Call for Blogs: RGNUL’s Legal Advancement and Research Editorial [LARE]: Rolling Submissions
About Legal Advancement and Research Editorial
The RGNUL: Legal Advancement and Research Editorial (LARE) has been established in 2020 and is maintained by RGNUL Legal Aid Clinic. In 2011, the Legal Aid Clinic had been set up under the aegis of the District Legal Services Authority (DLSA), Patiala. The Clinic has striven to give effect to the policy and directions of the National legal Services Authority and to provide free legal aid to the poor, needy persons and the members of the weaker sections of the society.
Through LARE, the RGNUL Legal Aid Clinic is trying to achieve its vision of filling the vacuum that has been created between the Law and the society. This initiative taken by Clinic is solely to promote academic and legal research and thus, through this editorial, the Clinic envisages the substantive potential to have a constructive discourse regarding the solution of on-going societal problems in order to find practical solutions.
