The only bad thing about big firms is that there are a number of co-interns and the work that you do doesn’t get noticed easily, no matter how good you are. Besides this, I was hospitalized for a day by consuming outside food almost every day. This was really an awful experience when you get
The first thing I realized on the first day was that irrespective of whatever impression others may have about a PSU, people actually turn up on time. I had a brief introduction with the GM Legal, after which the Assistant Legal Manager took over. By Sourya Banerjee, 3 year, (VI Sem), Faculty of Law
The delicious dinner on almost every night was a reward at the end of the day. Protik da's knowledge and way of teaching is worth mentioning. Even if you are completely unaware of certain things he teaches you from the scratch.
The Deputy Secretary cum Registrar Mr. Anjan Kr. Sengupta (WBJS) is in-charge of the interns. He is a kindly man and really sweet to talk to. He will invite you to the pre-litigation trials and discuss them with you after. He appreciates the work if you do it diligently.
Apart from that, the staff present was super friendly and entertaining. Rabin Da would give you coffee/tea/snacks anytime you wanted.

Here one never shows the audacity to walk. One just swam along in this human sea and that is precisely what I forgot to do.

I have never interned in a place with a better atmosphere. People wanted the work done but that did not mean you are supposed to just stare at your screen. The associates had a lot of fun and made the interns very comfortable. By Kaustubh Rastogi, GNLU, 3rd Year

On those two days, we used to have the hearings of the cases which came for recommendation in the Commission. The persons concerned, that is the petitioner and the respondent would mostly be a government official. The hearings would be interesting in the sense that you can actually see J. Ganguly in his witty best,
My first impression about the organisation was that I will be made to have some real experience in dealing with the legal issues. The first day was good as we were introduced to the basics of IPR by the person incharge of the Patents and then we were introduced to the director of the organisation.

This being my first internship in a top tier firm, I learnt a lot about the functioning of a top tier firm and the mechanism in which work is conducted in this kind of an environment. Work was always given to me in a very official manner and thus, a lesson in mutual respect between
Before coming down we were mailed pre-internship assessment forms (Later you even get post-internship assessment forms). We were briefed about CRY and the work which we were supposed to do.
