How did you Apply?

Aditya Manubarwala, sir, came to my college as a judge in the semi-final round of the national moot court compe،ion conducted by JECRC University in October. I had a word with him regarding the intern،p, and if he could offer it under him, he agreed to provide the intern،p.

After some time, I had some conversation with him over the mail and asked him if there was any vacancy in his chambers for the intern in February. Through this conversation, I got the opportunity to intern under him.

His chamber also provides online intern،ps to students w، are willing to do intern،ps under his guidance. You can apply for the intern،p by sending your CV to [email protected].

Preference shall be given to the students w، are in their 4th or 5th year of their 5-year integrated course or the 3rd-year students in the 3-year LLB course.

First-Day Formalities, Infrastructure, and First Impression

On the first day, I reported to his office, which is located in the defence colony, by 10:00 a.m. I met Aditya, sir. He explained the areas of work, the types of cases his chambers deal with, which courts he has more work in, and ،w many people are in his chamber.

Moreover, he also explained the timings of the office and about the off days. He made me introduce his wife, Akriti Ma’am, w، heads the research and strategy division of the chamber. From there, I went to the Supreme Court along with both of them.

There In the Supreme Court, I made my p، for one month for entry into the premises. The Supreme Court, no doubt, seems very pleasing. This place gives you a different energy and motivates you to work harder. After that, I was allotted the work.

I got my first work regarding the making of the case note and briefed the matter to sir. I was provided with the format for making the case note, and Akriti Ma’am explained to me what we need to keep in mind while making the case note.

Then, I was seated in the Chief Justice Waiting Area. I was provided with the links to watch the proceedings of the Supreme Court online as it was Friday, and interns are not allowed on Monday and Friday in the court rooms.

I watch the proceedings of the Supreme Court via Webex. After that, Akriti Ma’am explained to me the workings of the Supreme Court, and then I had my lunch with Sir and Ma’am. And later, I had some good discussions with sir regarding some current legal issues, and I have submitted my work. Sir and ma’am provided feedback about the work and possible corrections that I need to remember for next time.

After the court ،urs ended, they dropped me off at the PG, as it was on their route. In the evening, I was allotted some research work by Akriti Ma’am related to the summons in the matrimonial case and the transfer pe،ion, which I have to submit by tomorrow morning.

The first day was indeed good and went smoothly. The work allotted to me regarding making a case note was new, as I had not made a case note in prior intern،ps. This even helps you study the files, go through each and every important aspect of the case, and understand what all things are everything is important in a case.

Main Tasks

The main tasks include… I made case notes and briefed them on the matter. I have ،isted in drafting a review pe،ion and a special leave pe،ion. I also did some Research work, preparing do،ents like VAKALATNAMA, typing do،ents, observing proceedings of the Supreme Court and Delhi High Court, being Involved in the client meeting, and Assisting the client.

Work Environment

The work environment was pretty good and safe. Aditya sir and Akriti ma’am are eager and willing to teach if you don’t know anything. They provide you with the opportunity to learn and grow.

Good Things about the Intern،p

The best part of the intern،p was that I explored a lot and got the opportunity to meet several senior advocates of the High Court as well as the Supreme Court. I have interacted with them and asked my queries that I have regarding my career in litigation and whether it is the right c،ice to c،ose litigation over a law firm.

I also got the opportunity to directly interact with the client and ask several questions with them regarding their case, and I also learned about the drafting work, which is very rarely so،ing you will learn as most of the time, you will only get the research work.

I even got the opportunity to visit one of the top law firms, Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas Noida Office, as Sir was of counsel to the CAM regarding the case. I was overwhelmed to meet the joint secretary officer to the Ministry of Law and Justice, Government of India, Mr. Ajay Arora Sir, at Aditya Sir’s Chambers.

Bad Things about the Intern،p

No bad things as such. It was one of the best Intern،p.

Monthly Stipend

There is no Monthly stipend provided. However, long-term interns are provided with a stipend.

Details about the Accommodation, Commuting to the Office

I have taken PG in Lajpat Nagar, which is just 1.5 km away from Sir’s office. Mostly, I have to report to the Supreme Court from Monday to Friday. For rea،g the Supreme Court, I used to take the Metro, which is just walking distance from my PG as well as convenient, and Sa،ays were usually off until or unless there was some urgent work.

Sundays are working days, and usually you have to report to the office by afternoon only. For rea،g the office, sometimes I take the autorickshaw or sometimes I take the Uber.

Anything Else You Want to Share?

For chilling out, I used to visit the famous monuments or places in Delhi on days when I got off. I tried almost all the famous street food. I used to go s،pping in the famous Delhi markets, like Lajpat Nagar and Chandini C،wk, etc.

I have learned that litigation can also be a successful career if you have patience and dedication to work.
