First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

I was introduced by the HR Ms. Aditi to my mentor Ms. Soni Ojha and then she introduced me to the other associates. I had to fill up a form which was given to me through e-mail after confirmation of my internship, I had to carry it daily to the office. Then I was asked about the area of my interest and then I was alotted with my work.

The infrastructure is quite good, there’s a small kitchen with a coffee machine (you can have it as much as you want) and a microwave.

I was made to visit the Kolkata High Court, District Court, Bankshal court, consumer forums on a daily basis, the first half of the day I had to spend in the court. At the court, I used to listen to the proceedings and make notes of the cases of my mentor.

After that, I had to make the synopsis of the cases, draft petitions, show cause, FIR, Affidavits. The cases I was given to were related to corporate and civil and law such as of Negotiable Instrument act, divorce cases etc. Some of the cases that I dealt with were also from criminal Law such as relating to Sexual harassment at work Place.
