Rajasthan State Consumer Dispute Redressal Commission, Jaipur. 30 poeple.
I applied for internship directly to Registrar, of Rajasthan State Consumer Dispute Redressal Commission (RCDRC) by sending my C.V. and attesting the Recommendation Letter from college.
There is no hard and fast rule for selection.
Also, you cannot send application form online and have to go to state commission with all the documents stated above to apply.
Duration of internship and timings
3 Weeks, Timing – 10 AM to 3 PM
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
Like any other government department or court I found the office full of people and advocates attending court .
On reaching there you are supposed to report to the internship coordinator who will explain to you the tasks to be done during internship.
Talking about infrastructure, I would just like to mention that unlike the district court, it has better distribution of work and management.
The main work over here was to observe court proceedings and read case appeals and learn about how an appeal is made and their redressal means.
You have to work on a project related to consumers as specified by the internship head of the commission. This project helps you to understand the practical aspect of the Consumer Protection Act and its application.
After working in the commission one is able to understand the difference between theoretical aspects of law and how it is practically applicable.
Work environment and people
Work environment is amiable and person working here are helpful and co-operative. You can learn much from mutual discussions with them.
People present there will help you go through files of commission and understand how legal drafts are prepared.
You come to know about the absolute realities of consumers and there is no compulsory attendance.
Also, you will never be overburdened by the work you do there and there is no pressure of work as such.
For first year students who have recently studied consumer laws it will be an experience to understand the practical aspects of law.
Though after working there you will never regret your decision, one problem which you might face would be lack of an understanding of the actual problems prevalent in society which might be important to understand for a first year law student.
