During their tenure, based in Islamabad with visits to other cities, the interns engaged in researching Public Interest Litigation, dissecting judicial ambits under Article 184 of the Pakistani Constitution, and participating in legal procedures among other activities. Their experience expanded beyond the capital, reaching district courts in Rawalpindi and the Lahore High Court, granting them a nuanced understanding of the juxtaposition between Pakistani and American legal systems.

The clerkship initiative originated from a seminar at Harvard which featured dialogues between Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah from Pakistan and Justice Stephen Breyer from the United States. This seminar incited the interest of Ahmad and Awan in serving as summer clerks at the Supreme Court of Pakistan, furthering their understanding of their legal and cultural lineage.
