Legal Aid Clinic

A Legal clinic or Law Clinic is a nonprofit law practice serving the public interest. Legal clinics originated as a method of practical teaching of law school students, but today they encompass also free legal aid with no academic links. In the academic context, legal aid clinics provide hands-on experience to law students and services to various (typically indigent) clients. Academic clinics are usually directed by clinical professors. Dr. Raj Kumar Yadav, Assistant Professor is the Coordinator in charge of our Legal Aid Clinic.

Students typically provide assistance with research, drafting legal arguments, and meetings with clients. In many cases, on of the clinic's professors will show up for oral argument before the Court. However, many jurisdictions have "student practice" rules that allow law-clinic students to appear and argue in court. Many legal clinics offer pro bono work in one or more particular areas, providing free legal services to clients.

Why should (a student) be forced to learn the law exclusively in the laborious and difficult manner? Must he be denied the privilege, which the students of medicine, chemistry and the other science enjoy, of learning at the outset of his study from treatises what other original investigators have discovered? Like the student of the different sciences, the law student must learn how to make original investigations for himself, and diagnose, so to speak, the principles of law from the cases in actual litigation. But no reason can be given why he must learn the whole science of the law by his own investigations in the undigested mass of raw material in the shape of adjudicated cases. No medical school can pretend to give a complete course of instruction at the present day, without introducing into its curriculum a comprehensive course of clinics. Nor does the professor of physics or chemistry teach these sciences exclusively by the use of the text books and pictorial representations of the various experiment as was once the practice. But the instructors of these science have not discarded the treatise; the have only supplemented the use of the treatise with the resort to the laboratory and operating room.
