First Day Formalities, Infrastructure and First Impression
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the internship was done online. The reporting time for the first day was 8:00 AM, it was to be attended in formals over a Video call (as it more effective) with all the associates and members of the office. They were friendly and provided guidance to the interns from time to time.
I was asked to present the research and my understanding on few matters related to the Company Law allocated by Vikram Sir. I never felt out of place right from day one due to the warm welcome extended to me.
This internship has given me a wholesome experience. It provided me an opportunity to learn the nuances and grasp knowledge including various relevant acts. Following tasks were performed by me:
Extensive research upon the matters dealt with by the firm on a daily basis.
Drafting opinions, agreements and research notes.
Gaining experience as to the practical applicability of laws learnt in my curriculum.
Frequent video conferences with Vikram Sir and the associates.
Courtroom enactment of landmark judgements.
Presentation of debatable topics on video conferences.
An incredible place to any intern if one is serious and determined in gaining experience for litigation or arbitration. It was an amazing journey and experience. All the doubts regarding the ongoing matters would be clarified either by the associates or Vikram Sir himself, which gave us a lot of perspectives to look at things in a different way.
Vikram Sir keeps motivating us to give our best shot at every task that is assigned and later gives genuine feedback regarding our performance. I was never treated as an intern but always felt like a part of the office. This experience will make you ready to face work-life situations.
Towards the end of the internship, you gain confidence as to your abilities and are ready to achieve great heights in future. Apart from the legal work done, you will get a lot of insights with regards to other general matters.
As it was an online internship, there were no fixed timings. There were a few late-night tasks which would seem tedious at the moment but the amount and quality of work assigned provide satisfaction in the end. Sundays were also working days provided that there was work going on at the Office. This instils discipline and passion for work.
The stipend depends on the performance of the intern. If Vikram Sir feels that the intern performed sincerely and added value to the work, he pays them generously.
An experience like this is very rare to achieve in other offices. Vikram Sir takes care of the interns personally and shows a lot of enthusiasm in listening to various perspectives.
He subjects the intern to real work situations to test the perseverance and passion for work. If one is determined in working and is interested in experimenting with various topics, this is a suitable place. Your talent is what takes you to heights.
