DURATION OF INTERNSHIP AND TIMINGS
The duration of my internship in the firm was 1 month, 3rd October to 31st October, 2016.
10:00 A.M. to 8 P.M. (for boys)
09:00 A.M. to 7 P.M. (for girls)
FIRST IMPRESSION, FIRST DAY FORMALITIES
On my first day, I reached the office at sharp 10:00 A.M. as the office is located near my residence so it was easy for me to locate the office. The office is located in 20 IP Extension, Patparganj, B-55 Retreat Apartments, New Delhi-110092. When I entered the office I was asked to wait in the conference room by the staff. On the walls of the conference room there were many news articles pasted highlighting the work done by Mr. Anupam Tripathi. There was a new chamber in which sir sits and carries out the work.
There is separate area for Associates and interns. The associates and interns are provided with desktop computers. But I carried my own laptop as I was more comfortable on it which was allowed however subject to some restrictions as per the IT policy of the Firm.
The main tasks that given to me were research, drafting and preparing case notes and few court visits. The good part of the internship with The Practice was that you are loaded with a lot of work. You would get every kind of exposure there, from working on family matters, consumer cases, corporate cases, and animal rights cases etc. It was a great learning experience overall. As till now I had done internship in corporate firms only, it was a great experience for me to know the procedure of courts also as in few court visits I had to visit the consumer court and Karkardooma court for matters.
WORK ENVIRONMENT AND PEOPLE
The working environment was really good and all the associates were also very helpful. The long hours hardly turned out to be frustrating. The associates were friendly and we had lunch together. At lunch time we used to talk a lot and get to know each other.
The main objective of the internship is to learn and get to know the field, before you actually enter into the same and that was the best part of The Practice. Learning many new things and knowing the value of professionalism, hard work, and punctuality. There is no limit to work at the office. If you wish to dedicate more time to work and voluntarily take up responsibilities then it was much appreciated.
At Practice, everyone is given a chance to prove themselves and come forward to lead. It was the first ever internship experience for me, and I believe, it will be the best for a very long time.
There was no bad thing that I faced during my duration of internship.
A lesson from the Sir Anupam Tripathi was the one of the best lessons that I ever had learnt. He always used to say while briefing and drafting that one should always give extra attention in the facts, because God lies in the detail and so does the Devil.
