6th December to 29th December 2017. The timings of the internship were usually 10 am to 7/8 pm.
However, flexible depending upon the nature and urgency of work you have.
First Impression, First Day Formalities, Infrastructure:
I met Mr Waheb Hussaini an associate to sir, on my first day at the Supreme Court. I was made to understand everything that they expect from me and the kind of work I would be getting for the duration of the internship in a very cordial manner.
There aren’t any formalities as such.
The office is in Basement and there is a common area where the interns, Associate and the clerk sits. Sir has a separate room with a very good collection of books. The library is an added advantage and worth a mention for having all kinds of books to get the feels for the Litigation.
I stayed at Delhi Stay, Kailash Colony, a PG which is 20 Minutes from the office.
The work included quality research on some very interesting current matters, drafting and vetting of the files before filling in the Supreme Court. I could not meet sir in the 1st week of my internship as he was busy with some arbitration and mediation work.
However, I was still entrusted with a lot of research work over phone calls on the regular basis as and when sir need any assistance for the 1st week of the internship.
In the later period of my internship, sir personally guided and made me understand what exactly he wanted me to research. I got to accompany him in some high profile matters and work on live matters on Trademark and Contract Acts which really broadened my understanding of these Laws.
Work Environment and People:
The work environment is very cordial. Sir is extremely professional and acts as a mentor whenever interns need any guidance. Sir actually listens to the interns and give due recognition for the work done. He was easily approachable in case of any query or doubt.
Extensive and quality research work in a professional manner.
Getting acknowledged or due recognition of the work done.
Collection of the books in the Library.
There isn’t anything bad, however, to take the most of this Internship I’d suggest doing when Supreme Court doesn’t have vacations.
