Duration of internship and timings
15th July 2014 – 14th August 2014
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
The first day you are required to meet Sir in the morning and then go to the Court and get your monthly pass made which takes some time. You are given the cause list of his matters listed on that particular day and then you can go to the respective court rooms and hear him argue with such ease.
He has 2 offices in Bengali Market, one in the basement of his house in Central Lane and the other one in Babar lane.
Main tasks in his office includes the research work and going to the Court and various Tribunals to see him argue. There is no drafting work. You are required to attend client meetings with Sir and his juniors in the office itself. You can also go for an arbitration if there is one happening as it is a good experience.
Work environment and people
The work environment is good and friendly. Associates are nice and helpful. You can have coffee whenever you feel like. Sometimes Sir himself would come and ask you what are you working on and would give you some research work. But this can happen only on a Saturday.
You get to see Parag Tripathi Sir argue in court and the way he does it makes you feel proud of interning in his office. Also he would make you sit with him in the client meeting and would ask you to explain the case to him sometimes just to check if you have read the file or not.
Since it is a Senior Advocate’s Office, you get to do very limited work and that includes mainly research work. But don’t be disappointed if you are not given any work and just take the files, read them and make notes because he has a lot of good matters to work on.
The biggest lesson one can learn here is how to complete your work in a limited time and also be good at it. Also you should be willing to learn things and take work otherwise no one would bother to give you work.
