RSIL internship programme for students, young professionals concludes

Islamabad

The Research Society of International Law (RSIL) held its annual weeklong internship programme for students and young professionals, says a press release.  

Titled the International Law Certification Course (ILCC), the programme was held from July 17-21, 2017. The course consisted of different lectures and case studies designed to deepen
the participants’ understanding of both the basic framework of international law
and those fields in which Pakistan places a particular interest.

This year’s programme was attended by a total of 31 participants, including students and professional lawyers, who enrolled into the program from cities all across Pakistan. The ILCC this year focused on training participants on the legal aspects of the major contemporary challenges facing Pakistan.

Participants were introduced to the legal underpinnings of longstanding disputes between India and Pakistan such as Kashmir, Siachen and the Indus Water Treaty as well as contemporary challenges involving cross-border terrorism, mutual legal assistance and the Kulbhushan Jadhav case at the ICJ. 

President RSIL, Ahmer Bilal Soofi, also took active part in the ILCC and delivered an enlightening and inspirational talk on the need for developing legal scholarship in Pakistan. The talk was very well received and reinforced the participant’s vigor and interest in the legal profession. 

On the final day, a debate competition was held on various topics including the Jadhav case at the ICJ, military courts and the future of the Indus Water Treaty. 

The course concluded with a ceremony where all participants were handed out certificates of participation. Special prizes were awarded to the Best Speaker and Best Team in the debate competition. Executive Director RSIL, Jamal Aziz, expressed his appreciation to all the participants and encouraged them to undertake focused legal research on the various challenges facing Pakistan with a view to finding solutions.
