First impression. First day, formalities etc.
I was asked to come to the High Court directly on the first day where I was supposed to meet Mr. Kaushal, clerk for High Court.
He explained me the work, formalities and how the court works and about Mohit Sir and his areas of practice.
Thereafter, I met Mohit sir, he greeted me very nicely and took my brief introduction.
The chief task assigned to interns is research oriented and the firm handled multiple areas of litigation.
The research included subject matters like taxation, intellectual property rights, contractual dispute, arbitration matters, civil matters, criminal matters, property disputes etc.
Apart from the research work, they gave me some drafting work as well.
The research means not only to surf the internet, but to find out the relevant content and write it down.
Firm believes in perfection and that reflects how you understand the matter and brief it shortly to the associate in your own words.
The availability of legal databases such as Manupatra and library in the office makes the work convenient.
There were Court visits as well which helped me to understand practical and ground reality of litigation in different hierarchy of judiciary which really assisted me in choosing the field of law that I am looking forward in my near future
