Are internships in Uganda becoming meaningless?

“I didn’t get to do the practical part even during internship. I thought maybe finally there was going to be practical, but sincerely our work as interns there was to sit and observe what would take place in a court room, without any participation. And maybe sending us around offices and arranging files. It looked like we were practicing secretarial work and not legal practice.”

Dorah Adoch Komakech, a beneficiary of CPAR Uganda “Mentoring Young Adults into Innovators against Poverty” programme.

Dorah shared her testimony in reaction to Prof. Christopher Garimoi Orach’s thesis that “it isn’t enough to give learners only theoretical knowledge.”
