme Court to get my entry passes done.
The chamber has good infrastructure with a decent library, Xerox machines, coffee machines, high-speed internet and access to SCC & Manupatra which makes your research work effective and efficient.
The formal introduction takes place during lunch where all the interns and associates eat together with Tulsi sir.
Interns were required to assist different associates on the going on cases. Usually, we made research from SCC Online, Manupatra, etc.
Interns are also required to report to different district courts in Delhi and also to the High Court and Supreme Court and check and make a note of important dates and points said in the court. Associates sometimes also allow you to take Passover and adjournments in their case.
Interns were also given work like- application and collection of certified order, compilation and typing of some orders.
The work environment is bit relaxed, but at times it becomes intimidating when associates yell and humiliate for the work not assigned to you.
The best thing for all the intern was the privilege to share the lunch table with Tulsi sir. The second best thing is moot.
The moot is held in a very relaxed manner during the lunch where all the associates and Tulsi sir during lunch hours will be listening to your arguments.
Tip for Moot: Do not see into your written submissions and plead, they lose interest in you, and preference is always given the first speaker (Moot Timings- during lunch, which goes maximum for 35 minutes inclusive of both petitioner and respondents).
One would find that some associates are unnecessarily arrogant and rude. So be prepared!!
Rs. 7,500 for one month
Cash Prize of Rs. 3,000 for the best speaker in the moot.
Anything else, what you did to chill out, lessons learnt etc
Though it is an opportunity one should not miss, but one should not have high expectations out of it, especially with respect to post-law school job prospects, or a PPO.
In your leisure time you can explore Tulsi’s sir huge library, can see his collection of car ranging from Jaguar, Lexus, Buick etc. You can also play with two dogs named ‘Nandi’ & ‘Rudra’ and can also take them on a walk in the evenings.
