Name. College. Year of Study
Tejaswinee Roychowdhury. Department of Law, University of Calcutta. 10th Semester (5th/Final Year)
Name of the organization. City
Letscomply, Delhi (but online Internship so I worked from my place at Kolkata!)
Duration of the internship
30th January, 2016 to 11th May, 2016 (basically the duration will be the period of 10 assignments, depending on when you can complete them).
How big was the office? Team strength?
Well, since the internship was online and I never went to the office physically, I am not sure about the office strength but from what I could make out in the official interactive whatsapp group of interns (made by our Internship co-ordinator and Sr. Editor, Adv. Javed Rafi), there were about 16-20 interns.
Application procedure. Internship contact details
You need to send your CV and Writing Sample to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com with the heading “Online Internship Application” (I found the application procedure on Lawctopus itself).
Duration in weeks. No. of days/week. Timings
Like I said earlier, you need to complete 10 assignments.
For each assignment, you will be given average 3 days of time. Now its upto you if you want to work during the day or at 2am!
The sheer bliss of working from home!
Accommodation: how, where, how was it?
I worked from home.
First impression. First day, formalities etc.
Two days after I sent my CV and Writing Sample, on a lazy Saturday afternoon I received a call from Adv. Javed Rafi, a short telephonic interview. Then I was immediately e-mailed the procedure for submitting my assignments.
The internship will be beginning from the day you receive your first assignment. Their promptness was something impressive.
I was given assignments from Intellectual Property Laws to International Laws to Company / Business Laws to basically every other field in law. A word limit and deadline is given. You have to conduct research and write an article or blog which will be published in their website.
In case of any difficulty or query regarding it you can always contact Javed Sir and he being the friendly Boss that he is will gladly help you. In case of major mistakes, you will be given one chance to resubmit.
Work environment, people
I only interacted with Javed Sir and he a is very friendly, helpful and chilled out person. He is also very strict and specific regarding work.
The fact that you get to know so much beyond books while conducting research on various topics and the flexibility of work timing.
I didn’t encounter any evil.
What did you do to chill? Co-interns, colleagues
I worked from home so I chilled on my own in my own sweet time.
You will get a stipend after 10 assignments so it won’t be on the basis of per month or per article and the stipend will depend upon your quality of work.
I am yet to receive mine so cannot tell the exact amount as of yet. However, after 4 articles you will be given an author profile and seeing that on the website is simply blissful!
Anything else you’d like to tell
Be prepared for a lot of research work and be glad because it will teach you a lot.
The pen is indeed mightier than the sword.
