Shival Ethape (1st year, IIT, Kharagpur)
Internship experience as a Virtutern at WORDICT-IP under renowned Sr. Patent Attorney Ashok ram Kumar. After all my plans of having a virtual law firm were ruined during the summer of 2020 dur to Covid-19 pandemic, I got to know from my senior about a one of its type virtual internship at WORDICT-IP. I contacted them and received a confirmation from them for a one month long internship. During the 4 weeks as a Virtutern Ashok ram Kumar Sir and his team used to give all ten interns really elaborate and insightful topics to research and present upon. This helped me with my research and presentation skills. Also, listening to the presentations of other interns was a learning experience as everyone prepared a different and unique topic. Ashok ram Sir's insight on each topic after every presentation were the best part of internship as per me as the knowledge coming from a person who has 30-35 years of experience in the field of IP is really valuable. I would like to thank Sir for being generous and for not holding while sharing his knowledge with us. Although I come from a college that specialises in the field of IP still I got to learn about many new topics of IP and also about the impact it had on our societies, economics and the politics of the world. I would urge all the law students out there to do one internship or work at WORDICT-IP at least once in their lives.
