Sending in the resume, followed by an interview.

First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression

We were instructed to report at 27, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Marg, Delhi on 1st July 2019 where an orientation cum introductory session was there in which we were briefed about the whole internship program followed by a lecture on Gender Issues.

Infrastructure was quite research-friendly with an air-conditioned office. We also get the opportunity to visit the Indian Law Institute library for our research purpose.

Moreover, each research project is supervised by the expertise and experienced advocates and law professors.

Main tasks

Since I choose the Aviation law project, so our research was based on the basics of Aviation w.r.t. ICAO, IATA, Bilateral air agreements, Comparative Aviation law scenarios etc. But, for the month of June, we prepared a report on the Status of Passenger Rights in India.

Good things

I choose aviation law because it was quite an unconventional field with many challenging and interesting sub-parts. Since this was my first research internship experience, so I learnt many basics and new things regarding the conduction of research. My research team student head was quite friendly and he made us learnt different things apart from the research.

My teammates were hardworking and friendly. We shared a good time with each other together. Also, we used to have regular guest lectures on the topics like- Right to Information, Environment law, Labour laws, Gender sensitization, Criminal law etc. Notes were also provided on a daily basis.

Bad things

No bad things as such except the weather conditions in Delhi.
