Duration of internship and timings
May to June
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
On my first day I was asked to research about Wetlands Act of Kerala and Arbitration rules
I was also made to sit in 3 court sessions to acquaint with the adjournment process
Main features of the internship was researching for Hon’ble Justice regarding matters relating to day to day matters before the Court. We could also get familiarised with the High Court proceedings.
Work environment and people
The Court guards were very friendly and the personel assistant to the Justice was very helpful regarding the work assignment and completion. They were also flexible regarding the work hours.
The best thing about this internship was the additional time I got to interact personally with Justice and also the opportunity I got to directly understand the chamber works.
The only bad thing I found was the lack of time I got to see the arguments in the Court room.
There was no stipend
The biggest lesson I learnt is that I started reading Civil Rules of Practice. Justice Anu Sivaraman also provided with valuable details regarding practice in Courts.
Doing this internship I could also amplify my contacts in the High Court. I got a good start in the matter of Civil Rules of Practice.
Any Other Thing
Accommodation was in my own house
Office time was between 9 am to 5 pm.
