How did you apply?

Messaged Sarthak Maggon Sir through LinkedIn and then sent my CV at complianceofficer@smlawoffices.in and cc sarthak.maggon@smlawoffices.in.

First day formalities

Due to restrictions on mobility due to the Coronavirus, it was a virtual internship. We were introduced to other co-interns and to Sir over a video call and were given a brief of our tasks to be done during the internship and what is expected from us.

Main tasks

My tasks done during the internship varied from time to time. These included:

  • Drafting a Written Submission before the High Court for X V. Union of India (W.P CRL. NO. 1082/2020)
  • Drafting the impleadment application under Section 156(3) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973.
  • Research on various case laws and judgments.

Pros

It was a major learning experience as I learned a lot of new skills in the duration of the Internship. Sir communicated with us directly, that too through frequent video calls and voice notes, which helped overcome the obstacle of lack of physical interaction.

Cons

As any virtual internship would have, the hindrance of movement proved to be somewhat a barrier for better communication. The workload sometimes may require to work for late hours, another problem due to working from home.

Stipend

No stipend.

Accommodation, commuting to office

N/A as it was a virtual internship.
