Shree Vardhan Complex, Green Park Colony, South Tukoganj, Indore, Madhya Pradesh
Duration of the internship:
17th June to 15th July 2013
First Day, and the subsequent ones:
Since it is a new litigating firm, there were no other interns, just one. But, over years interns have increased.
First day, a general tour of the courts and general concepts regarding working of courts. (by associate, obviously).
Since it’s a litigation firm, we were mostly assigned work related to Criminal Laws. I got to work mostly on the procedural laws and I loved it as it was the first time I dwelled on it. I was also assigned work related to Civil laws and constitution.
It is advisable to seek the help of the associates who assign you work while you`re at your task. Most of them would make sit you down and explain things and point out your mistakes without being condescending about it.
As I already said, the environment isn’t exactly warm and welcoming but once you got to talking with the associates, they would love to teach you and help you out.
Never forget, you intern at such firms in first two years. And, do not feel ashamed of doing clerical or filing work. You got to learn this also, rather it gives you edge over other later, over years.
