First impression, First day formalities etc.
I was asked to come directly to the court where I met other interns. That day I saw Hemant sir arguing and I was really impressed by his knowledge and oratory skills. Later, we came to the office which was quite clean and comfortable.
There were multiple tasks like researching on various legal issues, finding the most suitable case laws, filing of the cases, drafting various applications, vetting and making notes of the cases. There was never a time one could be free because the work was regularly allotted.
If you are someone who is keen to learn then trust me you will find everything great here. Every conversation here makes you learn. You are free to ask as many legal questions from sir and moreover he gives you some additional information regarding the questions asked which I consider is a brownie.
Sir and the associates really care about what you do and help you where you get stuck. At the end of the day, sir shares his experience with us and also discusses the general as well as case related legal issues. You must work really hard otherwise you will start losing sir’s trust and the opportunities.
Nothing bad but there’s plethora of work so some might find this place a bit challenging.
Personally speaking, my perception regarding how laws are to be read changed a lot. I learned how to give a more comprehensive approach towards the laws and was also able to relate with the practical experience I had while interning there.
