Accommodation: how, where, how was it?

Luckily, I had a friend who resided just 2 kms away from the office. But there were many interns who stayed at PG around Residency Road.

First impression. First day, formalities etc.

Interns do not sit separately. I was given a seat amongst the associates and introduced to everyone. I believe this really strengthened the bond between the associates and the interns.

Thereafter, the IT head gave me my login id and password details, and within the next 30 mins I had my first task J

Main tasks

During my Trilegal internship, I mainly researched on matters dealing with Telecom laws and on various legal propositions including:

1. Tests for interpreting a contract;

2. Consequences of a company not filing annual return;

3. Various issues related to foreign direct investment, allotment of land, lease deeds and stamp duty;

4. Registration fee for different states; etc.

Work environment, people

A little serious, but the associates were happy to help when asked.

Best things?

1. The Lunch: The Trilegal, Bangalore office serves the most amazing and hygienic food.

2. The office coffee: I need my morning coffee, and I was duly served the moment I reached my desk

3. The STIPEND! (However if you got your internship through an internal reference then you will not receive a stipend )

Bad things? 

A rather serious work environment makes it lull at times, however, it teaches you a lot.

What did you do to chill? Co-interns, colleagues

Brigade Road and M.G Road are barely 3 kms away.

Infact, nothing in Bangalore is too far. My favorite place would be 13th floor (it’s a restaurant with a view like no other.)

Stipend/month

Yes! Rs.15,000/- per month

Anything else you’d like to tell; Biggest lessons

The Trilegal Bangalore internship was a very enriching experience for me. I learnt a lot about law just by researching.

The always helpful associates were form a great part of this learning experience.

The internship opened my eyes to practical, ground-work. Overall a good learning experience.
