Your main tasks will involve a lot of research work on absolutely interesting stuff like Stadium Season Ticket Holders' rights and ad regulations for a big beverages company. During the IPL season you'll be tracking down a lot of ambush marketing for IPL, and filing 'pull down' notices. By Anirban Saikia, 4th year, NUJS
Most important thing is that its a big learning experience and everyone is ready to help you always. Best thing is the friendly nature of the people. You have a wending machine giving tea or coffee or green tea anytime :) and office is in the city itself.
I learnt the practical application of the law in the corporate world. Infact, I learnt more in 25 days than what a year at law school had taught me. There is a brilliant work culture, the work is great and comprehensive and interns are treated like full time attorneys. By Suprotik Das, Jindal
Basically, you would never feel that you are 'just' an intern, but almost an integral part of the workforce. That adds responsibility to your work as well as excitement. Coming to the research work, the subjects may range from corporate to family, case laws, and by that you are made to cover a plethora
All the things I had heard about slaving the first half decade after law school was just the stuff of legends (due to my prior internships) until Link Legal happened to me. It is a tough-tough environment to be in where you feel like a slave.
First impression as already said the office was really difficult to locate. No such formalities were there. The partner came to know that a new intern has joined and assigned work straightaway. There is no need to know the name, college, year ( useless formalities eh)
For instance, if a couple's heading for divorce but one of them WANTS to make it work, would you or would you not recommend that they go in for Mediation? I was stunned by how important simple things affect your judgement of a party, especially matrimonial ones.
The crowd is casual in both manners and dressing, they speak mostly in English and some Hindi as well. All of them are extremely passionate and committed to what they do, and the same is expected from the intern.
The best thing would be the work and the co-interns. I was lucky to have co-interns who were amazing and we stuck together despite being picked on. The bad thing was having to associate with immature people.
Almost every time there is a legal doubt, sir will explain that to you as a teacher and will have utmost patient to listen and answer your doubts.

I was conferred with the task to make Power point presentations, a compendium on the changes that has taken place in tax regime, summary of case laws on particular subjects and most importantly they will really give time to read each and every provision of law in which you are asked to work and you
None of the associates talk to the interns, or even look at the interns for that matter. They're extremely indifferent. Some people just stop turning up after a few days, but they don't even seem to notice.
I am a student of IPR Hons. and so I was very much interested in doing an internship in an IPR Law firm.
Krishna and Saurastri Associates, was a great opportunity for me to explore the world of IPR and I can say that I really learnt a lot from the firm, especially by witnessing the
I was surprised that Mr. Thiru actually took time to personally evaluate the interns. You may also be lucky to get a treat on one of the weekends. By Mariam Munazz, University Law College (2nd year at the time of internship)
They offer legal advice on several matters, however, they specialise in offering advice and arguing cases related to medical negligence and allied fields. The firm caters to both hospitals and patients. Most cases are argued in the Consumer Fora and have yielded satisfying results to the parties, so much so that in my duration there,
Singhania & Co. Bangalore is located in M.G.Road which is an expensive location. So I'd would suggest to live at other place like BTM Layout, Koromangala. I stayed at BTM Layout. It would take half an hour to reach M.G. Road. There are lot of PGs in these above-mentioned locations. Abhinav Kumar, KIIT Law
Biggest plus point of is stipend. It will be given as a Cheque by end of internship which is sum of efforts plus work (200 per working day + Rs. 4000 if you cover a mandate fixed by organisation). So if you intern for 25 working days you have a good chance of getting
I saw the work culture and how work happens at a mid-sized corporate law firm. I learned how to survive a 9 to 5.30 day. I learned to complete my work within a time-frame. I got some people skills. By Atul V Mohan, 2nd Year, NUALS
The primary tasks given to me were the following:
1) Drafting Notices
2) Escalations ( Calling the hosts of various websites and asking them to take down the illegitimate sites, in this process you would interact with the various legal advisors across continents and the joy you get when the website is taken down is priceless)
The people at Bangalore Mediation Center (BMC) are extremely sweet and kind. They’re very welcoming to new interns. Additionally, they are extremely professional about their timings and work culture. The Mediators were very enthusiastic about interns and told us as much about mediation as they could. They also encouraged us to ask a lot of
