First impression, First day formalities, infrastructure
I was introduced to the associate in-charge of the interns, Mr. Sunil Parsad, Advocate, who welcomed me. I was then made to fill a form and submit it, along with a couple of passport-size photos of mine, photocopy of id card and Aadhar card.
Thereafter, I was made to sit with other interns, with whom I spent most of the time during the course of my internship. I then went and introduced myself to the other associates as well, who gave me my first research work then and there itself.
Main tasks included mostly the research work pertaining to Competition Law, Company Law, Intellectual Property Rights, etc. One has to approach the associates to get work.
Every intern is supposed to make daily details of work done by him/her.
Apart from the research work, interns also attended the hearings in court as well as in the other courts in Delhi, where we got the opportunity to see Suneet Sir argue.
Work environment and people
The work environment is really positive and makes the interns feel good about coming to work. The staff is nice and kind and the associates are very humble and friendly.
The associates are always ready and willing to help interns in their work. They also sometimes have fun with interns and tend to make the atmosphere light, yet healthy.
Apart from the positives that have been discussed so far, interns get to have chance to express their views about any related case in the chamber, during which sir tends to discuss case details as well as political and current issues.
Suneet Sir sometimes calls interns to his table after the lunch as well, where the interns get the chance to interact with him and share their views.
There are no bad things as such. I just felt the major part of the duration in which I interned had court vacations, which meant many of the associates were on leave.
Showing that you are passionate about the work, will make a lasting impression that could benefit you in the future, when it comes to asking for a reference.
Internships can be a lot of fun, so relax, get to know the new people around you and enjoy yourself!
