It’s a very simple procedure one has to email his resume with cover letter on [email protected] at least 45 days before.
I applied and got reply within a week. Depending on your CV and vacancy, acceptance mail is replied.
Duration of internship and timings
Office timings are 9:30 to 6:30 which are not flexible. Discipline is appreciated in office. It’s a six day working office with 2nd Saturday off.
I did my internship in the period 12th May- 10th June, 2014.
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
First day: On reaching office, I had to fill a form with my general information. After that research work was provided. One has to submit research work by evening by sending an email and later personally addressing sir.
There are two separate offices- main office and branch office which is just on other side of road. Interns sit in branch office which has nice infrastructure.
Environment is very healthy and formal. The best part is interns are guided properly and every query is sorted leaving no discrepancy in ones mind.
On reaching office, the first impression was great. I was asked to wait in conference hall, and it was a great feeling.
Every day a new research work is given. They ask you for your field of interest on that basis work is assigned.
On day 2, a presentation topic is allotted which is supposed to be presented on 24th day. A 24-25 word document also needs to be submitted.
I was allotted “Procedure on Section 138 of Negotiable Instrument Act”. The expectations are that presentation should have more practical approach. I tried by best to incorporate all practical aspect. The presentation should have uniform format for better effect.
Work environment and people
Ashish Sir, is great mentor. He inspired me a lot as his strictness motivated us. He always explained the research work which created an enthusiasm plus curiosity to know how that thing works. If we did any mistake he guided us and told us the correct method and how things actually are.
Sir’s aim was not restricted to getting his work done but it extends to understand the working of Courts and the working of law.
Jyotsana Ma’am assigned usually corporate matter. The topic were easy but when researched they were good source of knowledge which helped in understanding a lot. Other associates have been also very helpful.
Interning in a prestigious firm like Maheshwari & Co. is in itself a best thing. Apart from this, the work environment and the tasks assigned were the best things about the internship in the firm.
Co interns were also very helpful and they made work not a burden but a challenging task which instilled good working spirit.
There was nothing bad as such.
NO stipend. Only free tea.
There should be dedication in every intern otherwise life becomes monotonous.
Any Other Thing
There are usually 10-12 interns. So you make lot of new friends.
