Name, College, Year of Study
Ronak Arora, Rizvi Law College, 2nd Year
Type of Organisation
Advomate is a legal start-up.
Application and Duration
I interned at Advomate for a period of 2 months, from 1st February, 2017 to 31st March, 2017. At the end, I was given a certificate.
The application process was simple, I sent a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the CV, requesting an internship. I got a response within 7-10 days and had to give a short informal telephonic interview, following which I was selected.
First Impression and Work Environment
As such, the work environment is relatively relaxed when compared to a law firm. The people are friendly and supportive, and will explain every single doubt to you very patiently.
I was given some research to do, and a lot of drafting. I drafted about 10 legal documents during my internship. I was given work to do and a deadline to send it within, after which my work was evaluated, and I made the necessary changes.
My areas of interest were taken into consideration and I was allotted work accordingly.
Also, the positive work environment was very helpful, and I was taught from the very basics. This definitely helped hone my language and drafting skills.
None as such.
The fact that you should ask each and every doubt you have, no matter how small, because this place will definitely help you. I got an opportunity to read a lot and learn legalese, with drafting exposure, something most law firms don’t offer to interns.
