There was no formality as such and the infrastructure is quite good enough to accommodate interns properly. But as it was a government office, so one can impliedly get a brief picture of how the government offices are and of its infrastructure too.

Work environment

It’s upto the mark.

Good things

Learnt about the detailed aspects of Consumer Laws, its proceedings and stages of trial in a consumer case.

Bad things

Nothing as such.

As I’m a localite here and the distance from my home to the chamber is only 5 mins, so there is no problem of commuting.
