INTERNSHIP EXPERIENCES - JUST A FEW

Mili Verma, Vivekanand Institute of Professional Studies, Delhi (3rd  - 31st  July, 2017).

 

Application Process

One can apply for the internship by emailing their cover letter and CV at nkja@rediffmail.com and the shortlisted candidates will be contacted by Sir himself for a short interview.

It is recommended to apply 2 or 3 months prior to the commencement of your internship as Sir receives a significant number of applications.

 

Duration of internship

July 3, 2017 – July 31, 2017

First day, first impression

You’ll get the idea of what you’ll get to learn from sir on a very first day itself as he is a perfectionist and a highly organized person. I was introduced to all the co-interns, associates and office staff.

The day left me in anticipation of all the learning and new experiences that awaited me in the coming month.

 

Experience

I was fortunate enough to get the internship under Mr. Jaggi in the second year. Drafting is his forte so I got to learn from the very basics to all the intricacies of it.

Not only the drafting, Sir made sure that there should be an overall development of each intern who’s investing their time in the internship, therefore I was provided with a lot of exposure at the high court.

We were given many opportunities to sit with sir and observe the systematic way of client counseling, and we were also indulged in the process of discussing the entire case with Sir.

As Jaggi Sir is very observant and particular about English so he pinpoints the minutest mistakes and then always correct them by making you understand your mistake in a way that you’ll never make it again.

Mr. Jaggi is a highly experienced advocate so his cross-examination skills leave you in awe and are one of the most important things that you’ll get to learn there.

Including all the above-mentioned experiences, the small lessons about personality development, practical knowledge and Sir’s ‘out of the box’ ways of teaching you things was something that I’ll always cherish. As its Sir’s experience that speaks and he’s someone “who leads by example”.

 

Bad things

No bad things as such.

 

Good things

The office staff is very cooperative. You’ll be provided with enough work to keep you equipped for the entire day.

Apart from all the academically inclined lessons that you’ll get to learn, you’ll also get to learn a plenty of life lessons that sir has gained from his long and coherent experience.

One of the best parts of interning with Mr. Jaggi is the workspace. The environment in the chamber is very work-friendly.

Stipend

No stipend, but the learning experiences were so enriching that no monetary gain could have compensated it.

Meghna Nimbekar, Amity University (2nd July - 2nd August 2016)

 

Internship Experience

Like any other law student, I was apprehensive of going for my first internship. Little did I know, that working with Mr. Jaggi would bring out not only the Best in me, but also help me strengthen my confidence, which forms an integral part of a lawyer’s holistic development.

The work environment becomes all the more pleasant, with Mr. Jaggi taking care of each one of us like his own child. He does not hesitate to teach us the basic concepts of law first, and then move on to work on drafting, conveyancing and so on. Sir considers himself as our teacher first and teaches the best. His use of imagery and  the best of all possible words in the English language, helps us crave to learn more and strive to get better each time.

Sir and I have a very strong liking for Administrative Law and it becomes all the more interesting when he is talking to us about this particular field of Law. Sir gives all the interns a great forum all the time, and does not allow us to feel low at any point. He is a firm disciplinarian and this way, he helps his little ones to develop and maintain the image of an amazing Advocate.

Mr. Jaggi told us that he always wants to see us better than the rest, so that we have an edge over the others. This attitude of Sir’s is more than appealing and there always remains a quest for doing better than our own self, all the time.

Sir calls me to be extraordinary, which has always given me this boost in my thinking and also my confidence, so much so that I always work harder in order to keep that word for myself.

It is an amazing and a fun learning experience at his Chambers. One should not even think for jiffy before applying for an internship with sir. That’s how you say that God has His little Angels to bring you to the best possible position!

Harshit Hassanwalia, Amity University, Noida (23rd May - 22nd  June 2016)

 

Application Procedure

I applied through a contact by sending my CV, but was selected for the Internship only after being Interviewed and tested by Mr. Jaggi.

 

Internship Experience

Mr. Jaggi grilled me really hard in the Interview prior to my Joining but fortunately I was selected by him and hence was told to Join the office from Monday, May 23, 2016 for Summer Internship.

I was pretty nervous at the instance, but gradually, I gained confidence and the rest of the weeks went well, and without much hesitation, and shilly-shally. I was astonished to see that he had around 600 Internship Applications, from which, he had chosen only two of us, to be interns under him, in the summer holidays.

The starting days were a little awkward and uncomfortable for me as I was a little timid in mixing up with my colleagues, intern-mates and staff. But as days passed by, I became comfortable with every office colleague . There were two clerks, a Senior Associate and a fellow Intern with me, at the time of my joining.

Sir had kept an Ice-Breaker session for the Interns and Staff, so that we could mix up quickly as he had this idea that the optimum results can only be obtained, by a healthy partnership, between Staff and the Office Colleagues.

The Chamber was very spacious and immaculate and the milieu in the workplace was in itself encouraging for Staff and the Interns. Working Environment was very good and the interiors were apt for an Advocates Chamber

Mr. Jaggi entrusted his full confidence in every duty that he gave me, and also was ever ready to help me, with one and all difficulties, that I had encountered   in completing any work, given by him.

Sir made strenuous efforts to teach me the extremely vital art of Legal Draftsman ship. He made me draft many Legal Documents, and, also taught me different ways through which Legal Documents can be drafted effectively.  He said that Drafting is the soul of Legal Advocacy and says that if you have mastered the art of Legal Draftsman Ship, then you will automatically conquer the Legal world.

Mr Jaggi also made me visit some court cases in the High Court and Lower Court and accompany his fellow associates. I was given a lot of work of different kind’s everyday ranging from Drafting Legal Documents to Legal Notices to writing replies to letters, taking dictations and doing research on various topics for helping Sir is various cases.

I was bamboozled to see, the varsity of cases that Sir handled, and still showed no signs of annoyance and confusion whatsoever, in working on all of them. His calm and composed nature has helped him to cope up with such amount of work load, even at this age.

He is an Epitome of knowledge and I bet you will find very less other Lawyers who would match stature when it comes to the Knowledge about International Laws, English Law being his Forte. He was basically an encyclopaedia of knowledge for us as he would clear out our every doubt, beyond the level of any doubt.

Mr Jaggi is a master, when it comes to the art of Legal Draftsman ship. His stupendous command over English language, can make you doubt if you were studying in an English Medium or not. His witty sarcasm can make you run for cover, as I bet, very less can subdue him with literary power.

He always used to say that sarcasm is like electricity, half of India still doesn’t get it, whereas Brits always have all Bulbs shining. He made me aware about a lot of figure of speeches. like Paraprosdokians which are very famous in the West. He would everyday come up with a different news article or share some unique news article with us.

Mr Jaggi made strenuous efforts to teach us some basic voice modulations while speaking in courts. He also taught me some basic rules of Client Interviewing and taking notes side by side.

Mr. Jaggi focused only on two things:

  • Punctuality

  • Outcome

While taking my Internship Certificate, at the end of the 1 month fruitful journey, Sir made it clear that his chambers doors are always open for me and I can come here any day and anytime.

I would like to add one more thing to summarise it all, there are only few Top Lawyers like Mr. Jaggi who would take such pains, to bring out the best out of you, to teach you some important practical things that no one is able to learn until you start practising as a lawyer.

He will undoubtedly make a lasting impression on your personality, and will try to shape your behaviour slowly up to the aristocratic levels of which he possesses. He had a quote hanging on the wall behind his chair, which was a definite eye catcher, and hence I would like to mention the same – “The Greatest trust between a man and man is the trust of giving counsel”.

Anushree Kanodia, Farfield Institute of Management and Technology (1st July 2015- 15th July 2015)

 

Application Procedure

I forwarded my Resume through a contact, but I was selected by a proper procedure and an Interview.

 

Organisation

Internship at the chambers of Mr. Navin Kumar Jaggi, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court, has been an experience that could change your outlook towards the entire Law career.

The Experience of working under Sir, certainly, serves you with an opportunity, to become a toast, while enjoying your Passion of being a Lawyer which is more than just traditional and arduous file work.

I used to go to High Court, New Delhi, which is just walking distance from Mandi house metro station.

 

Timings

The reporting time was 9.00 a.m.

 

My Internship

I was a part of a Group that had three more interns, who all were Senior to me, but I could really find myself being accepted, and that surely enhances your confidence.

Certainly it is not just about working, but to work in a group, and still stand as an individual lawyer.

Every intern was assigned the work, but the aim was not to laden the intern with workload, but first, they make up to you for a congenial working environment, before entrusting you with work in consonance with one’s area of interest and thus, therefore, worked is assigned accordingly.

I was more curios about, leaning to Draft a Legal Documents, Sir, used to teach different ways through which, I can have command over my Legal Writing. Dictations and sometimes, my own Research helped me to draft Notices, Letters, Case Briefings, etc.

The most peculiar attribute I could point out here, is that you are assigned the tasks directly by Sir, which makes it easy to interact, and the warmth, support and trust he shows in you, encourages you to work harder and better.

Sir, used to share all his experiences and views, about all the Cases, he had undertaken. The more you listen to a Lawyer, who had been highly successful in his life, the more you get to learn.

After finishing our Tasks for the day, I had a two way conversation on Current Issue pertaining to Legal Areas, Social Issues, and tips to handle Clients.

The best part, of the day was when a new Client approached, and you were given a chance to know about the entire matter from the very beginning. Sir, used to ask, us our views, on the particular matter and we were explained the pros and cons of our ideas of solving the matter.

 

Good Things

There are perks of interning under a Senior Lawyer, as I was enabled with a Court Entry Pass and I had an opportunity, to go the Court on the Dates Sir, had Matters. I was later asked about my Legal Observations during the Matter, which gives you a chance to think as a lawyer rather than just being an Audience.

The Day usually started with a wonderful Coffee and after working hard and studying and drafting documents, the High Court Canteen can always help you to leave work behind and enjoy your Meal to the fullest.

Sir was kind enough to pay, for food and drinks, you consumed the entire day, and he too joined us for the Lunch and Coffee breaks.

 

Conclusion

Summarizing my whole experience, I would say, while internships can equip you, for your journey and provide you with good shoes, what you achieve is not dependent upon the shoes you wear but the steps you take and a good internship can provide you both, good shoes and a right Direction.

First day I entered the Chamber, with preconceived notion about myself, being an ordinary child who wanted to become a lawyer, but what I gained in a month had not just changed my perception about the life of a Lawyer but also about myself.

I now find myself to be more Determined, Disciplined, Willing to work and Passionate about my Future as a Lawyer.

Yashu Khurana. Vivekananda Institute of Professional Studies (8th July to 12th August, 2016)

 

How big was the office? Team strength?

The office is situated in the Old lawyers’ chambers building of The Hon’ble High Court of Delhi, amidst the chambers of some very illustrious lawyers’ such as Mr. Kapil Sibal and Amit Sibal etc.

 

Application Procedure

I opted the e­mail mode of application, to apply for internship, I received, a very prompt response from Adv. Mr. Hemant Arya, the most respected associate at the chambers, after of course, himself Mr. Jaggi. Two days prior to my joining as an intern I received a call from Mr. Hemant Arya to come prepared for a short selection interview as there had been an overflow of interns. 900 applicants for the July month only.

Graciously I was able to stand past a very critical and microscopic oral examination based on legal and mental strengths and weaknesses, of all the interns conducted by Mr. Jaggi himself.

For all other aspirants I suggest: “apply atleast two­three months prior from your desired month for internship” at Jaggi, Jaggi and Jaggi.

E­mail id: nkja@rediffmail.com

 

First impression. First day, formalities etc.

On my first day of Internship I was given a tour of the Chamber and introduced to the most diligent and knowledgeable associates (Mr. Hemant Arya and Ms. Shambhavi), I have till date met. Then I was assigned an associate who used to delegate and confer me work.

Later I was also introduced to the strenuous and respected staff at the Chambers i.e Mr. Mahadev Mandal (Office Clerk) and Mr. Shailesh (Court Clerk) for Mr. N.K. Jaggi. Lastly on my first day I was asked to fill a form for my monthly court pass after which I had a nice and pleasant conversation with Mr. Jaggi.

The most essential tip required to truly understand the way things at the Chambers work is that, you will never ever be scolded for your mistakes or faults, instead you would be praised and rubbed of with the highest degree of sarcasm and wittiness a man can ever understand.  (Pun intended).

This tip was given to me by Mr. Jaggi himself and it was the sole basis of endurance through this extremely high level of sarcasm.

 

Main tasks

At the Chambers you get to choose from a vast array of work ranging from International cases to cases at district court level (mostly civil). I was given a lot of drafting work such as making notices, reply to notices, preparing list of events for cases, case summary and also a Review Petition to be presented in The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India.

Besides drafting interns are also given extensive research work on various facets of law. This research includes not only finding Indian case laws, but also the developments in international law also.

Interns are also required to assist their associates during court visits and in filing of fresh cases. During court visits we are required to make precise and concise record of the concerned proceedings and listen to the opposite counsel etc.

Apart from all the legal knowledge that you get from the aforestated tasks the best work/opportunity is to interact personally with Mr. Navin Kumar Jaggi, he is a fountain of wisdom, an elixir of knowledge in almost all facets of law. Besides all the legal knowledge I was able to absorb, I also learnt true British mannerism and behavior as depicted by Mr. Jaggi at all times.

Thus for a Delhi brat like me the most strenuous task was to try and meet with his level of etiquettes.

 

Work Environment, People

The chamber provides a very energizing and revitalizing environment to work in; it will bind you in a work­friendly aura the moment you enter. All people at the office are extremely generous.

Office timings for interns are from 9.30 am to 5.00 pm. At the office you will never be treated as an intern, but as a family member always.

 

Best things

The best thing is that you get to work with Mr. Navin Kumar Jaggi and his associates. You get plenty of delicious food and other beverages. You also get to explore some unheard areas of law.

 

Bad things

The bad thing about this place is that, the day you leave the office you do not leave as the same person, as you were, on the first day of your internship, you will leave as a much taller person not only in terms of your legal knowledge but also interns of who you are as an human being.

 

Stipend

Interns at the office do not get any stipend but they get a very special surprise from sir on their last day of internship which is greater than any form of stipend.

For secrecy purpose, the same cannot be disclosed.

My Internship Experience

My internship at Jaggi Jaggi & Jaggi has taught me more than I could have imagined. As Legal intern, I feel my duties were diverse, and ever-changing. Sometimes it’s tough to recall everything I have taken in over the past month, but I feel that the lessons learnt are some of the most beneficial lessons I have learnt.

My internship has been very useful in honing my legal draftsmen skills. It has also broadened my knowledge in Legal field. I know more now than I did before I started.

When I took my first step into Mr. Jaggi’s Chamber, I was instantly overwhelmed. I was very nervous. I sat down, waited a couple minutes, and then given the okay to walk into Sir’s office. I walked in and waited patiently. After a few moments he asked “So you want to intern in our firm?” I mustered up whatever courage I had and responded “Yes Sir, I definitely do.” After which I was asked to draft a Legal application. Although I wasn’t exactly a trained professional, I was determined to be successful and show them what I was capable of.

The first couple of days were filled with an exciting frenzy of activity. Whether it was looking up case examples to devise an argument for a Case or drafting Legal Notice on different Cases, I was constantly being given different puzzles to solve.

Sometimes, I also used to assist the associates for preparing them for court proceedings such as getting orders from Delhi High Court and Supreme Court websites, flagging the annexure in the files etc.

A lot of work was given to interns and a great respect was given to them. So, if some work was given to an intern then it was expected that work should be done carefully and properly because the associates trusted their interns a lot.

Moreover, the amount of work also depended upon the fact that an intern was interested to do. Sometimes, one had to take initiative to get work but there was no dearth of work.

The associates were friendly in nature. Most of the work was assigned to me by Mr. Hemant Arya and he helped me a lot while doing the work. Sometimes, he asked to work on a particular case and I had briefed him on the matter.

I got to learn several things from Mr. Hemant and he was very friendly and at the same time he also expected the work given by him should be done properly with due care. He also shared his experiences including why he chose litigation over any other career options.

Further, he was a valuable source for getting advice on stuff related to law school activities, academics, mooting and what to opt for after completing law school.

After three strenuous and exhilarating weeks, I successfully completed my internship. Over the span of three weeks, I had learned a host of new skills and developed a completely new perspective towards the field of Law.

Jaggi Sir’s drafting skills are legendary, so to speak. It is something the likes of which I have never seen being myself coming from a legal background, and the way he used to draft, left us interns in awe.

He not only taught us the nuances of law, but also coached us on how to modulate and throw one’s voice in a courtroom.

I don’t think there are many lawyers who would actually put in effort, the way Mr. Jaggi does, just to teach students who might never even remember him in the future.

His practice area was diverse. Civil matters are his finesse, on which too I had the honor of working with him. Mr. Jaggi knows the Code of Civil Procedure (Act V of 1908) by heart.

If you wish to truly learn how to be a lawyer, and not just to make a quick buck or study the law; then this is the place to be.

You won’t get comfortable seats all the time and the luxury to leave by sunset, but the knowledge Mr. Jaggi has is unparalleled.

There was nothing that I disliked about my internship with Jaggi Sir, as my eagerness to learn was insatiable.

Thing that might repulse some people is that he is very precise and seeks Perfection in Drafting. Jaggi Sir can be fussy and meticulous regarding drafting of legal documentation.

My time at Jaggi Jaggi & Jaggi, although demanding, was in many ways the most intellectually stimulating experience I have had in that it required me to think creatively and engineer solutions to a variety of problems.

It was incredible to be surrounded by Lawyers that performed such complicated work on a day to day basis and it was truly exciting to be immersed in the profession.

My experience has also made it incredibly clear that I want to with the law in some fashion and that I hope to further my understanding of the fascinating world of Law. Now, I am confident that I can draft every kind of Legal Documentation. This internship is great place to learn drafting and certainly I learned a lot in that aspect.
