“I joined the Clinic hoping to gain more exposure, and learn various skills for which the clinic has not disappointed me. The CFHR’s Human Rights legal clinic has provided us an opportunity to have a holistic view of how the society makes a difference through research and education and how working in tandem takes it a long way. I would like to applaud the participants and coordinators of the Clinic for conducting this task with appreciable dexterity, visible harmony, organized direction, and timely assistance. I recognize being part of advancing our society positively through the Clinic. I am looking forward to participating again with the team in upcoming research.”

Sajal Khan (2020-21):

“I feel very gratified and glad to be associated as a research intern at CFHR. I cannot emphasise enough how obliged I am to the clinic for the learning opportunities it has provided me with. I will forever be grateful for my clinic experience as it has given me an advantage to polish myself in numerous skills and has enhanced my knowledge specifically in the field of human rights and its scope in Pakistan.”

Hassan Ali Askari (2020-21):

“Being part of the Human Rights Clinic this past year was a truly memorable experience for me. We were able to shed light on the most undeveloped news of human rights violations from across the country and work towards their possible solutions. I worked on the project dealing with the impact of Covid-19 on education in Pakistan. The project suggested possible ways in which the digital divide/gap could be bridged in Pakistan, drawing from leading judicial judgments and articles from across the world and probing into the socio economic policies of the Pakistani government.”

Minhal Saad (2018-2020):

My two-year experience at the Centre for Human Rights has served to be one of the most rewarding and enriching aspects of my law school career. I was able to get an insight into the practical aspects of the legal profession and its nuanced functioning. It provided a platform for me to develop my legal writing and research skills, and these have played an instrumental role in shaping my career as a member of the legal fraternity. The mentors at the clinic allowed me to explore new avenues especially with human rights law and its significance in our society. Most notably, we compiled and presented a report at Mahidol University, Bangkok on the economic impact of gender-based violence. The overall experience has allowed me to grow personally and professionally.

Aaqib Bashir (2018-2019):

I had a very positive experience while interning at CFHR’s Human Rights Clinic and working there helped me grow both personally and professionally. One of the biggest benefits of working at the clinic was that it actively worked on improving my legal research and writing skills. There is a lack of focus on these skills in law schools, and the training I received at CFHR gave me an edge early on in my own career. The academic trip to Thailand was great in terms of exposure and apart from being informative, the whole experience was very positive and made me feel more confident in my own abilities. On a more personal level, discussions at the clinic further sensitised me to the issues faced by women in our society and encouraged me to educate myself more on the issue.
