Interns are expected to report by 10:00 am in the morning and stay back till 8:00 pm. The timings are flexible and depending upon the work you have been assigned with you may have to stay back till late. It always depends on the sincerity of the intern. If you are least interested and you are there just for a certificate, no one will usually bother you.
Saturdays are full working days. The only holiday you would get is Sunday. However, work is play if you love working and I bet you would love working here.
First day of the internship
Kred-Jure has 4-5 interns interning together at the same time. I joined the office with 3 other interns. We were given our workstations and we had to carry our own laptops. There is no separate room for the interns and we were made to sit with the associates.
I had reached the office by 10:00 am and immediately I was assigned with research work. Later that day, I even got to draft a first motion.
To my utter surprise, I got all the first-hand work here including drafting important documents for the live matters as well as researching on some intriguing propositions. The associates often take the interns with them to the courts including Supreme Court, High Court and other District Courts.
The work environment is super friendly and comfortable. Everyone, right from the junior associates to the senior associates to the partners are extremely understanding and friendly.
Almost every day, the associates offered to buy lunch for all the interns and also offered us to go out with them to have lunch.
If there is any doubt, the interns can easily clarify the doubts with the associates or even the partners.
However, if any work has been assigned to you, you should complete it by the given time diligently, and in case you are not able to do so, you should inform the associate who has assigned the work to you regarding the delay. Never take work and then sleep on it.
Even if you are expected to know something but you do not know about it, you can always ask the associates because nobody would ever judge you for anything there.
My advice is to work as much as you can and even ask for work if you are not specifically assigned any work. Speaking from experience, I have never learned as much as I learned at Kred-Jure. A major portion of my knowledge in law can easily be attributed to interning at this office.
Interning with Kred-Jure was a great opportunity for me to learn and grow and I tried to utilize the opportunity as much as I could.
There are many PGs in Lajpat Nagar as well as in Greater Kailash where you can easily put up and find accommodation.
One can easily get decent rooms for ₹7000-₹8000 per month around the office.
The only key to work here and be acknowledged is hard-work, sincerity and good conduct. I would personally recommend everyone to intern here at least once because my experience of working here was, to be honest, better than working at a Tier-1 firm.
