My first week in office is almost over.
I did not write about my first day or my second dya..coz I did not want to sound judjemental... or rather I wanted to make sure that the first impression lasts...
My office is in C.P. more precisely on the Kasturba Gandi Marg. The name of the buildidng is Naurang House. Its a red and a black bulding with the office of Desai and Dewanji being on the fourth floor.
The office is not huge. But its new. It is an offshoot of their Mumbai office. About 20 lawyers minus the partners work there... there are two partners apart from the usual crowd of lawyers. They were very nice to me on my first day. I even got some work to do... on the second day also I was working the whole time. Nothing much... proof reading the documents...and researching etc... but for the pst two days there is hardly any work that is coming my way. So much so...I am noticing that most of the new lawyers are working on a single case... and taking their own sweet time to make the applications etc.. a few of them have no work at all... I see them chatting the whole day...or orkutting or redaing the newspaper. And that is the reason I have not exactly been working for the past two days... no work has come my way.... all I do there is work of the steno...
I am not learning anything... the people are nice... but that is it.... I am not a workoholic...but I dont like to sit idle especially when I am supposed to be working. I know that I am not learning anything that is going to help me be a lawyer... except that even in corporate law firms... life is a bitch...and politics rule the roost...!!!!
Clearly put- The whole Intern thingy is strictly OK. Or maybe I was expecting more...!!!
