Name of Organisation, Location:
Varma & Associates, Bhubaneswar.
Application process with contact details:
You have to mail your internship application along with your CV at firstname.lastname@example.org. In my case I got confirmation phone call within a week.
Duration of internship and timings:
February 01, 2018 – February 28, 2018. Timings : 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure:
At first, I was introduced to the founder and senior most partner of the firm Advocate Pradipta Varma, who interviewed me and asked several questions relating to my past experiences and areas of interest.
I was then made to submit a printed copy of my CV, along with a couple of passport-size photos of mine. The infrastructure was really good and there was separate room for the interns as well. There was a library with ample amount of books.
During the initial days of my internship I was told to make the case brief of the cases which was posted for hearing the next day and was made to represent the same at the end of the day before Varma sir and his associates.
I also had few court visits. Then, I was allotted with some research work and drafting. At the end of the internship every intern had to submit an internship report.
Work environment and people:
The work environment is really friendly but professional. People over there are always ready to teach and help. Working in such an environment is encouraging and motivational.
The best thing over there was the conversations with Varma sir, even a conversation of five minutes with him would be enough for you to learn variety of things.
My perception about this field of law changed in a positive way.
There were no bad things as such.
I stayed at my hostel.
Learnt how to be on time and sit in the office for long hours.
