Duration of internship and timings

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

My first impression of the commission was very informative.

We were guided meticulously about are jobs.

The ambiance was great.

On the first day, we were asked to mark our attendance and then each and every intern introduced themselves.

It was really great to know students from different law schools.

The infrastructure was also good and the best part was that the room was air conditioned.

Main tasks

At first, we all were divided into different groups with each group consisting of 4-5 members.

Our main tasks were to read the complaints received by the commission.

After a thorough reading, we had to analyse whether the complaint was within our jurisdiction and according to that we had to put a form on the complaint.

Green form if the complaint was within our jurisdiction, pink form if the complaint is not in our jurisdiction and white form if the complaint is being received for the second time.

Apart from that, we had really informative debates, discussions on the current issues, case laws etc.

Work environment and people

Work environment was wonderful.

All the interns were very dedicated and hardworking.

The discussions were fun as well as knowledgeable.

The debates on the current events made us abreast about all the events happening around the world.

The staff was very affable and amiable and they helped us in a great way.

Best things

The best thing was that we were made to read the actual complaints by people all over Punjab.

It gave us a first hand experience of the condition of human rights in Punjab.

The fact that we were submitting those complaints and helping people in need was the best thing.

It made me feel content and happy.

Biggest Lessons

The biggest lesson was the knowledge of human rights.

It increased our awareness about human rights as a separate branch of law.

Also, it taught us their importance.

The commission is a great platform for those people whose human rights are being violated.

Any Other Thing

This internship is a great learning experience and a student should totally go for it.
