Duration of internship and timings
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
I was asked to sit in the conference room, after which I was briefed by the HR, about basic rules and conduct to be maintained inside the office. I was also given a form, which I had to fill then and there only, along with a worksheet and the feedback form, which was to be submitted on the last day. Then, every intern was escorted to his/her workstation.
During my internship, I took work from every department possible, from IPR to International Commercial Arbitration. I was mainly asked to do research work regarding trademark registration, SEBI disclosures and FDI in Defence Sector.
Work environment and people
The work environment is very friendly and chilled out. Associates are always willing to give you work, regardless of how much have you actually studied in your law school.
It was my first internship, in my 2 years of law school. So, the experience was really good. I learned something new everyday.
Working in a law firm is a very serious affair and nothing can replace your hard-work.
I live in New Delhi, so I commuted daily via Metro till Jasola Apollo at the Violet Line. The office is a 5 minute rickshaw ride from the metro station.
Timings were 9:30 am to 6:30 pm. The management was very strict about the timings and interns were not allowed to leave before 6:30 pm.
