chambers of Mr. Deepak Diwan, Advocate, Supreme Court, Delhi High Court and Tis Hazari District Court.

Internship Duration
24 December 2016- 24 January 2017

Internship Details
During this period the intern regularly attended trial proceedings at the Tiz Hazari District Court and other trial courts in Delhi. She also witnessed arbitration proceedings at The Indian Council for Arbitration. She researched on various aspects of procedural and substantial law namely- The Code of Civil Procedure 1908, The Limitations Act, 1963, Interest Act 1968, The Arbitration Act of 1940 &1996, The Constitution of India 1950.

The internship was very relevant for a first year law student as it provided more exposure to the realities of law than any NGO could. The internship enabled the intern to learn legal drafting and legal research, very important skills for a law student to possess. It also helps the students to acquaint themselves with the procedure of how a plaint is filed and how a trial takes place. It was overall an amazing experience. Although the actual way in which the District Courts function is a little disillusioning, after the grandiose expectations students develop in the comfort of the elitist jargon that law school introduces them to, I feel that this reality check is very important for a student to become a successful lawyer. An internship at the district court is a must have in the repertoire of work experience to ensure holistic growth. The weightage it has in the curriculum vitae doesn’t hurt either!

When asked, the undisputed champion of cross-examination, Mr. Ram Jethmalanidescribed the art of cross-examination as the most effective weapon for the discovery of truth, provided the objective is not to confound a truthful witness but to extract truth from an unwilling witness.
The search for truth is the ultimate and idealistic end of all litigated matter in a court trial, and that truth is obtained due to the process of cross examination in the conduct of litigation.

Mr. Jethmalani understands that in India where large number of complaints and cases are filed in civil and criminal courts every day, delay in justice is common due to the rapidly growing pendency of cases in courts. Examination of witnesses plays an important …

Dishonour of Cheque: Punishment under NI Act

INTRODUCTION:Negotiable Instrument literally means any promissory note, bill of exchange or cheque, and in easier terms, it means a piece of paper which will hold the promisee to claim some amount of money out of the paper. Section 6 of the Negotiable Instruments Act defines the word cheque. It further is classified as Bearer Cheque, Crossed Cheque, Self Cheque, Post-dated cheque, Banker’s cheque and traveller’s cheque. In general sense, cheques are the easiest way to transact in the present times. One may easily transfer money through cheques over long distances on a daily basis.
