First day he just informed me about all work which I would have to do in next coming days.

Main tasks

The main task given to me was to sit in the proceedings and make a case diary of 10 criminal case and 10 civil case and he also gave me some research work related to the case he presents.

Work environment and people

Under him at that time period, I was the only Intern so I get all his focus and I learned many things, the best part was that I have never seen any lawyer pleading in English in district court, he was the one who always pleaded in English with citing proper cases.

So it was a very nice experience working under him.

He was very learned and experience holder.

Best things

He took cases from consumer form also, so it was my good luck that I was interning under him, I also get opportunity to go to the consumer form, Varanasi and state consumer forum there also I got same work, but I was happy to go on a trip out of station for my case.

Bad things

The only bad thing was that it was little boring at times.

Yes it is interesting too, but doing research work on a daily basis would be a boring task for anyone.


No stipend.

Biggest Lessons

I learned to listen cases very carefully, making proper notes with full concentration.

This still helps in in doing any research work.
