Intern Details


Name of Organisation, Location, Team Strength

High Court Justice, Allahabad High Court, Lucknow Bench, Lucknow

Application Process

I got an opportunity to work with the High Court Justice, through an internal contact.

Duration of internship and timings

The internship went on for a period of four weeks and the timings were from 10 AM in the morning and it extended till the time the Lordship was in his chamber.

But usually I got free by 5.30 PM.

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

On the very first day I met with the Senior Registrar, High Court and there I was asked to write an application addressing my Lordship stating my interest to intern under him for a period of one month.

Then that application was taken to my Lordship for his consent and he readily gave his consent. After that I was asked to write another application which was for the issuance of Gate Pass for the entry to the High Court.

Main tasks

I usually read the case files and was eve asked my Lordship to prepare case briefs. I even attended court sessions where my lordship delivered judgments.

Besides, I did some office work which was asked by the PS of my Lordship. My Lordship even asked me to read Supreme Court Cases and note down the important points.

Work environment and people

The chamber of my Lordship consisted of his PS, PA and a Law Clerk Trainee.

All the staff members were very helpful and cleared every doubt I had. I just did not feel nervous at any time while talking to them.

Best things

The best thing was of course getting an opportunity to intern under such a great personality.

One always wonders how the chamber of a judge looks like, what all people sit there and how is the work carried out, I got to see them all and I’m grateful to my Lordship in every single way for giving me an opportunity to witness this.

Bad things

The bad thing there was not enough work to do and I usually sat idle.


No Stipend.

Biggest Lessons

Becoming a great personality is not an overnight task, one needs to work like a slave to achieve that position.
