Jurisperitus Lex LLP, New Delhi-14.
It is located in Jangpura.
The application process was quite simple.
I had sent my CV and other details at firstname.lastname@example.org
As the required internship duration approached, I got a reply that my application has been accepted.
10th December, 2014 to 10th January, 2015.
The very first day, I reported at normal office time i.e. around 9:30-10 am. Then I met the Senior Advocate and she later introduced me to other advocates and solicitors at the firm.
The firm is located in Jangpura, which had 4 cabins, 1 conference room, 1 small library plus the room for interns and a separate area for junior lawyers. The firm includes 10-12 members including senior advocates, junior advocates and the clerk.
The senior advocate under whom I interned and also the associates gave me a lot of practical knowledge.
My main tasks were-
• Research work on Civil and Criminal cases.
• Drafted general applications.
• Drafted Consumer Complaints.
• Made notes and memos of pending Special Leave Petitions.
I also attended their Supreme Court matters twice.
The work environment was good. I used to have a specific deadline on each research work I was assigned.
The deadline could vary from the same day to the next day.
All the advocates were very cordial.
Ginger Tea! What one wants in the foggy and bone-chilling weather of Delhi!
Well, the tea breaks were really refreshing.
The main best thing was one could learn all sort of cases (whether civil or criminal).
There is a lot of practical knowledge which one can easily gain.
There were very less Supreme Court visits, where I looked forward to have more.
As they say, “Punctuality is the soul of business.”
What I observed was that all the senior as well as the junior advocates used to be at their cabin/desk at work with full energy.
