Major tasks involved research and drafting work. I was asked to research on various matters and judgments dealing with the Companies Act, Code of Civil Procedure, Right to Information, etc.

I was also asked to draft petitions under section 200 Cr.PC and letter of complaints as F.I.R.

Interns were also sent to the Calcutta High Court and DRT with the advocates to observe the court proceedings and later the interns had to summarise the cases to Mr. Sandip Agarwal.

The work environment and the Associates were really very helpful and any questions regarding the intricacies of law, was answered by the associates without hesitating.

There is nothing bad as such but there were few days, when there was no work at all.

What did you do to chill? Co-interns, colleagues

My co-interns inspite of being senior to me, were fun to be with. Our lunch recess used to be filled with humour. Moreover near the office, one can indulge into various kinds of cheap and tasty street food.
