Duration of internship and timings
Minimum duration is two weeks. Timings are from 9 A.M. to 5 P.M.
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
Menon & Pai is basically a famous litigation firm in Kochi. They mainly deal with taxation & corporate laws.
It is located on the second and third floors of a building. The first impression I got was that it was well organised. The interns are asked to occupy a conference hall with Wifi & computer .
We were directly under the supervision of one of the associates, Adv. Jayashankar.
Every evening before leaving the office we had to brief him on what we did that day. It was more or less like we had to prepare a report on daily basis.
This is one of those firms that really takes interns seriously. Each associate kept assigning with research work.
In addition to this we were asked to draft various documents. We were also given the space to work out creative grounds for certain cases. There were many brainstorming sessions.
Work environment and people
The associates , clerks and other staff were extremely kind and helpful. We were to occupy one air conditioned and comfortable conference room. It seemed extremely professional because we had to work to meet deadlines.
The conference room we were asked to occupy with an open wifi. There was a coffee machine on the second floor of the office and we used to take many coffee breaks. The timings were also nice.
The best part was I think they seemed to take interns seriously. We never had the time to sit idle. The internship certificate lists out everything you are good at, I think it was extremely encouraging.
I interned at this firm during my first year. I feel they could have made better use of me If I had been in my third or fourth year.
Be a go-getter wherever you are.
Any Other Thing
This place is also located right in the heart of the city. There will be no dearth of good hostels and P.G’s around this place.
