About the Internship and Main Tasks
The internship was online. The interns were given tasks via e-mail, which they were required to submit before the deadline. Each intern was assigned to a legal associate to whom he had to report. However, in terms of PILs, the whole unit had to work together. After the completion of the internship, an online certificate was issued.
I was working under Advocate Vishal Kumar Singh who is one of the partners of the firm. My work basically comprised of drafting and researching. I got a chance to work on cases related to human rights, POCSO Act and Criminal Law. I also drafted PILs and petitions which were to be filed in the High Court of Patna.
Vishal Sir was really supportive and helped me throughout the internship. He also helped me in improving my researching and drafting skills.
Well, there was nothing bad about this internship. However, I wish it was an offline one. I really wanted to interact with the lawyers and visit all those court proceedings.
This is a work from home opportunity. Interns will be required to submit their work on e-mail.
