Legal Aid Clinic :

As per the mandate of the Rules of Legal Education 2008, School of Law has established a Legal Aid Clinic. Legal Aid Clinic is recognized by the Legal Aid Services Authority, Bhopal. The purpose behind having this Clinic is to familiarize law students with the problems faced by those people who are either uninformed or ignorant about their rights. To give our students real life exposure we organize Legal Aid camps wherein our students take the problems of the downtrodden and provide them Legal Aid with the help of District Legal Aid Services. We not only aim at relieving the aggrieved instead, we come out to bring social and legal awareness to curb down the burning issues from grass-root level. Apart from organizing legal awareness camp the clinic also aims at uplifting the children of slums and organizes Personality Development sessions and sports activities for them.

‘Liturgy’ is a wing of the legal aid clinic which works in the direction of instilling social values in the students. The roadmap of Liturgy is laid in way which inspires social responsibility and social sensitivity among the students. Various social visits to orphanages, old age homes, museum schools, etc. are planned to expose the students to the different dimensions of the society.
