I interned from 4th May to 4th June, 2015, the timings were flexible and was mostly 10.00 am to 4.00 pm and then his chamber from 06:00 pm to 08:00 pm which is voluntary.

First Day Impression

The office is a pro Advocate Chamber installed with all the Law Books and the Service Acts  which are mainly in play in courts of Up.

Main Tasks

Main task was to accompany the Standing Counsel to hearings but Sir never minds you visiting the other Court rooms to hear different cases infact he used to tell me to visit some other court rooms  where he thought that there  was either an interesting case or an interesting lawyer .

He also supervised me in writing a Research paper tracing the 800 years History of Magna Carta.

Work Environment

Work environment is professional yet friendly. He always used to give us case files for the day which we were to analyse and discuss with him later in his chambers which he used to appreciate and also helped us widen our views and legal angle towards various cases.

Good Things

I had the privilege to be present in the hearing of a case of MLA Disqualification in course of which I met Advocate Brijesh Shukla and this is how we get to make contacts with other highly esteemed lawyers while interning in the Court.

I saw how arguments took place in various Courts as the lawyers deal with a variety of cases and judges deal with a variety of Lawyers.

One of the best things is that I made friends with Students of Different college  such as NUJS, RMLNLU and GLC Mumbai who were interning in the High Court.
