Main tasks

At PUCL you are mostly required to do at least 3 empirical studies involving field work.

Mine was visiting the Police Thanas in East Jaipur, visiting old age homes, and visiting night shelters. The teams who do the field work are required to submit individual reports with full details.

You get to learn a lot. And besides the field work PUCL makes the interns visit the Sessions court, High Court, Consumer Courts, Labor Courts, and other sub- ordinate courts.

They also call eminent personalities to teach the interns about various new laws.

They make you understand the whole process that how a work is done there and then they will make you learn and grasp things easily and you shall get to meet a lot of people who have already excelled in their field coming in PUCL and I got to witness how they discuss and teach.
