How you applied?
I applied for the internship by sending my CV along with covering letter at intern[at]singhvilaw.in
First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression
On the first day, I was introduced to all the associates and Mohit sir. Lawyers are extremely humble and Mr. Mohit sir has an interaction with every intern on the first day. The office has a very nice and very friendly environment.
Since it is a litigation firm, office work is done in the evenings from 6 into the night. You will be required to go to court in the morning at 10 AM with proper dress code.
The office is situated in a residential colony and you sit with other interns around a conference table and the working environment is very eased out.
Kind of work you get depends on you and you receive ample support from the associates and the head of the office.
Most importantly, this is one of the best office run by the first-generation lawyers in Jodhpur, they themselves are eager to teach and often learn along with you. Everyone is up for helping you with any doubt.
Main things in this office are the quality of work and you get good exposure to a wide variety of issues. It was my first internship but I was really wonderful and good experience. In my one month, I dealt with finding some cases laws on contract, land dispute and tax law issues. Most of the work involved research on different litigation matters and drafting of notices and replies. The office works on various civil writs, criminal writs and corporate matters as well as NCLT matters. You also get an opportunity to attend district court matters.
The latter part of the mainly involved reading the case files and some other office works. You may also get an opportunity to draft writs, which will be a big learning experience.
It was the wonderful experience and made me even more certain that I would be helpful for me and I really thankful especially to Mr. Mohit sir, Aishwarya Anand sir, Himanshu Choudhury sir and others associates
- Mr. Mohit sir encourages you to improve your skills and learn something new.
- Good-hearted Lawyers and willing to help you.
- Very good quality of work.
- Food-wise, everybody gets tea and snacks from Mohit sir’s home.
- Irregular Office timings.
- The office is a little far from the high court.
You get a stipend, it is depending on the quality of your work and I got Rs. 2000/-
Accommodation, commuting to the office
I stayed at my house so I did not face the accommodation problem. There are a lot of PGs nearly for interns needing accommodation.
Anything else, what you did to chill out, lesson learnt etc.
The office is very chilled and you can go to canteens in the High Court during the daytime. It was a very nice experience for me.
