It is not a tough task to apply at this firm if you really want to be a part of this. You can simply send your resume at email@example.com.
Thereafter, sir will himself call you for an interview and give his confirmation for the same. It would be recommend that you should try to apply 2 months prior to the time when you wish to join him for the internship as he only takes 4 interns under him.
Mr. Jaggi is very humble and down to earth person. No person working with him can ever complain about the hospitality he provides to the staff and the interns.
He is not too strict with the interns but is very active and sincere about his work and expects the same from everyone working with him.
Mr. Jaggi has a good collection of books in his chamber and one can take them along for the research or reading purpose.
There you may find an opportunity of client counseling too. One is also required to take the dictation from him and also, sit and listen when any dictation was given to stenographer.
We were required to go through the case briefs and find out the relevant case laws and make a reply for the same. We were also required to make plaint whenever any new case came to his office. We were also made to attend the proceedings of the cases.
WORK ENVIRONMENT AND TIMINGS
Every member of his team is cooperative to each other and is very helping towards the interns as well. Soon, everyone becomes like family.
The working hours are 9a.m. to 4 p.m. Mr. Jaggi is very punctual so he expects every intern to be there till atleast 9:30 a.m.
THE ATTRACTIVE PART
Mr. Jaggi treats every intern equally and make him actually learn to how to draft a plaint, reply, affidavit etc.
You may also get an opportunity to go to the courts outside Delhi and work on the cases. He personally makes a person learn about the actual law, the very basic things a person tends to ignore.
Stipend is not given to the interns who wish to work with him as he believes that while learning, one does not concentrate on the money he gets but on the teachings he may acquire.
“Hard work will never go unrequited. This is the only way to succeed and achieve your goals.”
In this field many people are ordinary but, the few who are extra-ordinary occupies the top floor of this profession. Therefore, if you wish to succeed you must find that extra-ordinary thing within yourself.
I was really lucky to get an opportunity to work with him once and would suggest the same to others as well.
At the accomplishment of this internship, I would like to opine that the real deep reasoned understanding of law is absolutely different from what you may find beyond books and actually working upon the cases.
ANY OTHER THING
Mandi House, Khan Market, Central Secretariat and Pragati Maidan are the nearby metro stations to the Court. And also, Patiala House Court, Supreme Court and India Gate are the nearby localities to the Delhi High Court.
You should always carry your ID proof with you to enter the High Court.
