How big was the office? Team strength?
Application procedure. Internship contact details
You call them, speak to the receptionist and she asks you to meet her with your CV and a bona-fide certificate from your college and then allots a date. Very simple.
Duration in weeks. No. of days/week. Timings
4 weeks. 5 days a week. Flexible timings. Flexible as in, you can walk in and walk out as you please, they don’t really care.
Accommodation: how, where, how was it?
Traveled from home, but many PGs in that area.
First impression. First day, formalities etc.
Beautiful office, one of the fanciest I’ve seen. No formalities at all. You just need a CV and a bona fide certificate from your college.
Sit in the air conditioned library, chill with the other interns, read a book, play computer games if you get really bored.
Work environment, people
None of the associates talk to the interns, or even look at the interns for that matter. They’re extremely indifferent. Some people just stop turning up after a few days, but they don’t even seem to notice.
It’s supposed to be one of the top 3 law firms in Bangalore, so you get to put their fancy name on your CV.
You get to sit in a well equipped library all day and read books uninterrupted.
And you get to meet some nice people as there are always loads of students interning there.
You learn nothing. There is no work given at all, so it’s a waste of time, money and energy.
What did you do to chill? Co-interns, colleagues
Cunningham Road, Brigade Road, MG Road, Commercial Street etc are all very close by, so many places to chill at.
If you wanna learn, don’t intern at a big, fancy law firm. Choose a small law firm with young-ish lawyers.
