10am – 6pm. (6 days a week)
The first day started with a brief introduction to the office environment and work culture. The team was welcoming. I was given certain case files to read upon which were pending before IT appeals and was mainly asked to find case laws supporting those cases. Also, they expect the interns to take initiatives to ask for more work and finish it on time. The team was always ready to help me and clarified my doubts and responded promptly.
Additionally, I was asked to write an article on National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT), Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) and External Commercial Borrowings (ECB).
The best part is talking with Ramana Sir who explains about the legal profession, its etiquettes and also often shares his experience with us. It was really inspiring. Also, every day he made it a point to spend some time with the interns and also assessed our progress and pointed out our weakness and make us realize our full potential.
The best thing was the variety of tax work the firm overtakes. They deal with almost everything in tax, both domestic and international. Hence the interns also get an opportunity to explore in those fields.
It is an ideal place to intern if you are interested in taxation.
