Internship @ MP State Human Rights Commission
Application process: I directly went to the office of MPHRC with application for internship and my college id card.
They immediately registered me as an intern and they gave me a bare act of “Protection Of Human Rights Act 1993” and instructed me that Chairman of commission will discuss with you the provisions of this act.
Next day i went to chairman’s office for discussion, it was not formal discussion only about human rights but also about functioning of National Law School’s and format of CLAT. He was more interested in my CLAT rank than human rights.
