Name of Organisation, City
Phoenix Legal, New Delhi. Address – 2nd and 3rd Floor, 254, Okhla Industrial Estate, Phase III, New Delhi -110020
Duration and Timings
August: 28 Days (4 Weeks). 9:30 am to 6:30 pm. Mon-Fri.
You may be asked to stay back if the work allotted to you is required urgently. Even so, many of us stayed back till 8 on most days, to finish our work.
Location/ Team Size
The office was spread over two floors. Associates worked out of standard cubicles, with the partners having individual studies.
The interns are seated in the Library which is not adequate especially when there are many interns.
The office staff is especially helpful and friendly.
Lodging and Directions
I stayed in a PG in New Friends Colony. There are multiple options nearby.
I sent a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and got a reply in a month’s time.
I reached the office on time. There was no orientation or introduction. The first day wasn’t busy but all of us eventually got some task or the other.
Work was mostly research based.
Proofreading, sorting through thick case files, cross-referencing and, other work is part of the job.
Work Environment/ People
The work environment was formal. There wasn’t any joking around with the associates. The interns had a good time among themselves in the library though.
The associates are mostly patient and encourage clarifications. Interns were rarely asked to stay back past 8:30.
Ask the associates to tell you a bit about the matter in general, so that you get some context. This will help you in researching a lot so that you can come up with an alternate course of action if you don’t find anything on whatever it is they’ve asked you to research.
Keep track of the work given to you along with the associate who gave it in your notepad, as you need to get a work-sheet signed at the end of the internship.
It would be good to have an orientation on the first day for interns. It is also recommended to have a space other than the library for interns as it is too small to accommodate all interns.
It was overall a pleasant learning experience.
