The main goals of the internship program are to widen the perspectives of interns, to bring social change and to teach them to deal with realities of law to interpret the law to the masses. The internship program teaches interns to connect law with various social, economic and political issues, most importantly to implement the law as interpreted with the rights-based approach.
The reality of law is different from the textbooks, so applying the legal knowledge to social problems requires sensitivity and rights-based perspectives. Interaction with people at the ground level and visiting the problem areas can give interns a clearer idea of real issues. Internship programs like the one Human Rights and Law Defender (HRLD) are running will progressively take an important step in changing the social process. This program is connecting students of law, media, and social-work for the needs of society.
