First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
The office is located in the N Block of Greater Kailash, and is on the second floor of the building, the office is plush and spacious with a good stock of books and reporters. The office had a fast wifi and subscription of various online reporters.
The first day formalities included meeting with the partners and associates, getting to know each other sessions. Work was allotted from the very first day.
Main tasks included research on various areas of laws, as the law firm was a full services law firm, so one was exposed to various laws at the same time. Most of which were not studied or taught in usual course.
