How to apply for an Internship?
One can send resume to their official email id- [email protected] or can send resume via register post to the address given above. They take a maximum of two interns at a time.
First Day, Formalities, Infrastructure, First Impression
On the first day, I was called to the office in the afternoon. It is a small law firm with three partners. They mainly work in all kinds of civil, matrimonial, banking and income tax matters. The interns will be given work as per there interest and knowledge about the laws.
The interns were given work for research on different cases as per the requirement. You may get some drafting work also. In the evening the interns will be given work for the next day. The morning starts with a different court visit according to the work.
During my internship, I visited 12 different courts including High Court, NCLT, DRT, CAT, Tis Hazari etc. Sometimes you may get the work to file the case in some District Court or in High Court.
During my period of internship, I was given many times the opportunity to file the cases my self and in case of any confusion, you can call and ask any queries from them.
Further interns can assist the Partners in the Court hearing. In the second half, all the partners come to the offices and there you may get work for research or drafting.
All the Partners in the office are very friendly. During lunch, all the partners sit together in the conference room and eat. Interns are also invited to eat together and can have a healthy talk with them during that time.
Interns during the course of work visit almost all courts in Delhi because the firm has work in almost all the courts.
They have a diverse number of cases and so you get practical and theoretical knowledge about many laws. Saturdays are off for the interns however if one wants can go to the office.
It will be depending on your work. However, it is not compulsory that you will get a stipend.
Accommodation, commuting to the office
One can easily get accommodation in nearby areas like Govindpuri etc. The nearest metro station to Defence colony is Lajpat Nagar metro station and from there you can take auto or rickshaw to the office.

The nearest place from the office is Central Market, Lajpat Nagar. There are many shops to eat and the special Dolma Aunty Momos. And in the High Court, there are 4-5 canteens for lunch and snacks.
