Work environment. People.
The staff at the firm is extremely cordial and the only time I felt like an intern was when I received my certificate.
The Partner who I was working with was extremely helpful and appreciative of my efforts. The overall environment in the firm was extremely friendly. The Associates were a mixed bunch of experienced as well as relatively new lawyers.
My Mentor also acted as a Counsel to other lawyers and hence interning with him ensured interaction with all the other lawyers and their clients. It was a great experience in terms of exposure to the profession.
The work given to be was pretty decent. I was never given any clerical work as in case of my previous internships.
The Jhangiani Narula and Associates office being located in Fort, there are awesome places around to chill.
