I personally contacted the senior lawyer and he was a close associate of my family.
Then I was asked to submit a cover letter from the college and I produced the same.
Duration of Internship and timings
9th July, 2014 – 12th August, 2014
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
The first day I reached there at 9 A.M. in formals and then I was given a notepad and a pen on which I can write whatever I learned throughout the day.
The first day I was introduced to all the associates by the senior advocate himself.
The main task which I was supposed to do was taking down the notes and my senior advocate used to gave me dictations of the documents and the files which we were preparing like the facts of the cases, affidavit and adjournment.
I also visited the sessions of the court with the Advocate and his associates.
Work environment and people
The work environment was very good. Everyone was very supportive and nice. As I was not knowing much about the court proceedings.
Everyone used to keep telling me the small things. Everyone was so excited to teach me as much as they could. Those people were amazing
Since it was my first internship and honestly I was a bit nervous about it.
But as soon as I need meet everyone one by one so my nervousness got vanished I got the chance to get into the reality of the court that what is actually happening in the courts which being a law student I should be knowing.
I came to know that how the people are unaware of their basic fundamental rights.
I used to interact with the clients so here I learned how to interact with the clients and this first very much needed to be a future lawyer.
The bad thing was not about the place where I was interning actually it was about the proceedings of the court like civil matters were pending from 50 to 60 years.
This was a huge disappointment for a law student because being a law student the very first thing which was asked was is justice delayed is justice denied and we answered it yes.
It is like who is getting justice after 60 years the person who filed that particular case maybe is not any more alive so this is the mean drawback which I found in the matter of civil jurisdiction. That’s the only thing I felt bad about.
The biggest lesson which I learned was the reality of the courts. It gave me an opportunity to know what’s going on around us.
The court and the office was near by my house so I stayed at my home and did my internship from there only.
The office timings for 9:30 am in morning till 5 pm in the evening.
