Duration of internship and timings

May 10, 2015 – May 28, 2015

First impression

The first impression was good, the HR department was very well managed, the first day was smooth. We were made to go to Calcutta High Court and we were asked to see the court proceedings.

The infrastructure is amazing. The assigned Advocate Shovan Chattopadhay for my internship period was very good. He made us understand all the basics of Court Proceedings.

Main tasks

My work profile mostly consisted of hunting down case laws for important propositions and drafting various types of forms required.

Work environment

VLS and Co. Law Firm offers a very good and calm working environment. Since I used to commute a long distance, the associates insisted that I leave at most by 7.

I was even faced with times when I was literally kicked out of the office for staying back late.

The directors and the associates in the firm were very caring and kind to the interns. During the course of my internship they made sure that I never faced any difficulty.

Best things

There was a very relaxed atmosphere, partially because the courts were on vacation.

The associates rewarded the interns for their good work for taking them out on lunches and evening outings.

If someone was not able to understand something, all the associates were called in to help if needed.

The workload was tight, but never too much.

Bad things

To be honest, I could not find one single flaw in the firm.



Biggest Lessons

You can have as much fun as you want, but keep your work updated.
