First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
I think my first impression at the office Deputy Advocate General Mr. Ashutosh Singh Kachhawaha was good. I was fortunate enough to enter the office for the first time when discussion regarding writs was at process.
There aren’t many first day formalities just the academic and extra-curricular details. Library of the Office of Advocate General is beside his office and library possesses books on Various fields, including the latest case reports from Supreme Courts, MP high Court and Few tribunals.
Main tasks were to find the case laws on the related matters.
Work environment and people
Staff of his office is very supportive and helpful. Office of the advocate general is in the premise of the High Court itself so it is easy to go and observe the related proceedings come back to office and research
Infrastructure of both high court and office is good. I think its worth interning there because you get works to do and appreciation afterwords when you give them results.
Nothing was bad as such. Accommodation is available nearby single rooms mainly with an average range of 3-5k.
No stipend but for sure there is huge enhancements in one’s knowledge
Preference in citing the case when there are various relevant cases for any matter for that purpose, how to file a petition, and art of persuasion.
Any Other Thing
