Name, College, Year of Study
My name is Aditya Dogra, I am a 3rd year Law student from Maharaja Agrasen Institute of Management Studies, IP University.
Work from Home Internship.
15th May 2020 to 14th July 2020.
For my syllabus mandated summer internship, like all other interns, I did an Online Internship Program. As because of the pandemic situation in the country, the courts were closed and online hearing of urgent matters was being done.
I worked under the law firm Mittal and Associates. Mr. S.S. Mittal was the advocate I followed and worked under for the most part and was instrumental in my learning process and acted as a guide and mentor throughout my stay and internship.
I interned at the online Internship programme for a month , and over the course of the time I interned, I learned various legal work and that helped me to acquaint myself better with respect to the field of law .I was allotted some research work regarding property laws, which I was yet to study. The legal system in real life is much more than what we read in our course books. These were four weeks of immense hard work and learning.
What I Learnt the Most During the Internship
Internship provided a platform for practical application of classroom knowledge, provided me an exposure to the judicial system of our country and its technicalities, and helped me develop my research skills. What I experienced during the internship was that, the most important duty as a law intern is to observe the workings of whatever environment you find yourself in. Many students go into law expecting it to always be dramatic and exciting. However, it’s important to come to terms with it as a job that, has both exciting and mundane parts.
During the Internship I learned various aspects of the Law, and also realised that the reality of the courtrooms are very different from what I initially thought. I learned various aspects of Property Laws and was assigned to do some research work regarding the same.
The work environment was extremely supportive and conducive towards promoting better research and analytical skills. Valuable feedback was provided by the team after every submission. I could approach the team through e-mail for any queries at any time. Sometimes they would not respond to queries through mail but we could contact them on WhatsApp and all questions would be clarified. The team was friendly, supportive and encouraging which aided in doing quality research.
Certificate of Internship.
Since, it was a virtual internship, I could not get a chance to go to the courts and learn various aspects of the law. As a Law Student it is the most important thing to do, if you want to establish yourself in the field of litigation.
No Stipend was given.
My first Internship experience taught me a lot, and now with Law Bhoomi, I am taking my experience forward and that is helping me to evolve further in the legal field.
