First-Day Formalities, Infrastructure, First Impression

I had an amazing online internship experience! There are no such formalities. It was so much fun learning about Legal research through WhatsApp messages. We delved into various case files and case laws, and I even got to learn how to file all the criminal documents required for the case. Reading judgements was also a blast!

Main Tasks

During my internship, I was tasked with reading through various files and messages to uncover any criminal documents. Additionally, I was assigned specific research tasks to analyze judgments and citations for particular cases. Through this experience, I gained a confident understanding of the legal field and its processes.

Work Environment

The work environment was generally positive and conducive. Communication was mainly done through messages and posts on the WhatsApp Broadcast Group. There isn’t much to say about it, except that sir would assign us limited tasks and occasionally inquire if we had any questions regarding the topics.

Good Things

Since it was an online internship, we had the flexibility to work on our college assignments and attend classes regularly. If you are interested in gaining knowledge about criminal law, then this internship is a good fit for you. However, it is important to stay up-to-date with the everyday posts and case laws to truly benefit from this opportunity.

Bad Things

We used to receive assignments and complete them, but it often felt like one-sided communication. We never received any response or feedback on whether we completed them correctly or not. Overall it was just us doing the work and not being acknowledged for the same.

Stipend

While we didn’t receive a stipend, we were still awarded a certificate for completing the program!
