Luckily this summer I got the opportunity to intern with Constitution Connect.The internship was really interesting as well as knowledgeable. Although it was virtual, it hardly affected my interest or excitement for the internship. I came to learn a lot from the tasks that were assigned to me. Rather than being just theoretical, the task/(s) also helped me gain practical knowledge. Filing RTI, reading case laws, drafting, allowed me to connect my courses in law school to praxis.

I interned at CRY (Child Rights and You), an NGO located in Bangalore, India. The organization is focused on protecting the rights of the underprivileged children in India and ensuring their holistic development. This was my first experience working at a professional organization. I have learnt a lot through this experience through researching particular legislations pertaining to child rights. The activity which I enjoyed most was crowdfunding and the purpose for which these funds were being raised. We were given a target to raise Rs. 10,000 by the end of our internships and I managed to complete my target in the same week itself. This was a proud moment for me!
I interned with Civis this summer. I am happy that I got plenty of opportunities to learn as well as showcase my potential as a lawyer. One of the major skills I learnt through this experience was the ability of critical thinking. Also, a challenging task was to prepare for an interview with Miss Arya, labor law specialist of our country. I prepared a video describing the Delhi Master Plan of 2040 in which I had to include the salient points of the plan. This was the first time wherein I got an opportunity to make a video of a plan of at least 500 pages.
My internship experience under the supervision of Adv. Rajat Gangwar was one of the best experiences so far. It was through this experience that I learnt about litigation and much to my surprise it started getting interesting for me. Working with Mr. Gangwar on cases not only improved my research skills but also helped me hone my analytical skills. Additionally, regular feedback sessions from Mr. Gangwar helped me a lot.
My internship experience with the chambers of Mr. Arjun Harkauli, AOR, Supreme Court was one of its kind. I got a chance to explore different laws pertaining to income tax, privacy, excessive police powers, partition disputes, succession, commercial disputes etc. Reading interesting case files, identifying issues and the reasoning of the Courts was one of the major tasks that I took up. Apart from that, I indulged in research on several thought provoking legal issues. This has not only polished my researching skills but also opened up my mind and broadened my perspective on those propositions.
My internship at Wadia Ghandy gave me a different perspective to legal practice. During my internship, I worked on relevant issues related to Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016; Arbitration and Conciliation Act,1996 and other statutes. This is the first time I was preparing a legal draft and it felt like an achievement in itself. These three months have been extremely crucial to hone my research, problem solving and drafting skills.
