How Did you Apply?

I reached out to her on Linkedin and she was kind enough to share with me her mail id where I sent my cv.

First Day Formalities, Infrastructure, First Impression

Since everything was online because of the pandemic I was welcomed in the WhatsApp group of interns where I introduced myself. It was a great feeling to be part of the group. The old interns who were working with Himanjali Ma’am explained to me how the internship is going to be and what were the current work they were doing.

Since I was in my 1st year of law school and also it was my first internship under a Supreme court lawyer it took a bit of time for me to get used to the work and meetings but everyone was sweet patient, and gentle enough to allow me to settle.

Main Tasks

As an intern, I researched various legal issues like share purchase agreements, how to file a criminal complaint, etc. Researched for webinars on topics like promotion of judges. I also created PPT for a project. Worked on a fraud case of a client.  I was also part of the social media team where I made posters on current legal issues and also created graphic videos on special occasions.

Good Things

The great thing I noticed about this internship is the team-work and the spirit of everyone. All the interns were motivated to work towards a common goal and during the process, we all got to know each other and became friends. Himanjali Ma’am always treated us like a family. Even though my internship is over with Ma’am but we are still in touch. Ma’am has made a Whatsapp group where all the old and new interns are part of. She always told us that she is there to help and support us even after the internship period. Which is very sweet and kind of her and it shows that she is also a great human being apart from being a great lawyer.

Lessons Learnt

I learned a lot through this internship- one of the most important lessons I learned in this internship is that I shouldn’t wait for someone to assign me tasks or spoonfeed me rather I have to take up tasks myself as it comes and contribute as much as I can.

Apart from discussion about the work during the meeting, Himanjali Ma’am shared her experienced with us and gave us life lessons which we are very grateful for.
