Name of the organization. City

Human Rights And Law Defenders (Sahyaog Trust) Pune, Prabhat Road, Lane – 15

Application procedure. Internship contact details.

You can approach directly to the office or call them on the contact number.

Duration in weeks. No. of days/week. Timings

The internship duration is 4 weeks. Timings: 10 AM to 5 PM

There are around 10 interns which work at a time. Both summer and winter internships are conducted.

Summer internship is held in the month of May-June and winter in the month of October-November.

Main tasks (in detail)

There are several guests who are being called to share their experience in the field of human rights and related law.

Many of them are renowned in the field of Human Rights.

The sessions held are really useful and a great help to people who wish to get started with law practice and procedure.

The interns are taken to several places as a part of internship programme. These places include:

Pune’s Central Jail called Yervada Jail, Juvenile Care Unit, Mental Care Unit, and also to other workshops that take place around that time.

The programme also includes a fun trip to Singhad fort (my favourite amongst the lot)

Work environment, people

The staff had good experience and all were very co-operative.

The staff consisted of 4 people altogether.

The programme was dealt mainly by Mrs. Rama Sarode who had real passion to help the underprivileged people.

Mr. Asim Sarode also took a few of our sessions which were a real treat.

He is a well established litigation lawyer in the Pune District Court and also practices in the Bombay High Court.

He motivated the young and talented aspiring lawyers like us.

Unlike other lawyers, he does not discourage taking up corporate law and lays stress on the very fact that one should follow his/her instincts.

 Best things?

The best things are the interactive sessions with various experts and the Singhad Fort trip.

Bad things?

Sadly, no stipend at all. But this should not be a dissuading factor, as lot of knowledge can be obtained.

What did you do to chill? Co-interns, colleagues

There were lot of interns along with us and used to hangout at places near Prabhat road and Kamla Nehru Park during an hour long lunch break.

Stipend/ month

No stipend. Infact, you have to pay Rupees 2000, since it is a private organisation but the kind of inputs and insights that one gets about human rights, it’s worth it.

Anything else you’d like to tell

The best place to start with in order to learn about Human Rights and related laws and a great platform for all budding lawyers to discuss on major issues concerning our society.

  1. Thanks for such an outspoken response. Human Rights law is a great field for new lawyers to work on and getting hands-on experience is one stepping to know the perspective of this international concept. We encourage interns to formulated their thoughts in right-based manase because knowing the law is comparatively easy thing than to have capacity to interpret it in right direction.
