Address: Chamber no. 121, SBS Block, Gate no. 8 District Court, Gurugram, India
• NAME OF INTERN, COLLEGE AND YEAR
Name: Rahul Rathee
College: Amity university, Noida
Year: 3rd year
It was a 1-month internship in the month of May-June.
• APPLICATION PROCESS WITH CONTACT DETAILS
I contacted him directly. Apart from this, any law pursuing student can apply for an internship by contacting his team at their office number.
• FIRST DAY FORMALITY
We were supposed to report at the Gurugram District Court at 9:30 am. After reaching their we were introduced to the entire team and a briefing about the work we have to do. Thereafter, we were asked to read a case file of the scheduled case later that day.
Around 11:30, we were asked to accompany Mr. Ishwar Sangwan to the courtroom where a criminal matter was listed. It was a very knowledgeable first day and the entire month to follow.
We usually worked in his chamber in the court or in the library as there were cases scheduled almost every day.
• MAIN TASK
As an intern, we were assigned case files to read and we were supposed to make our own notes over those cases, analyze the grounds and question of law. We were also supposed to accompany him to all the case hearings so as to analyze how the proceedings take place in a court. Hearing the arguments and judges response at the courts was quiet a learning process and an amazing experience. I was also thrilled to observe fierce and courageous arguments by the advocates during the court proceedings.
• WORK ENVIRONMENT
The work environment was very friendly and generous. Mr. Ishwar Sangwan was very helpful and understanding. They would help us understand the cases better by giving some guidelines beforehand.
No stipend was given.
• BEST THING
As it was my first internship, I would say it was by far the best experience that I had. He also assured us that we can contact him anytime for any help related to academics and other matters.
This is the right platform for those who believe in punctuality and hard work. We were introduced to many renowned advocates and were given a platform to grow.
• WORST THING
I would be happy to say that there is no worst thing about this internship.
• OFFICE TIMING
The timings were flexible but usually it was 9:30-4:00.
If you are an out-station student then you would easily get a PG around the courts or the office.
• LESSONS LEARNT
The most important lesson I have learnt during the whole internship is that Law is all about Logics, there is nothing about Law which is beyond understanding. Students mostly fails to know the logic behind the law which must be the very basic rule to understand any Law.
Opportunities are always there one just have to go for it. Hard work is the only key to learn and enhance your knowledge. One thing that I learnt better than anything else is to work hard and not worry about the results. Interning here has been the best so far, I learnt a lot and gained some unexplainable experiences.
