Open Day activity at Al-Azhar University in the framework of Internship Program for University Law Students


The Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law Secretariat, in partnership with the Faculty of Law at Al-Azhar University, conducted an open day for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) on 05 February 2016. During this activity, seven Human Rights Organizations, in addition to 300 students, were brought together, with the aim to present the work and thematic focus of each of the participating CSOs to law students at Al-Azhar and to open the floor for interaction between CSOs and students, in order to enable the students to subscribe to the internship program.

The Internship Program targets Palestinian law students in order to bring to their attention the work of human rights CSOs, and to build their capacities in both the thematic areas addressed and strategies employed by human rights CSOs.

Al-Azhar University had joined the program this year, while the internship program enters its second round; the first round was conducted last academic year, and was subjected of assessment with the participation of students and CSOs involved. The second round has been designed taking into account the findings and recommendations of the said assessment.

To apply, law students from Al-Azhar University (third year level) can download the program description package, which includes the application form, by following this link Program_Description_Package.pdf
