Manikya Taneja, Geeta Institute of Law, BA LL.B 4th Year
This time for my summer internship I went to the Delhi State Legal Services Authority, the office of which is situated at the Patiala House Court Complex, New Delhi. There were field visit and research work to be completed with the team. We were informed about the working of the organization and group’s leaders were introduced to the groups in the session they told about the group topics for their presentation.
Some of the places for field visit were; Tihar Jail, Institute of Human Behavior and Allied Sciences (IHBAS), Observation Homes, Child Welfare Committee (CWC), Police Stations, Juvenile Board, Family Courts, Juvenile Homes etc. We went with CFAR team where we have a good interaction with the people and told them about their rights, legal services, etc and how to avail them. It was a great learning experience.
It gives you complete practical knowledge about the legal aid system and the functioning of Government Bodies.
