Duration of internship
June 1- June 26, 2015, 4 weeks
They have a huge four storey building within walking distance from the Huda City Metro station.
All the interns were asked to report by 9:30 AM.
We were provided with the internship forms.
Mrs. Ghosh, HR head met us around 10 AM.
She briefed us about the rules and regulations to be followed. She allotted us the Associate/ Sr. Associate as our mentors.
The office is located in Sector 44, Gurgaon.
The interns were mainly asked to read the relevant statutory laws on the first day.
In my 4 weeks of internship, I have mainly worked with the Patents department.
I have drafted fresh patent filing applications as well replies to FERs among others.
The associates give plenty of research work to interns so normally everyone used to be busy.
However there were few days when interns kept waiting for some work to be assigned to them.
The attorneys are really cooperative over there.
I remember, on my first day, my mentor explained me the entire process of Patent filing and its complexities.
He taught me the basics of Intellectual Property Law and explained all the relevant sections of Indian Patent Act for Patent prosecution.
I really liked the working atmosphere over there.
Although a mentor was allotted to me, however I was free to ask for work from any of the Associates, Senior Associates or Partner from the Patents department.
They explained to me the entire concept before allotting me any work and most importantly they took out time to clear out all the doubts I had.
The interns sit in the basement so every time you want to meet your associate mentor you have to go to the respective floors.
This creates quite a hindrance in the interaction process.
Moreover there is no stipend.
None. They do provide lunch to the interns free of cost.
One thing that struck me was no matter how high you reach in life, you should never forget your roots and loose humility.
The attorneys treated the interns with respect and they made sure that the interns feel like an asset to the firm.
