(31/7/2023) | Field Work Practice (PKL) is one of the programs that final semester students must take; this is what has been done by FH UNAIR students Batch 2020; students who take part in PKL are placed in quality institutions according to student interests, one of them is in Surabaya Children’s Crisis Center. UNAIR Faculty of Law students who participated in the program were Anggito Bagas Abimanyu, Anik Setyawati, Annida Fadilla Fikri, Arnetalia Ardhiya, Muhammad ‘Ilman Nur’ Arif.
At the Surabaya Children Crisis Center, the UNAIR Faculty of Law has much experience with children, focusing on criminal law cases. PKL participants have the experience of participating directly in trials of cases of children in conflict with the law, both children as perpetrators, victims, or witnesses. They also assist children as victims in providing information during investigations by the police. While carrying out street vendor activities at the Surabaya Children Crisis Center, UNAIR Faculty of Law students admitted they encountered no difficulties, considering the assignments were all hands-on in the field.
“An interesting experience while undergoing the program was being able to directly witness the ongoing process of child trials, bearing in mind that cases of child trials were closed; because we were interns at the Surabaya Children Crisis Center, we were allowed to see the trial,” said Anik when interviewed by FH NEWS.
“Hopefully, in the future, the Surabaya Children Crisis Center and the UNAIR Faculty of Law will continue to collaborate in terms of providing a place for students to gain additional knowledge and experience through the street vendors program so that students can apply the knowledge gained during lectures by direct practice in the field and also the knowledge gained. Later it can be implemented,” said Anik.
