Duration of internship and timings

20 Dec 2018 to 19 Jan 2019.

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

There was no such first impression as I only met clerks at the PUCL Office.

I was made to fill the internship diary and pay the amount. I was given a PUCL bulletin and some other papers to read. There is only one small room as office.

Main tasks

I was assigned many tasks through mail as I was not supposed to go to office daily but I could work from home.

The main tasks were Filing RTI, interviewing homeless people in Delhi, attending seminars and protests, attending court proceedings, attending classes given by N.D. Pancholi sir and Dr. Shalu Nigam mam.

The most important one was to write a RESEARCH PAPER on any legal topic.

Work environment and people

I met many NLU students and students of good private law colleges as well. Sir is very helpful, he was always ready to help us and entertain our queries.

Best things

Meeting new people, learning, working and depending on your own.

Bad things

There was no such bad things but one was that I was not supposed to go to office daily and there was no stipend.

Overall Rating



As I live in Laxmi Nagar I travelled by metro to Mayur Vihar Phase 1 and It is at a 5 min walking distance from there.
