Duration in weeks. Days of work per week. Timings.
As per the University guidelines, it was a 4 week internship. 6 days a week. I got to learn a lot on Saturdays. Timings 9 a.m- 1 p.m
First impression, first day, formalities
First impression was very serious and disciplined but not too scary, basically a no-nonsense one.
My first day at the internship was also the day I stepped into a court for the first time. I had to report in the office at 9 and from there we proceeded daily to the respective courts.
We had gone to Tis Hazari District Court on the first day, where I got to see a real court room first time in my life! Nevertheless, I wasn’t disappointed. No formalities as such.
- Attend court hearings.
- Make note of court proceedings.
- Legal research topics were given frequently.
- Search judgments and other related materials to a case.
- Read case briefs and hence make note of it.
Work environment, people
Work environment was absolutely nice. Never felt out of place. Created a whole new interest in litigation. People were helpful and caring.
The best things AND the bad things
1. When we won a case in Supreme Court in which I had contributed a lot.
2. The constant morale-boosts.
3. The delicious food I got to eat almost everyday.
4. The reality.
1. Awkward silences while travelling.
Accommodation etc. What did you to do chill in and around the office and the place of stay?
To chill in I used to ask every single question/doubt that popped in my brain whenever I got time (related to law of course). Got answers to all of them. 😀 Since I live in Delhi, I had no problems while commuting to and fro the office.
