Internship Experience at Calcutta High Court

By- Antalina Guha, Ajeenkya DY Patil University, 4th Year, B.A. LL.B

Name and address of the Organisation

Chamber of Mr. Satyaraj Banerjee, Calcutta High Court.

12/2, Old Post Office Road. Kolkata- 700001

Duration of Internship

June 12th– July 12th,2019

Application Procedure

I sent my application through e-mail. The application should contain the Curriculum Vitae, a statement of purpose, a recommendation letter along with a certificate stating the duration of the internship.

Major Roles and Responsibilities

My main responsibilities during the internship included attending court proceedings and preparing summaries on cases, conferring with clients and other parties involved to gather case information, taking part in meetings, reviewing legal information, and proofing documents.

Working Environment

Everyone at the office was welcoming and cooperative. My guide helped me whenever there was any difficulty. There is no work pressure so one gets the opportunity to learn. 

Highlight of Internship

Running from one courtroom to the other which is located at the opposite end of the building, keeping track of all the cases of the particular day. 

The highlight of the internship was when I got the chance to assist Mr. Satyaraj Sir during a high profile case of an Australian client regarding Trademark Infringement.

Overall experience

A law student must intern at a High Court, at least once, to understand how the system works. What we learn from our books is very much different than what one can experience standing in a court room. One can watch and learn court manners and how the court proceedings are conducted.

Overall it was a great experience working with Mr. Satyaraj Banerjee. He taught me how to file for recovery of money suit, bail petition.

Skills required for application

One should have a basic knowledge of the subject. You will have an upper hand if you are well versed in any particular topic.

Office Timings

9:30 am- 6:30 pm

Extension

You can extend your internship but you need to inform the team beforehand.
