First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression

Sir was extremely humble and polite. He started with a telephonic interview regarding the pre requisites of my legal knowledge and then confirmed my selection for a month . I was asked about my course, my preferences and career
goals. After that, I was briefed about the work done . I was added in the office whatsapp group where the junior advocates and other office staff welcomed me.

Main tasks

Matters usually dealt with were: Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, SARFAESI Act, During the course I drafted criminal complaint, Complaint Letters, Made a PPT on bails, provisions and relevant judgements.

  • Practical learning experience of matters related to law.
  • Knowing about various sectors of law. Researching a diverse set of laws widened my scope of legal knowledge.
  • More preference given to the practical application of the law than theoretical knowledge.
  • All the suggestions and corrections were very politely dictated to me.
  • Due credit was given for every work.

Bad things

There were no bad things as such experienced by me.It was a pleasant experience over all.

Anything else? Like: what you did to chill out, lessons learnt etc.

Personally, this internship helped me understand how to structure and present research, communicate, work on deadlines and still find a way to relax.

Despite being a virtual internship, the exposure I received here was brilliant. This internship teaches one Discipline, Determination, and value of hard work. There is no short-cut to success, other than sheer hardwork.
