Duration of internship and timings

10th May, 2014 – 10th June, 2014

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

The first impression was really very fascinating as it was my first internship and the way Vishwarup sir briefed me about the working in the office was really good. I just needed to give him the Bonafide letter given by my college and I was good to go.

He had his office setup in his home so it was really comfortable and cozy there with all the amenities which a good law office do possess. The library and case record room was a bonus of this internship as he had a great collection of legal books and case laws.

Main tasks

I was assigned to visit the court along him everyday and listen him and other good lawyers argue in front of the judges.

He even advised me to note down certain important case laws and even taught me how to see the cause list.

Mainly I was assigned for the first two weeks of observing by getting used to the working of the Allahabad High court. All the elements in litigation was later dealt with me by him.

Work environment and people

The work environment was that of warmth and home like feeling. I could freely ask questions from him and even advise him on various issues. It was both friendly and professional.

Best things

The best thing were the practical things which he taught me as a lawyer which cannot be learnt from a book.

I was given free lunch everyday at his home which was very delicious.

He introduced me to a numerous judges and senior advocates. He mentioned various funny incidents which were concerned to the working in the high court.

Bad things

The majority crowd in the High court was really ill-mannered and not at all cooperative. If Sir could have helped me with legal drafting then it would have been nice. Apart from these issues it was a very good internship.



Biggest Lessons

The biggest lessons which I got was that litigation is a tough task and without the right knowledge, approach and contacts it is not easy to survive in litigation. But by this internship, I was able to know the various complications arising out of litigation.
