Main task (please elaborate)
my main task was to assist him and his juniors in court and in drafting work at the office. I was required to be well acquainted with the case that was to be dealt on that particular day. I was given work relating to filing and drafting of legal notices with some other works such as posting of legal notices and writing to applications. I was asked to read to IPC at least once before I complete my internship by one of the associates.
Overall experience; pros & cons
overall experience was great, it was fun working with his team, i had become really good friends with his team, we used to pull each other’s leg and joke a lot. pros- its an opportunity to learn who to draft legal notices and applications also i was taught some basics about defence lawyering. as I was the only intern at that time, i got the teams focus on me. I was having the advantage to approach any of the members of the team at any time for help. I was never without any work. most of the work that was given to me was related to my academic course and was aimed at teaching me something new. learnt a lot while enjoying, it was not a burden to travel at least 120 Km daily because the work and team were fun and friendly. cons- i can’t find a con.
