First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
Starting from Name of Firm on its Main Gate gives you a good feeling about Law Firm. As you enter the firm, you can identify firm as a sophisticated one with typical setup with different cabins for Partner, Associate and Conferences. The office is on the seventh floor of the building.
The swanky office has a reception area, five conference rooms, pantry, lunch room, server room, xerox and filing room and separate offices for senior partners. Though the office doesn’t have a designated Library but the books are spread over many book shelves consisting of various Journals, Reporters and other Law books. The firm has a designated intern area with decent space room.
The main task includes research work on areas of Corporate, Criminal, Arbitration, Contract, etc. Some times clerical work of case printout was also assigned.
One is rarely sitting idle in the office and has a variety of work and on those rare days when you don’t have work, you can simply approach any associate in the office and they are more than happy to give you work.
The associates are friendly and chilled out, they give you time with the work assigned and take time out to explain what exactly has to be done.
Sometimes, when the partner requires the work urgently, you might have to postpone lunch or take the work back home but it’s all a part of the learning process and a sneak peak in the future.
Interns were supposed to maintain a worksheet on a daily basis which had details of the work done which was to be submitted to the HR at the end of the internship.
Work environment and people
Work environment at Bharucha and Partners is a jolly one where you can enjoy along with your work. Only thing to be kept in mind is to meet up to the deadlines. Associates are friendly and gives extension if we need to complete our task.
Though you can approach the associates a number of times to be clear on what exactly is required of you and they explain it very nicely every time. The background of the work assigned to you is also explained so that one is extra clear on what he has to submit.
The best part of internship is the unlimited beverages with cookies and even maggi and yippee during evening hours to relieve you of the whole stress of work.
The office is situated near Metro Station which adds a plus point to intern with the Firm.
None. It was fun working.
Do your task on time so as to avoid from scolds of Associates. Meet up the deadlines.
Do not come late. Even if you are, just pray that even Associates are late that day otherwise you have your day.
At relatives place.
Office timings were 9:30-8:00. We would be relaxed on days where work was less and we left at 7:30 on those days but days of work may constrain you till 9:00 also.
