What resources did you use to find your internship?
Was the internship paid?
What were your expectations for this experience?
To learn about litigation from the very basics.
Describe your first day (in 100 words):
I was a bit nervous but the attitude of my boss was quite pleasant and helpful which made me comfortable later. On the first day itself i learned about drafting , filing and inspecting a case file. I learned that the journey ahead is gonna be full of struggle and hard work.
How would you describe the culture within the organization (ways in which co-workers interact or don’t interact) and how does this fit with your “ideal” employer?
Co-workers did interact with the interns but they don’t have enough time to sit by you and explain you each and everything.
What new skills have you learned since beginning your experience?
Drafting , filing , inspecting a file , etiquette of a court room.
What types of tasks did you discover that you enjoy or excel at completing?
Filing, taking dates and passovers from the Judges.
What tasks were less attractive or fulfilling?
Long lines for filing , getting signatures of almad and lordships.
What about your internship do you absolutely despise/hate or leaves a bad taste in your mouth?
It was fine, neither too bad nor too good.
If you were running this organization, what would you change and why?
They make interns do so much work they should probably provide stipend. The senior advocates should devote more time to teach various jobs to the interns.
What about your internship is the most surprising to you (i.e., what did you least expect going into the experience) and what lesson(s) can you draw from this?
So much casual and informal behaviour of the boss surprised me. One should not get nervous and be confident.
How does this internship relate to your long-term educational or career goals?
It motivated me more towards practicing criminal litigation.
Did the internship provide you with any insights that you hadn’t anticipated?
What recommendations would you give to other students doing an internship at this organization?
If you want to learn the basics from the very job of a clerk opt for this firm. I recommend this firm only for 1st and 2nd year students.
