CLINICAL PROGRAMMES

The aim of Clinical Programmes is to bridge the gap between what law promises to offer and the actual reality of law. It follows the model of good governance through citizen participation, which believes that good governance will come about only when citizens at all levels of democracy effectively participate. Since 2009, the members of the society have actively participated and organized various events to promote awareness and have engaged effectively with rural communities.

The Clinical Legal Aid Society has been a part of JGLS since its inception in 2009. The society exists with the sole aim of bridging the gap between what law promises to offer and the actual reality of law. It follows the model of good governance through citizen participation, which believes that good governance will come about only when citizens at all levels of our democracy effectively participate. The clinical legal education seeks to impart practical knowledge of law to students. The aim of starting the society was not only to bring future lawyers face to face with the harsh realities of law, but also by giving ourselves the opportunity to use and implement the law even before entering the professional world. Since 2009, the members of the society have actively participated/organized various awareness creating events and engaged effectively with the rural communities. This is done by building a rapport with the communities, by understanding their concerns, after which they are connected to the district authorities, through the processes of law. This process engages communities on a weekly basis, organizing conferences, conclaves, interventions within our surroundings and unique creative methods (Eg: theatre performances).
