Mr. Abhijit Paul

Khaitan & Co.,
Kolkata Office

Dear Mr. Paul,

I am a third-year law student at ABC Law School. I am writing to express my interest in the position of summer intern with Khaitan & Co., Kolkata office.

I have a strong background and interest in criminal law. I have also prepared numerous briefs, motions, and memos.  The previous summer and school year, I interned under Mr. Ram Kumar at Karnataka High Court.  My duties in this position included interviewing clients, locating and interviewing potential witnesses, reviewing case files and transcripts, and preparing a motion for a new trial, a motion to withdraw a guilty plea, and a reply brief.

In addition, during my first semester of law school I earned the highest grade in my Introduction to Criminal Law class.  I also successfully competed for a place as a competitor on ABC Law School’s Moot Court Board by writing an appellate brief and taking part in oral arguments.  Last year I competed in the National Criminal Procedure Moot Court Competition.  In addition to my law school experiences, I also hold a diploma in Criminology from the University of Texas.

My interest in criminal law and the skills I have gained from these experiences make me a well-qualified candidate for the position of summer intern at your Kolkata office.  I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to discuss my qualifications further.  Thank you for your consideration.
