Interning in the Supreme Court of India has been one of the best experiences of my academic and pre-professional career. This internship has taught me more than just law, it gave me an exposure to the real side of litigation.
The entire staff was incredibly helpful, the work was interesting and the opportunities for networking, learning about the field of law and gaining exposure to public interest law were unparalleled. The internship also taught me a great deal of professional ethics.
The high point of my internship was attending the famous NJAC matter and hearing all the brilliant minds of the field argue the matter in the Court.

I started my internship with Little and Company because it was one of the oldest and reputed firms in India. Having heard the quality of work for interns, I wasn't disappointed with my 2 tenure of internships there. I worked under Mrs. Roshnek Dhalla who is the corporate law partner. The work environment was very friendly and everyone was approachable. The plus point was you could take work from anyone if you were idle. Hence I could grasp experience in diverse fields such as property law, corporate law, baking and finance and IPR. The experience at Little and Company helped me develop my base and work ethics and professionalism.

Internship at Mulla & Mulla Craigie Blunt & Caroe was a great learning experience. In order to explore my opportunities, I had interned with the firm in their litigation department. It was my first internship in litigation, as I always preferred non-litigation. On the very first day, the senior partner usually takes an interview to know your potential and assign work to you accordingly. I was lucky enough to have got a good mentor who not only assigned work but also made sure that I learn during the course of work.
Also, the partners and associates are always willing to help and guide the interns and thus the work culture is very student-friendly. Thus, my overall experience at this firm was excellent wherein the solicitors actually take the effort to teach the interns and also make sure that they render quality work in return for the same.

The main tasks at the firm entailed researching extensively on various clauses in an insurance contract and drafting of certain agreements. The seniors in the firm are extremely encouraging and are source of inspiration to work hard.
My internship at Bharucha & Partners involved work concerning general corporate matters, particularly relating to Company Law, Labour Law, Securities Laws, etc. The work delegated to short term interns will not involve anything beyond research work, however as a longer term, you may be entrusted with some substantial work.

The work environment at B&P is perfectly balanced as you are made to strive for perfection without over-burdening yourself. Work done efficiently and satisfactorily is well acknowledged. Overall, it was a good learning opportunity.
I worked with Hon'ble Justice Indrajit Mohanty of Odisha High Court. It was an enriching experience both academically and professionally. He used to discuss every matter going on the Court with me for almost an hour everyday and wanted my opinion and reasons for the same.

The best part about AZB is there is no team structure so an intern is effectively able to take all kinds of work and thus get maximum experience during their internship.
Working at DSK Legal was a remarkable experience. The kind of work given to the interns would improve the credentials of the intern.

I interned with Crawford Bayley & Co. and it was the best learning experience. From research to drafting I learnt every possible aspect of Maritime Law. The partner himself was more than willing to teach me every possible aspect in such a short span and appreciation from him acted as a cherry on the cake. Not only work but also the mannerism and professionalism you learn during your internship stays with you forever. Only lesson from firm was if you are willing to give your 100% then only firm would be interested in teaching you or else you can veil your time for a month and leave. Overall a wonderful working experience.
One of the most memorable internship experiences I have had was while interning in the chambers of Hon'ble Justice Revati Mohite Dere.
The work usually involved attending court proceedings and researching on various cases, which come before the bench.
Justice Dere was very approachable and responsive and at the end of the day we usually had discussions of the court proceedings of the day.
Interning under a High Court Judge is as prestigious as it sounds and Justice Dere made the experience of doing so even better. As brutal as she might be in the courtroom, if I would want a mentor in my life, it would be someone like Justice Dere.

If I have to describe my internship experience at Trilegal in one word I would say "wonderful". The work environment is exceptional. I was mainly assigned research work under the General Corporate Team. The associates were very helpful and patient, they would take time to explain you things and what they expect out of you. I was assigned to a really amicable mentor who guided me throughout my internship. I had to submit a research paper in my first week and give a presentation in front of my team in my last week. I often worked till late but the environment was so enthusiastic that I never minded staying till late. The associates treated interns with respect and refused me to address them as "ma'am or sir". It was an overall great experience.

All things considered the internship was very enriching and has considerably supplemented me in achieving my objective.

Regardless which year you belong to and what all subjects you have been taught, you’ll be made to study, understand and then research on that topic.

Great work, helpful people and an excellent work environment, these words best describe Krishna and Saurastri. The firm exclusively deals with IPR related matters, and an intern can get work based on various statutes of IPR and even beyond that. I as an intern got extensive research work on diverse topics, and made detailed reports on the said research for formulation of client notes or meetings. Above and beyond this, there is a constant work flow for drafting from the associates. The work environment is relaxed and professional. Punctuality and adhering to deadlines is appreciated at the firm.
As an Intern at Shardul Amarchand (Litigation team), my work experience was varied. I got to work on high profile matters and was always occupied, but they at times tend to expect too much from you as an Intern. Interaction with associates is quiet good, but absolutely no interaction with partner. Whenever they allot you a job, they’ll brief you about the entire background and case history so that you know what you are contributing to. Overall, a good learning experience.
