The Law Students’ Human Rights Movement begins their yearly ventures with the Induction Programme for the preliminary year students. At the occasion, the newcomers are briefed on the activities and events that awaited their enthusiastic participation. The official HRM file and several other valuable publications will also be presented to the newcomers.
We conduct Legal Aid Programmes for the benefit of the underprivileged people, who either lack the financial resources or do not have the required knowledge to safeguard their rights. This also gives the students a valuable opportunity to experience how law is applied inthe day to day life.
Most people are not aware of their rights, and are, more often than not, ignorant about their obligations to fellow members of their society. Therefore, workshops are organised focusing school children to enlighten them about their rights and obligations.p>
Parliament is one of the main pillars of our system of governance. It is not easy to fully grasp the importance of our legislature until one has seen how it functions. For this reason, we organise parliamentary visits for our students.
Prisons are one of the main institutions concerned with the administration of Justice in this country. Therefore it is essential to have a very good understanding of that institution. The students gain awareness on the prisoners’ lifestyles and how these unfortunate people can be reformed and rehabilitated to be productive members of our society.
The Human Rights Day is the highlight of our calendar. It is commemorated with lectures, cultural events and exhibitions dealing with human rights issues.
