I came to know about the firm through an online intership platform i.e. Internshala. I have submitted my internship application on internshala and got a reply for one to one interview at their office which is situated near Janakpuri metro station, New Delhi.
i went for one to one interview at their office with the hardcopy of my resume along with other documents. After the interview sir told me that i will soon get a reply regarding the same on either my email id or through the phone call.
Almost two weeks from my interview, I received a call from the office, they asked me to come to the office once more. Next day I visited the office and sir told me that I have selected for an internship and can join immediately.
First Day Formalities Initial Impressions
My summer internship was of one month and the work environment was good and even encouraged us to work more in such an environment. The office is opened 6 days a week (Monday to Saturday).
Interns were supposed to reach the office at 10 A.M. sharp and were allowed to leave the office by 6 P.M and if the work gets completed they were allowed to leave before the said time.
Since it was my first day of internship, I tried to reach the office before time as I don’t want to be late on the first day. Mr. Gaurav Tyagi the founder of the firm and also my mentor during the internship showed me the whole office i.e. the conference hall, library, cabins, pantry, work station and he allowed me my desk having a PC on which I was supposed to do my work.
The work environment of the office was amiable and associates were ready to help us. It is the best place to work in. Mr. Gaurav Tyagi sir is a knowledgeable person and always ready to guide us in the right direction. He used to teach moral values and professional ethics in between. Another perk of interning here is being part of the discussion with associates on the ongoing issues in courts.
Before this internship, I was never allowed to do the drafting work but in this internship drafting was my main task to perform and I learnt a lot about the format, procedure and the way in which the suits are drafted.
Another thing which I loved the most about this place/office was that all the interns and associate advocates do the lunch together, that was the most fun-loving part of the day when we all used to share our experiences. We all shared our lunch and sometimes we ordered food from outside also. Also, there was a tradition of cutting the cake as a farewell to the interns on the last day of their internship.
The main task is to assist sir and junior advocates working under him. I was also asked to do some research on the case and the important sections included in the particular case. The associates made us work on ongoing civil matters and criminal cases.
I was asked to do the drafting work like drafting of civil suits, written statements, legal notices, etc. Besides this, I learnt and performed some administrative task such as filing, assisting with the preparation of case files, scanning and attesting of files etc. The quality of work is great and I got to learn many things which will definitely help me in future.
I have nothing to label as bad things or bad experience.
Yes, the stipend was provided.
Accommodation and Commute
I am a Delhite so from my place to the office there’s a well-connected metro route. One can easily walk down from the Janakpuri metro station to the office as it is so close to the place.
This internship taught me to be punctual, always be sincere to your work. Stay loyal to your boss, to your mentor and be polite to everyone.
Try to build as many connections as you can and never say no to any work that is given to you, even if you don’t like the work but it will definitely make you learn something new.
