• NAME OF INTERN, COLLEGE AND YEAR
Shaurya Aggarwal,1st Year, Amity university, Noida.
It was a 1 month internship in the month of December.
• 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 patiala house court at 9:30 am. After reaching their we were introduced to the entire team along with the person who would help us out throughout the internship. Thereafter, we were asked to read a case file of the scheduled case later that day.
After the lunch, we accompanied Advocate Raju Dudani sir to the courtroom for the hearing of the cases.
It was a very knowledgeable first day and the entire month to follow.
We usually worked in his chamber in high court or in the library as there were cases scheduled almost everyday.
• MAIN TASK
As an intern, we were assigned case files to read and we were supposed to make our own notes over those cases, analyse the grounds and question of law. We were also supposed to accompany him to all the case hearings so as to analyse how the proceedings take place in a court.
We would accompany him to Patiala house court, High court and Saket court and other district courts. 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. The staff there 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.
I could always have a conversation with sir on almost any topic, he is very knowledgeable and would give out the best stand points. 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.
The office staff is helpful and friendly and you will learn something from each one of them.
• 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 will easily get a PG around the courts or the office.
• LESSONS LEARNT
“Forget what hurt you in the past, but never forget what it taught you. However, if it taught you to hold onto grudges, seek revenge, not forgive or show compassion, to categorize people as good or bad, to distrust and be guarded with your feelings then you didn’t learn a thing.
God doesn’t bring you lessons to close your heart. He brings you lessons to open it, by developing compassion, learning to listen, seeking to understand instead of speculating, practicing empathy and developing conflict resolution through communication. If he brought to you perfect people, how would you ever learn to spiritually evolve?”
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 alot and gained some unexplainable experiences.
