Internship Experience @ DSK Legal Mumbai: Application Only Via Contacts, Strict Work Environment


Name of Organisation, Location city, Team Strength

DSK Legal, Mumbai

Application Process with contact details

DSK Legal is known for not really accepting applications directly. I had applied through a contact. All my other co-interns had come through a contact as well. Though you could apply directly and try your luck.

Duration of internship and timings

1st November, 2015 – 14th December, 2015. (6 weeks)

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

The office is spread out on a single floor. They don’t have the entire floor though. The office is fairly new so its nice. The interns sit in a separate area which is not part of the main office (this area has been given out to another organisation).

As usual there was a problem with the number of laptops available and we only got them after a day which we had to share.

The HR would introduce you to all the Associates in your team on the first day. Pretty formal and strict.

I did not find the associates very welcoming.

Main tasks

I was in the corporate team. The main task was mostly research and also a filing, printing and proof reading work.

Work environment and people

The work environment is not very friendly. The associates would barely talk to the interns or interact with them. I did not like the work environment much.

Best things

It is a reputed firm.



Biggest Lessons

To do as you are commanded by the Associates without asking any questions and to complete it immediately even if a timeline is not given.

Office Timings

10 – 6.

But I would usually leave at around 8-9.
