You can mail your CV with a cover letter to [email protected]. They are pretty quick with their responses. I had got a reply within a week.
Duration of internship and timings
January 2018 for a period of four weeks.
10 am to 7:30 pm, Monday to Saturday. They were pretty strict with the timings. Also, they did not allow to leave before 7:30 even though there was no work and one made a genuine request to leave early as it was winter.
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
The office is quite small and located in the basement but is spacious enough. They have three rooms with doors for the partners and cubicles in the open space for associates. Some of these desks/cubicles are empty and are assigned to the interns. One has to bring his/her own laptop.
There is a conference room and one lunch room where the entire office sits together to eat.
On my first day, I was asked to sit in the conference room and wait. After an hour, I was allotted my desk and was introduced to everybody. Sushant sir who is an associate there greeted me warmly and explained what the firm deals in and as an intern what all tasks I’ll have to undertake. The CEO Mr. Rajiv Kalra also met me and welcomed me to the firm.
The first day was a little slow as I did not get any work.
The firm specializes in telecommunication, media, technology, oil and gas matters and also takes up civil and criminal cases. I got both research and drafting work. Research was mainly related to telecommunication law, media law and criminal law.
I was fortunate to get drafting work also which is rare in most firms. I drafted written statements, rejoinders and writ petitions. Sushant sir specially taught me a lot about drafting. I also went to the Saket district court and Tis Hazari district for observing court proceedings.
Work environment, people
The work environment was chilled out mostly. The associates talked and hung out with each other often. The people were decent. The pantry staff was extremely polite.
The variety of work. Good co-interns. Plenty of eating options nearby.
I got drafting work here for the first time which was a new experience altogether. Court visits were also fun.
There wasn’t a lot of work. However, the work was sufficient to keep oneself occupied. But on many days I had no work in the evening and wanted to leave because it was winter and it became dark quite soon, but they did not allow me to leave before 7:30. Though no one was ever rude to me, I found this particular thing quite annoying.
Also one bad thing was that Saturdays were working.
I stayed in a PG in Lajpat Nagar area and travelled in the metro. You can look for affordable PGs in Laxminagar area also.
