Duration of internship and timings

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
The office isn’t a huge one and operates in just one floor. Thankfully; air conditioned.
First day wasn’t much of an issue. We were just explained about the working of the commission.
The main task the intern had to undertake was to view the application submitted by women and segregate them according to their problems and prayers.
Later, the problems which have a scope of being solved through a negotiation were called for counselling.
The counselling thus decided where the issue could be solved through a mutual agreement or it needed legal remedy.
Work environment and people
The work environment is good and the people working there are friendly.
But the counselling sessions at time get very loud at times. Then again; it’s the part of work.
Best thing was getting to interact with the parties seeking help, which made the internship very much a practical experience and not just bookish knowledge.
No bad thing experienced.
Not exactly a lesson, but definitely it helped in understanding the realities of the society and what it demands from the legal/judicial system.
