Duration of the internship and timings
4 weeks. 2nd July 2018- 31st July 2018. Timings weren’t fixed per se as long as interns do their work within the allotted time frame. However girls are given the privilege to leave a little early.
How big was the office? Team strength?
The office is big enough to accommodate 10-12 people. I had 7 co-interns. Even though sir sits separate from the interns, communicating with him was never difficult. The associates sit with the interns.
First impression. First day, formalities etc.
First day at sir’s office was good. I met sir’s associate, who assigned me my first task. Sir came to the office later in the evening, all the interns introduced themselves to sir, and sir was cordial. All the interns were asked about their previous internships and after that we were briefed about court proceedings and other important intricacies of it.
Main tasks as an intern included accompanying sir to various courts, researching on various topics, drafting and filing applications, other miscellaneous tasks. In the courts we mostly observed the pleadings and watched sir argue before the judges. Sir had researched arguments and took all the questions, thrown at him by the judges, head on.
The interns were not only restricted to research and drafting but some of us also dealt with the clients, which I don’t think is possible at a lot of firms.
Work environment and people
The work environment was pretty chilled out. Communicating with Sir is very easy and one can go up to him with their legal doubts at anytime, he brings one, logically, to their answer. The associates were more like helpful seniors because of whom my internship experience was even more enriching. Overall experience helped me broaden my horizons.
The quality of work that an intern gets is pretty good and the nature of associates and Fuzail sir provides a very conducive environment for the interns to work in.
