Duration of internship and timings
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
You reach office early and exchange casual greetings with whoever is there.
If its the associates then they will do a quick background check including name, college, semester, etc.
If its the office boy then he’ll guide you to the I term seating area and ask you to wait until an associate comes.
Once the introductions are over, they will hand you work.
1. Legal research by means of internet search engines, commentary, journals, etc.
2. Case synopsis. Read all documents of the concerned case, know the case, mark out relevant parts and give the work printed.
3. Scrutinizing of evidence. Search the documents like investigation reports, rukka report, FIR, statement of witnesses to find contingencies, loopholes, etc.
4. Conference Participant: Conferences with new clients. Also for points to be used be for matters listed for the next day,discussed in detail.
Work environment and people
Fairly chilled when there is no work. But when there is, associates tend to do it seriously.
Associates and office staff will guide you how to go about things. If you have a doubt please ask them again. Don’t waste their time or yours.
They are helpful enough though.
Also there maybe some ranting every now and then.
Trial court experience! Cross- examination sessions are downright awesome. Dubey Sir is good in what he does.
Hardcore advocacy. You start to learn the tricks of the trade.
You miss home. Office dominates your daily schedule and office is 6 days a week. On Sunday’s you can’t do anything because you want to rest desperately.
If will show you exactly how your life will be once you get into litigation. Eye opener if sorts.
Any Other Thing
Nope. That’s pretty much it.
Local here. Delhi resident!
