Duration of internship was for a period of 4 weeks.
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
Office of the Additional Advocate General is huge, impressive, soothing and fully fledged with every possible facility necessary at a time.
On my first day only I got a chance to meet that personality in himself and was briefed about the timings and type of work.
I was assigned under his ‘senior most junior’ and was told to get the briefings of the day from him only.
The main task in court hours was to sit and watch the court proceedings. For the most of the time I found this very interesting as watching the doyens of legal profession could lead to gain knowledge of immense importance.
And believe me if one would listen to the court proceedings properly then be sure that the effort of understanding it or deciphering it, although, being very complex won’t go in vain.
After court hour I used to visit his office where I did most of the research work and even helped him in some good cases by making summary of landmark cases in various laws.
Work environment and people
The work environment was nice and sometime busy enough. But at a time you may end up having no work apart from watching the court proceedings.
You can utilize it by going to Court library and get some good reading stuff.
Being a part of advocate general office as an internee, you would feel utmost pride in telling others the same (you know the “Head held High Moments”).
You very often get to meet Govt. Advocates which most of the time ends in good notes.
The same i.e., some time “no work and all free makes jack a dull internee”.
I would say that going to High Court or Supreme Court as an internee in your initial law school year might not be that much rewarding and fruitful because contracts, constitution, family law etc., are not the food and fodder of the day at High Courts and Supreme Courts.
