Long hours, no stipend and lots of work. Well clearly money does not always make the difference as the internship gets a rating of 8/10 on student website Lawctopus. One needs contacts in order to get the internship, says the reviewer. All research work for interns, before assigning a topic they do not care if you have studied it before or not.

"Benefiting from India's infrastructure boom, the firm acted on more project finance deals by value than any other firm globally in 2009. In addition to its top level finance work, the firm also has full corporate practice known for its quality. The firm is Delhi-based and the absence of top partners in Mumbai means its profile suffers to some degree. Like many of the top firms, clients say they need the managing partner, Rajiv Luthra, on complex matters."<ref>http://rsg-india.com/indian-law-firms/profiles/luthra-luthra RSG India profile 2010</ref>
