Duration of internship
December 1,2013 to December 30th, 2013
The office looks no less than one of those shiny well built law firms that we all wanna work in.
There were no formalities as such but a small introduction session during the lunch break with Mr. Tulsi.
There was no division of teams as such and so whosoever wanted to work, could get it by approaching any of the associates.
The building is well furnished with a decent library.
I was generally given clerical and due diligence work since the time I interned, the courts had shut down for vacations.
There was also some research work some times or preparing a case brief for Mr. Tulsi.
Apart form that there wasn’t much work in the office to keep you occupied all the time.
The associates were friendly and helpful.
They were good to interact with.
Work environment was not very regulated as there were times we had absolutely nothing to do but watch random silly videos on the internet but when we did get work it was plenty to keep us busy throughout.
To sum up there were lazy days and busy days!
There are very few law firms where you get to interact with the senior most partner EVERYDAY!
Mr. Tulsi made it a point to join us all for lunch every day.
So the associates and interns used to sit with him and have lunch together.
It was one of the most remarkable things about the internship.
This was the time we utilized to interact with him as much as we could.
We were made to present debates and moots on various propositions and ongoing topics during the lunch hour and got feed back from the man himself!
And of course, the lunch served was pretty amazing too (everyday!).
I would have to say for people interested in litigating, this may not be the best place to be as there is not much scope to learn.
We had no access to files and did not get any major drafting work, that being the only negative point.
Public speaking is extremely important for a person aspiring to be a good lawyer. even more so if you want to get into litigation.
This internship was all about enhancing your public speaking and being aware of how to speak what you speak about.
If you are wanting to work here be prepared to undergo a lot of discussion sessions which will only prove to be beneficial in every way possible.
Any Other Thing
Not exactly a must intern place but good for a one time experience!
