Duration of internship
1st July, 2015 to 31st July, 2015 (4 weeks)
On the very first day, there was no associates at the time I reached.
After waiting for half an hour in the conference room the receptionist gave us the kit in which there were two forms and an assignment sheet with a notepad.
We had to fill those forms and submit it to the receptionist.
After this we were introduced to all the associates and the senior partners.
After the break the Associate gave us a brief overview of the work and concept.
The very first day, I felt that the A/C was so effective that I’ll have to carry a blanket from the very next day.
I was made to do legal research work which is one of the most important part to draft and file a case.
I also prepared list of dates, briefed accordingly about the case, and also drafted various documents.
In the last week of the internship, I had to give a presentation on a certain topic which was approved by the Senior Associate.
I had to address all the associates present on the recent amendments of the acts.
The casual attitude of the Associates made all the interns feel comfortable.
Every Associate was very friendly and mentored very well.
All of us used to have lunch together.
Not only associates but the management staff was very friendly, I enjoyed interacting with each one of them.
Being a disciplined law firm, we could enjoy even in its calm environment.
I was assigned to the Associate dealing with Indirect Taxation, Since I haven’t studied taxation, he, made me read the books and explained the concept and then the work was given to me.
This was one of the best things I found over there.
As such there was no nearby place to eat outside.
Although Hauz Khas Village was not that far but the traffic on the roads made it impossible to go and come back within an hour of the lunch break.
All the interns were not taken to the courts, which was “not so good” experience in this aspect.
If you have no work to do, you have to ask for the work under whom you are assigned.
Any Other Thing
Constant supply of tea/green tea/coffee with the cookies or biscuits.
Every friday, we used to get an outdoor snack in the evening.
Moreover, everyday in the evening, there was a facility of self-service of sandwiches which we could make according to our taste.
