First impression and first-day formalities
On my first day, I was supposed to reach office directly. One of the associates took an informal interview/ introduction wherein he asked me a few questions about the topics that I was interested and also about my previous internship experiences. He informed me that I was allowed to get involved in the matters that I particularly felt interested in.
After attending his matters at the court, Mr. Pardeep Dhingra sir, the partner of the firm personally spoke to me and briefed me how the work is done.
On the first day, I was told that I will have to send an update every day, about the work that I was allotted and whether I had completed. I was informed that I have to maintain a chart of my weekly performance which will be reviewed by Pardeep Sir himself. Also, you are required to bring your own laptop.
The main tasks that I was given were research on various propositions of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code. I was allowed to go through the case files entirely to understand the case better and research accordingly. I would assist the associates in the daily court hearings at the District Courts, High Court and tribunals like NCLT, NCLAT.
The best thing was that the work environment was very friendly and helpful. All the associates were so easy to approach and did not hesitate in explaining anything twice or thrice and also clarified any doubts that I came across with.
Also, Pardeep Sir made sure to speak to the interns on a weekly basis and took inputs about our experiences. He also sometimes told us short motivational stories to build up our morale.
Another good thing was that, if I was interested in attending a court hearing of any matter which I was interested in, I could request the associate who was handling such matter to let me assist them to that hearing.
None except that sometimes we won’t get network on our phones as the office is on the lower ground floor. But, they provided access to WiFi.
