Duration of internship and timings
I interned under them for a month. The reporting time was 10:00 am and it was to be strictly adhered to so as to avoid any kind of loss taking into cognizance the quantum of work which was given to the interns.
There is no official time at which I was supposed to leave. But, it took me around 5:00 to 6:00 pm to leave everyday.
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
First day, I went to their office wherein I met one of the Managing Partners. He asked me about my academic background and briefed with the type and amount of work that was to be expected and done by me.
There were no any such kind of formalities that would have made me feel uncomfortable and I was immediately given some work to be done within the stipulated time.
The Chamber was AC equipped with a floor, and a basement for interns to work upon the things as allotted.
Nearly everyday, I had to attend the court proceedings either with the partners or through myself to ask for date, withdrawal or adjournment of proceedings. So, it was mandatory for the interns to read the case files pertaining to the cases which were to be heard the next day.
I was also given research based works wherein I had to find relevant case laws for some of the subsequent cases pending or to be filed before the courts (District Courts, High Court and Supreme Court)
I was also given some basic tasks like sending a courier through post office, filling of Processing Fee (PF), Registered Cover (RC), and Certified Forms.
Work environment and people
The work environment at Bajaj and Bajaj Associates was awesome in many ways. Firstly, I was protected from the scorching heat which escalated my efficiency of doing work in the Chamber by multi folds.
Secondly, the partners used to give a reply to all my queries at an appropriate time which made the understanding of the law and the work allotted even greater.
Thirdly, they were very friendly to the interns and groomed as well as executed the inner desire to impart much knowledge and skills to the interns required to become a good lawyer.
I came to know many basics which a lawyer must know before starts practising. My understanding of civil cases (since they mainly dealt with Company and Bank Cases) as well as a tinge of criminal law and arbitration law grew.
I came to know a lot about the court and work ethics. I learnt how to manage files and interpret law by reading the case files and hearing their arguments before the court.
Nothing was bad except for the fact that there was no clerk employed by them and so it becomes sometimes boring to waste time in arranging case files in the Chamber .
A bunch of knowledge does not call for a big name but for the willingness to grasp it.
