Duration of Internship
My internship duration was 30 days i.e 20th may-20th June. But you can intern as per your convenience for 15 days/21 days/30 days or more than that.
First day Formalities and Infrastructure
The first day we were asked to read 5 cases and write the synopsis.
The work environment is not so strict so for the first timers Legal Aid Services is the best place to intern.
The infrastructure is moderate.
There are two offices.
The main office is on K.S Roy road near the high court and the other office is in Karnani Estate, Kalamandir. That is the main office of Justice D.K. Basu.
Our tasks were to write the synopsis of 25 cases which were basically matrimonial cases and financial disputes.
We were asked to make a power point presentation of a bare act. I was asked to make the presentation on The Environment Protection Act.
After that I was assigned with drafting a financial dispute case. I got a chance to see family counselling process.
We got the chance of visiting Calcutta High Court, Family Court and Criminal Court.
Work environment is not strict at all. On top of that you will get the chance of working with Justice D.K Basu who will help you in understanding every nook and cranny of family counselling.
In legal aid services you will get friendly people who will not only help you in expanding your knowledge but also in your work.
The best thing about legal aid services is getting the chance of working with one of the most respected judges in India i.e D.K. Basu.
