How big was the office? Team strength?
Office is not that big like huge law firms but yes a proper office for a team of 6 people.
Application procedure. Internship contact details
I got into this internship through my resume. You are required to send your resume and within a week they will respond to your resume.
Duration in weeks. No. of days/week. Timings
My duration for internship was in the month of August starting from 1st and the timings are also very suitable. It was from 11-7. It was working for us on Saturdays as well.
Accommodation: how, where, how was it?
Since I stay in Mumbai, so accommodation for me was not a problem.
First impression. First day, formalities etc.
My first day was very chilled out, I didn’t have much work and the partners were also very chilled out. On the very first day I was taught so many things. There were no as such formalities. It had a very friendly environment.
The main task in which I was involved with was general corporate and Real Estate, I have also got drafting of various documents which I didn’t get in my previous internships. People who are interested in IPR, Corporate, Mergers & Acquisition, good exposure in this firm.
Work environment, people
My seniors were really good. They helped me a lot as I was not interested in Corporate law but working with this firm actually made me realize that corporate law can be interesting too.
The best thing which I learnt in this internship was that until and unless you don’t get any work pressure you will not be able to give your best, it actually taught me I should be patient and be focused on what I am doing.
Only bad thing was that no good food point over here.
What did you do to chill? Co-interns, colleagues
There were many good places near office to chill, even many Fridays we went with our associates also.
Unpaid internship, but you get to learn a lot.
Anything else you’d like to tell
Working in a small firm gives you more exposure and also helps to develop a keen interest in law more closely.
Learnt a lot of drafting in the fields of corporate laws, IPR and as well as real estate.
