How did you Apply?
As I am from Tamil Nadu, I searched Internships apart from regular court internships in Tamil Nadu. Some of my seniors suggested me to do an internship in the State Human Rights Commission (hereinafter SHRC), Tamil Nadu. Interns can opt for either 15 working days or 30 working days internship in SHRC, Tamil Nadu.
I submitted my handwritten Application along with the NOC from College, in the SHRC legal division department, 20 days prior to my date of the internship. After approval of my Application, they called me to inform my selection in internship and instructed me the basic information about the internship such as timing etc.
First Day Formalities and Infrastructure
On 1st day of Internship, all interns gathered in a Courtroom where one of the staffs in Legal Division delivered a small lecture on the Human Rights, working of SHRC and NHRC and its rules and regulations etc. The lecture was followed by the introduction of interns.
The interns were from Legal and its allied courses. The Interns were provided with the tasks that are to be done within their period of internship. The building has 3 courtrooms, many administrative rooms with the rooms for other divisions. The ambience of the office encourages us to work and to enhance our knowledge in these fields.
The working timing for interns is from 10 am to 4.30 pm. The courtrooms in SHRC work for 3 days in a week. Interns observe courtroom trails for those days.
They work on the particular task that has already provided to them such as filling forms, entering entries in desktops and on registers, segregating petitions, dealing High Court files of SHRC in other days. They attend Conferences or Seminar, which are conducted by SHRC, Tamil Nadu.
This internship taught me about the working of SHRC, Human Rights in real-world and the responsibility of Government Officers with respect to Human Rights.
