Internship is an essential part of a law course curriculum, which offers opportunities to law students where they come to know about challenges in the life of a lawyer, besides preparing them for their future endeavours. While the law students memorize legal terms, codes and transcripts from their course curriculum, internships enable them to learn various legal skills including advocacy, docketing, prosecution and other such expertise.


Careers360 brings you internship experiences from students of New Law College, Pune. In this article, budding law professionals share their project briefs, key responsibilities, learning and challenges faced at their respective law firms during their internship period.

Below are the snap-shots of their internship experiences –


Vishal Khare

Vishal Khare – Hailing from Madhya Pradesh, Vishal is currently pursuing his final year of BBA LL.B programme from the law school. Vishal had done his internship from Dubey and Partners (Edulegal), Pune Office.

Project brief: I was assigned a project of conducting legal compliance audit of a trust and a group of schools located in Kirloskarvadi, Sangli. My core responsibility was to study and monitor education related legislations at the school from scratch. I had to visit Kirloskarvadi to prepare a legal audit report and present the same at the corporate office of Kirloskar brothers. I was given the freedom of choosing my own style of work for completing the task.

Learning: My key learning included educational laws, Maharashtra land laws, and laws applicable to hospitals and nursing homes.


Surbhi Wadhwa

Surbhi Wadhwa – Surbhi is currently in final year of her BBA law programme. She did her internship from a company secretary firm- Apte Joshi and Associates.

Key Responsibilities: I used to draft various legal documents, conducted research, attended company law board meetings and High Court proceedings for status update of company cases.

Project brief: I had been assigned various projects such as organizing board and general meetings. I had also played an important role in conducting annual general meetings of various listed and unlisted companies.

Learning: The internship at the company secretary firm gave me an opportunity to have a better understanding of my legal skills, besides providing me a clear vision of what I used to study during my college classes. The work culture was competitive and enthusiastic.

Challenges: My biggest challenge was research, upon which I had to work majorly. My mentors at the firm would teach me, while I learnt the technicalities of the research-work and penned it down.


Shrestha Nanda

Shrestha Nanda – The Kanpur boy, who is currently pursuing his final year LLB programme from New Law College Pune, interned at K.G. Bhagat & Co. He shares that he learnt about legal documentation process in his internship.

Responsibilities: I was responsible for drafting legal sheets and research on the cases. I was also involved in entire documentation process of court-cases including learning the process to receive certified copies from the courts.

Project brief: I was involved in two projects related to Telecom Dispute Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT). My role was to brief seniors, draft case applications and research for the judgments.

Experience: The internship helped me in nurturing my advocacy skills besides improving my drafting and researching abilities. My internship at K.G Bhagat & Co. taught me more than I could have ever imagined.

Challenges: During the initial days of internship, I found myself in a difficult situation where I could not get through the technicality of cases as it was the very first time I was handling a TDSAT case. I also faced difficulty while drafting TDSAT applications. But in course of time, with the assistance and guidance of seniors and mentors, I was able to cope up with these challenges and would also brief the cases to them.


Aman AgrawalAman Agrawal – The Pune guy, Aman, completed his internship from a Pune based law firm- Hariani & Co.

Project brief: I was working under a litigation team and assisted my seniors in various cases by carrying out a number of works like research or drafting and filing case sheets.

Learning & Experience: It was during my internship, when I used to visit courts and sit through the court proceedings. I would learn actual way of presenting cases, defending clients and improve advocacy skills, which we used to do in moot-courts. But, witnessing the actual court proceeding was a more realistic experience than what we used to do in moot-courts. It was indeed a rich experience.

which one i should choose amity law school noida or bharatiya vidyapeeth pune for BALLB?

abhinav singh 14th Jul, 2019

Amity Law School Noida is a top-notch college for pursuing BA LLB. It has a very good reputation with law students being placed over international as well as government firms. However, for admission, you will have to clear GGSIPU eligibility criteria. Amity Law School has a great campus and infrastructure for maintaining a good studying environment. You can choose Bharathi Vidyapeeth if you want to study in Pune, otherwise, Amity excels in all standards as compared to BVP. Best of Luck.
