In the backdrop of Poverty and Inequality, Legal Aid is an effective way towards attainment of the ideals of ‘Social, Economic and Political’ Justice that are enshrined in our Constitution under the Directive Principles of State Policy. The Legal Aid Implementation Committee of the Government of India formed out of the constructive suggestions of the Bhagwati Committee on Jurisdicare of 1977 had envisaged the setting up of legal aid dispensation clinic in the various law schools.
The object is to spread awareness amongst ignorant masses about their legal rights and duties, and how to go about seeking the same and students of law get exposed to the various problems associated with the ‘real world’, thereby gaining practical knowledge on the subject. We seek to do this through public speaking, awareness camps, seminars, legal counseling, poster making and street plays.
The Legal Aid Clinic aims of bridging the gap between what law promises to offer and the actual realities 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 Legal Aid Clinic seeks to impart practical knowledge of law to students. The aim of starting the Clinic 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. Legal Aid Clinic will work 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 (e.g. theatre performances).
It shall provide the law students an occasion to learn by doing, use social spaces as a class room, sensitize them to the nature of law that can empower or oppress, facilitate access to justice to the deprived and marginalized, and create socially responsible citizens, advocate, judges, police officers and other State officials. Our aim is to provide free legal aid services to the various sections of the society (Section 12 Legal Services Authority Act, 1987), because we believe that justice should be available to all.
We have an excellent judicial system and everyone should be able to avail its benefits, but most people can't or won't! Many are not aware of their rights or the remedies available to them under law, and this number of people increases with decrease in the level of education managed by them, and it further goes up when the people who desperately need the services of our legal system, do not have the financial resources for it. Now that amounts to an enormous section of our society and we want to help them to the best of our abilities so that they can take advantage of our illustrious judicial system.
The legal aid clinic shall work like a single window facility for helping the disadvantaged people to solve their legal problems whenever needed. Besides legal advice, other services like preparing applications for job card under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee (MGNREG) Scheme, identity card for different government purposes, liaison with the Government offices and public authorities, helping the common people who come to the cell for solving their problems with the government officials, authorities and other institutions also shall be part of the legal services. It shall provide assistance by giving initial advice on the problem, assistance in drafting representations and notices, filling up of forms for the various benefits available under different government schemes, public distribution system and other social security schemes.
