    Let Justice Prevail

    "Helping hands are better than Praying lips"

    Thinking smart, Future prospects and Wellbeing are the pillars on which the success of any department depends. MIT WPU's School of Law offers the 5-year integrated BBA-LL.B (Hons) program, articulated in such a way that it resolves to bring about a change in the youth who aspire to don the hat of a lawyer and make their mark in the legal guild.

    Legal Aid Clinic is a practical method of learning, which provides the students a first-hand experience of dealing with clients and giving them free legal advice. Legal clinics typically do pro bono work in a particular area, providing free legal services to clients.

    The concept of Legal Aid Clinic rests upon three pillars in the form of Articles of the Constitution of India-

  • ARTICLE 14, which provides for equality before law and equal protection of law

  • ARTICLE 39A which provides for a holistic approach in providing legal aid to the parties. It states that justice should not be denied to the litigating parties due to financial constraints and the State shall provide free legal aid to the weaker and poorer sections of the society.

  • ARTICLE 21 which deals with Right to life. Right to life does not imply mere animal existence; rather it is a right to live a life with human dignity (the right to speedy trail and free legal aid has been recognized as a part of Article 21)
