HSL, Legal aid Clinic
The Legal aid Clinic has been a part of Harlal School of Law since its inception in 2004. The aim of the legal aid clinic is to provide free access to justice to the needy, the unprivileged and marginalised people of the society. The clinic proved to be one of the best methods of learning experience by transmitting the theoretical knowledge from classroom to harsh realities of the society. The clinic is a dynamic tool of learning, through which the students learn the techniques of interviewing, interaction, eliciting the relevant information from the client and to suggest possible remedies and the alternatives. The clinic also enables the students to learn drafting notices, complaints and petitions, and in turn it helps the students to be socially responsible and committed.
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.
