Duration in weeks. Timings.

This was a three week internship. 18th May – 6th June, 2015.

Accommodation: how and where was it?

Since I’m a resident of Kolkata, I stayed at home. However, there are plenty of PG and hostel accommodation options in Kolkata. One can take a flat on rent with the other interns too.

Main tasks.

The main tasks assigned to me were research based. 90% of the work was based on the Electricity Act.

Work environment. People.

Excellent and chilled out work environment. The lawyers at CESC are always ready to give you work and teach you if you have any doubts.

Moreover, as compared to my previous internship at a law firm, where the employees were dissatisfied, the CESC lawyers are extremely satisfied with their jobs.

Best things.

The internship gives you an in depth understanding of the electricity act, which is something not taught in the law school curriculum but it has a good scope of practice.

Other than that you get a glimpse into the working of in house lawyers in any company.


No stipend.
