First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
Nothing much was asked to do at the first day.
I was just asked to visit the Rajasthan High Court in the morning and attend a list of Sir’s and the other advocate’s cases lined up for the day.
Just like the first day, I had to attend the Court proceeding in the morning, i.e. during the Court hours.
I was supposed to attend my Advocate’s matters in the Court and was free to sit in any other court room if free. (but such an opportunity was hardly ever awarded).
After this, I had a 2-hour break where I could go home, relax for a while and come back to the office this time to read the matter lined up for the next day.
Thus there were only two main tasks to be done.
Doubts, if any, arising from the reading of those files could cleared by asking any of the other advocates.
Work environment and people
Work environment was pretty good in the sense that no once really cared of what you did throughout the day.
Maybe once or twice someone would come up for a random check upon you but apart from that, absolutely nothing.
It was a very free internship with quite a bit to learn.
The library at sir’s office was a huge one and thus there was a lot to read during free time.
Covering a lot a distance twice a day with a very short break in between.
Constitutional law was one subject I learned the most here.
Apart from that, by visiting the High Court everyday, I understood a lot about the manner in which one is supposed to argue, learning from the court manners to the actual arguments.
