I found the internship through a personal contact.

However you can contact them directly calling on their number .

They will take you if they have vacant place for interns

Duration in weeks. No. of days/week. Timings

I worked there for 1 month.

But it is possible to increase or decrease time period according to your comfort

Accommodation: how, where, how was it?

I am from Jodhpur so accommodation was not a problem for me.

But you find good PGs nearby very easily.

First impression. First day, formalities etc.

I first met them in court.

They took us to all courts of district court and told the function and working off each court separately.

They told me the basic concepts of the court .

Main tasks       

It is best place to interns from 1st year and 2nd year. From 10:30am to 4pm I remained with them in courts. That was a very good experience.

I learnt how to argue a case, your way to argue with judge, your way to ask question from witness, witness cross examination and many more basics of a lawyer in court. I met with many other lawyers through them. In court his 5 associates also work so it is very easy for you to get work.

In office I worked with their assistants and that was one of the best part of my internship. They all are very young and supportive. You can ask them anything anytime. In office I usually worked on files of next day case and prepares their brief.

Work environment, people

All are very good and supporting.

If you want leave from office or court they will give you permission very easily.

Best things? 

Best thing was court and his assistants. In lunch time in court you can talk with them in canteen of high court that is too good

Bad things? 

Almost your all day and night will spend in work. From 10am to 4pm in court and from 7pm to 10:30 pm in office.

What did you do to chill? Co-interns, colleagues

We were 3 interns and we were good friends so that is a good thing of internship. Rajasthan high court is situate in city area of Jodhpur so there were many places to chill out like public park just outside of court, zoo, hotels and multiplex.

You can have famous mirchi bada of Jodhpur nearby and best place is canteen of court. Office is also in prime area near park and market

Stipend/ month

No stipend. Some things in life are invaluable.

I think learnt as much there as i knew in my one year of college.
