4 months. Office timings are on an average, 10 AM to 8:30 PM for interns with the first Saturday of the month being a working day.
I was designated to work with the corporate team. The corporate team is divided into two teams – Advisory and the Transaction team. Worked with both teams on a wide range of matters.
Work was interesting and involved challenging questions of law. Associates were amiable and helpful. A lot of the associates are authorities in Corporate Law and take immense care in cultivating a healthy learning environment for budding young lawyers.
Applied to the HR Department. They were very prompt and confirmed my internship with the Corporate Team.
The office is located in Bangalore’s Central Business District. A lot of time is saved on the commute with Ola and Uber offering cheaper alternatives to public transport and auto-rickshaws. Make sure you leave early to avoid Bangalore’s peak traffic!
The pantry is the place to be when you do not want to eat out. Evening snacks are the highlight of the evening and go well with conversation and coffee. They have a ‘Snack of the Day’ system with a different snack everyday.
A lot of fun and games. We were sorted into teams and had a treasure hunt organized during Christmas Day with different stages in the hunt. Included memorizing objects to dumb charades with proverbs!
They were fun filled and definitely reminded me of all the good things about Bangalore. In addition, there was a motivational talk by a well renowned Life Coach that was very helpful and she addressed a lot of challenges that people face and how to resolve them effectively.
I was fortunate to witness Indus Law celebrating its 18th anniversary.
It always helps to have family in Bangalore. That way, you can save up on money usually spent on renting an apartment or paying guest accommodation.
Always check the property or PG out before renting it. Having a friend with you is very helpful.
Introductions were made and I was given my laptop on the first day. I got my first work assignment on the second day.
The most important thing is to establish a good rapport with your associates. A lot of work involved research on Private Equity, Securities, Competition Law and NBFCs.
I got an opportunity to work with partners on a lot of these matters. It was a privilege to work with them.
In addition, I assisted in drafting agreements and working on not-your-everyday compliance and regulatory challenges.
Regular presentations on contemporary topics in the presence of all the associates are definitely informative. I find it useful to carry a notebook and a pen to jot down information during discussion. The associates take an active interest in the internship program. Definitely one of the best internships programs in the country.
