Work environment, people
When it comes to work Shobhit sir is a hard task master otherwise he is very co-operative and friendly. What is expected from interns is punctuality and hard work.
He communicates with interns on a daily basis and discusses the ongoing cases.
He is always ready to take up your queries when you are doing his work & trust me I’ve even called him at 0300 hrs in the morning just to ask some work related questions and he never got irritated.
Other associates are also very nice and co-operative. There is no pressure as such and one can enjoy the work.
The best part is that Shobhit sir solves all your legal queries, ensures that you are working properly and learning out of the work you do.
If you are overburdened with work on a particular day he will give you off the other day.
Some of the clerical work got really tedious. Sometimes you will get overburdened and get frustrated.
What did you do to chill? Co-interns, colleagues
I was interning along with my friend, so we always used to chill while we were doing work in Ladies Bar room of Saket District Court Complex plus if we had time we even used to hang out at Select City Walk for movies.
He generally does not give stipend but he was very happy with my work so I was given Rs. 3000 stipend.
