Synched with the mission of NALSA, the Bar Council of India Rules, 2008 imposes a responsibility on every Law School in India to establish and run a Legal Aid Clinic. In order to achieve the objective of Clinical Legal Education to impart lawyering skills amongst students and to attain social justice, there is a need that the Law Schools in India are oriented, trained and empowered to successfully run Legal Aid Clinics which is the best way to bridge the gap between the law in books and the law in practice.
