First Day Formalities Initial Impressions

The first day will be an induction program about Chinese culture and traditions. Then you will be introduced to your respective teams. Everyone in the team is pretty young. Initially, I was very circumspect and cautious. But everyone seemed so nice and chilled out. There weren’t too many problems with bonding with them.

Main Tasks

My tasks were research on different aspects of the law. It started with a trademark search, then research on cases of competition law and arbitration. They won’t give you too much contract drafting in one month. Only vetting of a few contracts.

Good Things

They help you improve your research skills by showing you different techniques and styles of efficient and quick research. I learnt new ways of conducting a class search in trademarks. They provide breakfast and lunch on the house every day which is a real bonus.

Bad Things

Nothing as such.

Accommodation Commute

I stayed in a PG in Koramangala which is around 11 km away from the office, but the office provides a shuttle service to everyone so wasn’t much of an issue.
