Duration of Internship

The application process is not very complex. You can send your CV to [email protected] and fix your appointment.
First impression, first day, formalities
The very first day, I was made to introduce whole team. I was told about the work they are engaged in. Office was spacious and quite impressive. The work culture in the firm was very professional and systematic, but people were quite friendly, supportive, encouraging and helpful.
I found the people simple, humble and down to earth as well, especially the heads of teams and people with the highest positions.
Omar Law associates LLP is a multi functioning law firm and hence deals with whole range of legal issues. I was given research work related to Companies Act, Criminal Law, Civil Law, Hindu marriage Act, Divorce related issues, Inspection of companies through MCA website, Medical Negligence cases, Negotiable Instrument Act etc.
I had to assist the associates in preparing drafts, arranging the documents, highlighting the important points and preparing notes. I was also assigned the task of Drafting Plaints, Transfer Petition, written statements, Legal Notices, Rejoinder, Replications, Evidence by way of Affidavit, First and Second motions in mutual divorce cases etc.
All the associates were young and the founder, Mr. Omar Siddiqui sir who was in his late 20s, was a charismatic personality and served a great inspiration. He had established this law firm at such a young age. I am grateful to Mr. Prateek Gupta, who guided me throughout my whole internship period.
I learnt a lot about the back-end work in the litigation team, something which you aren’t taught in most of the places. I learnt the procedural aspects and various approaches to each case. I also got many opportunities to observe the arguments by seniors and learn from them.
Apart from the learning, another best thing was availability of Coffee, Tea and snacks anytime you want!
Not much strictness.
There are no bad things as such. If you are eager to learn something, Omar law Associates is the best place for you.
Stipend depends upon the intern’s capability and outcome. Can’t disclose!
