Duration of internship and timings

June – August 2014 (about 6 weeks), Morning 9 A.M. to 1 P.M., then post lunch at about 4 P.M., till about 7:30 P.M. Timings could vary as per the work load during the week. However, flexibility allowed wherever some genuine reason is involved.

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

The office is easily accessible and is located in a residential area where there is no problem of parking vehicles etc. By virtue of it’s proximity to the market area, it can be said to be perfectly located.

First impression was amazing, the office has a very positive vibe. There were hardly any formalities, everything was taken care of.

I was allocated my desk next to a junior advocate which helped me interact and get comfortable with the premises and the work on the very first day.

Infrastructure is newly built and impeccable – individual desks, enough lighting, research area (desktops with internet connection, printers, et al) conference room, library etc., all these facilities are available.

There is a small kitchenette which houses all the basic facilities of tea, coffee etc.

Main tasks

The main task as an intern primarily revolved around reading case laws and researching. Analysing the case and the relevant law related to it your own perspective was one of the regular tasks to be performed.

There was a lot of reading involved and the main job was to study case laws thoroughly and come up with certain rebuttal arguments or replies wherever required, on the basis of your understanding of the law.

One also had to find certain related judgments which could augment and improve the arguments in a particular case.

Work environment and people

The work environment was very pleasant as the office was a lively and pleasant place to be at. There was sufficient understanding among the entire staff and things were done timely and as per the plan.

The next day schedules and cases were discussed well in advance on the previous day and work was allocated accordingly. Court visits were efficiently managed, depending upon the urgency of the matters at hand.

The client visits in the evenings kept the momentum going.

Co-workers ensured to maintain a very amicable environment. There was a lot of learning which I would attribute to them and there was no feeling of superiority or inferiority between the lawyers and the interns.

Everyone worked cohesively, like a team.

Best things

The infrastructure and the attitude of the co – workers really made it a pleasant experience.

The welcoming nature of the lawyer and his openness to your questions and queries made the experience worth it.

Bad things

Being left behind during other lawyers’ court visits could make it difficult to pass time.


No stipend during my internship.

Biggest Lessons

It is very essential to be able to identify the right out of the wrong; thus focusing on the grey areas of law. People have their hopes hanging upon you, so it is very essential to be true to this noble profession.

One must always be prepared to answer the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ of a question.

Practical knowledge of the intricacies involved in litigation is crucial to be able to survive in this profession.

A Fail-proof 6 Step Method

💬 Comments

  1. Such high level of intolerance. Threat on free speech and expression. Infact, even i feel that this review is less of a review and more of an advertisement

  2. False review. 99 % of things mentioned here do not exist. I was here some time back and had terrible experience. Not recommended for training at all. Go for an NGO or some other better lawyer.

    1. We strongly refute and challenge the comment made aforesaid, as false, misleading, slanderous and defamatory. if we were to know the identity of this person, we would sue him and call upon him to prove his comment. the person making this comment never came nor ever visited our chambers, otherwise he would not have made such a comment. or we invite him to come to our chambers and verify the facts personally which he has made in all irresponsible and careless manner. if he has the guts let him or her reveal their identity, so that se can expose him that he never ever visited our chambers. We are receiving interns regularly and we endeavour to provide best possible assistance to them. may be our facilities and assistance is not the best, but we do make best efforts and would continue to make best efforts to assist our junior colleagues to the best of our ability and competence. as on today there are 7 to 8 people working in our chambers and we have a very healthy, congenial, rich and charged work atmosphere. anyone is invited to have a visit and personally ascertain as to whether the insinuations made in this comment are correct or not. less said the better about the authenticity and genuineness of this comment of anonymous person, who does not wish to come on record. i do not say that we are the best, and are flawless. but we are willing learners and are willing to rectify our mistakes.

  3. We all learn and grow together in this challenging and otherwise very laudable noble profession. an intern teaches us many things and we are always bestowed with fresh ideas and remain more and more creative while interacting with an intern.
    infact many a times due to sheer smartness, the intern can show you the minute points which might have been missed out by us in routine. i am very much indebted to person who interned with our office and thereafter wrote a nice and encouraging piece on our office and wish her all the best. the areas lacking on our part are very positively pointed out and these have been noted to be rectified in future. we assure that we shall come up to expectations of aspiring young law graduates and shall be able to assist them in taking up the challenges facing their careers. wishing all the best. looking forward for many more aspiring young ones as interns and juniors to come and join us and to take off in their lives.
