How did you apply?
I had heard about this law firm earlier through my friends. I visited their website ad thereafter, applied for the same by sending my CV along with covering letter at tcjurists[at]gmail.com
First Day formalities, Infrastructure, First impression
The first day I met Pradeep Sir at DRT. I found him a learned and seasoned advocate. He explained to me in detail as to how one should make their work rewarding and full of pleasure. In terse he developed in me a keen interest in the work I was about to undertake. It was a really motivating and good experience. I have learnt a lot from this internship. It was very helpful and also there was a good work environment.
I was given the task to read various case files, find out relevant law points and search out relevant judgments and case laws. This involved research work on certain topics and discussion with seniors there. I also read different sections from insolvency and bankruptcy code. I learnt about company operations and financials as there were many reasons for the poor performance of the company that led them to bankruptcy and ultimately to NCLT.
The best thing was the exposure I received while attending a court hearing at NCLT. Besides, the colleagues I met there took me to the high court and Lower court for attending the cases while they kept me explaining the nuances of the cases as well application of various sections of Law on different occasions. The biggest lesson I learnt was that hard work surely matters but not as much as strategic and smart work.
Overall I loved interning at TCJ. In future, if I get a chance, I would definitely intern here again.
In the hindsight, I feel that instead of so much of court fight it would be better to settle amicably and peacefully. While leaving the firm I felt bad that I could not prolong my internship period due to my limited holidays.
