Name. College. Year of Study
Neel Narsinghani. In the 2nd Year (6th Trimester) of NMIMS School Of Law, Pursuing B.B.A. LL.B (Hons.)
Name of the organization. City
JPS Legal, Mumbai.
Duration of the internship
How big was the office? Team strength?
JPS Legal is boutique law firm, situated at Borivali (West), also has an office at Marine Lines, but the suburban office is mostly functional.
Considering the spaces people have in Mumbai, the office was big enough, if not huge. During my internship, I had 2 other interns working with me under Jimit P Shah Sir.
Application procedure. Internship contact details
I secured my internship applying through Internshala, but then, one could also apply by sending their CV at firstname.lastname@example.org
Duration in weeks. No. of days/week. Timings
I had interned for a period of six months (26 Weeks Approximately). 6 days a week.
Timings were flexible.
As I had to attend my college, I used to be at office by 2, and leave by 7 – 7:30. Other interns who didn’t attend college used to reach office by 11:30- 12:00.
Accommodation: how, where, how was it?
I used to stay with my cousins. But finding a PG or Flat in the vicinity is relatively easier.
First impression. First day, formalities etc.
On the first day I was briefed about the sector the firm works in.
Also, I was asked to make a few agreements for a client of ours.(For a first timer, it was quite challenging though, but then co-interns or sir could be asked for help).
It being a Securities law firm, I mostly drafted chapters for the DRHP. At times we were made to visit clients’ office to get the details which were required by us.
Also, at regular intervals, different work was delegated to us, which included drafting Gift deeds, Leave and license agreements, Wills, Employment agreements, etc.
Also, this once I was given an opportunity to get a gift deed registered with the Sub registrar for a client of ours.
Work could get challenging at times, but then that is when I learnt the most.
Work environment, people
Sir and Co-Interns were extremely helpful.
So, the environment wasn’t that strict.
If compared to most internships, I was delegated much work and responsibility here, which being the reason I could grasp much more about the sector.
Not really though. It would get tiring at times because I had to attend the college too, but so will be the case at any other office.
What did you do to chill? Co-interns, colleagues
Depends on how good co-interns you get. I had co-interns who were studying in GLC, and were localities. So, ya, it was always better to be with people well acquainted with the city.
Anything else you’d like to tell
One most important criterion for getting through the interview here was that one should be willing to work cat least for a period of 3 months.
The biggest lesson could be that during my internship, time and again, I was asked to stay focused on the quality of the work.
As sir believes that no matter how much the client is paying, it the quality that will set us out of the ordinary.
