The other office is in Kalkaji. Interns do not have to necessarily go there. Chamber is stacked with books and office equipment.

She deals in both criminal and civil matters and has lots of interesting cases.

My main task included preparing and studying cases for the next day, attending the court proceedings in both HC and SC, drafting letters and emails, replying and calling officers and clients to attend their cases, researching on cases,finding judgement and jotting down points of law and arguments.

I even attended the mediation proceedings.

Work environment, people

Happy and professional.

It was great to be in the chamber.

The best things AND the bad things

Best things-I attended seminars and helped in preparing talks on issues.It was a pleasure to hear arguments in court on cases which I had helped prepare.

There was direct interaction with seniors.This one to one relation i enjoyed the most.

  1. Please take down this particular internship experience. As certain other comments rightly point out, it is highly misleading.
    Some of us applied here only because of these reviews. It is not at all a conducive atmosphere for interns. There is absolutely nothing to learn. This is what happened there:
    – Mark her appearances in the proceedings.
    – Run to bank for her (because demonetisation).
    – Get screamed at for stupid stuff.
    – No research work or drafting whatsoever.
    – Clean her chamber (YES. You read it right) in the guise of arranging the files.
    – Highly unprofessional work environment.

  2. I completely agree with the comment posted on 19th July 2014. In addition to all the points mentioned, the work environment is not at all friendly.

  3. Please dont follow this. I suffered through the internship.
    the things she teach are:
    1. how to lock her door.
    2. make duplicate bills
    3. save money and use [] people’s resources.
    4. Never plead and still make decent money
    5. shout, get [] in court for small mistakes.


  4. I am interning with Adv. Bhatia in May. I have never stayed in Delhi.
    Would love to have a chat with the author of this review about tips/cheats of interning there.
    I can be reached on the id mentioned above.


  5. Its a good time of the year for students of Delhi University to apply for internship. Also for other Delhi-based students of various law schools.
