One can easily go to the office by metro exiting at Kailash Colony metro station on purple line and after that you can take an auto/rickshaw.
About the office:
The office is quite big and it houses two floors. The basement was the main area of operation and the first floor housed the conference room. The interns are provided with separate computer systems.
There are a total of three associates and one partner.
Duration of the internship programme:
1 month (5th May 2014 – 1st June 2014)
They had posted on Internshala about their requirement of interns. I had applied through the same.
I stay in Noida so I used to go by metro but one can easily get PG’s in the nearby area.
10.00 am to 7.00 pm, Monday to Saturday (Saturdays are half day till 2.00pm and 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month are offs)
First day impressions and formalities:
Well, when you enter the office, you get a warm welcome from the officials and the people out there are quite chilled and very friendly.
The first day was pretty light and no such work was allotted then. First day was basically meant to get friendly with the co-intern and the associates.
I was lucky enough to work directly under the Partner and was mainly involved in the incorporation of a company and drafting various agreements in relation to it like the MoA, AoA, filing of various eforms as per MCA, etc.
I had to do extensive research on various facets of the new companies act and was also given the task to draft documents in relation to the change in a registered office of a company from one state to another.
Other than this, I also had to prepare due diligence reports and legal opinions.
Work environment, people:
The environment of the office was very good and supportive. The Associates and the Partner were easily accessible.
They were very helpful and always ready to answer the queries. It provided a very healthy teaching and learning environment.
Best things about the internship:
The best part of the internship at Universal Legal was that one can learn a lot in that firm.
One gets very well acquainted with the practical aspects of the company law.
On very few days would a balance be maintained in the amount of work we got.
At times, we would be overloaded with work and even leave office at 8.30pm and at other times, we would be sitting idle.
What did you do to chill?
One can go to C-block market and there are very few food joints there. You can also go to M-block market in GK or travel to Nehru Place.
