The learning of law stretches much beyond the syllabi of the law as taught in the classroom. It is to cater to this need of the students to learn the subject in depth and in the broader sense, that the College has initiated the idea of Law Clubs. These Clubs provide a platform for the students interested in learning beyond the syllabi. The Clubs have been initiated to facilitate creativity, awareness, and interest in current issues in various legal fields. They are primarily managed by the students with the guidance of faculty members. 7 Law Clubs were initiated in the year 2005. They include the
- Constitutional Law Club
- Human Rights Law Club
- Criminal Law Club
- Consumer Law Club
- International Law Society
- Intellectual Property Law Club
- Labour Law Club
Each Law Club has two Faculty Coordinators and a Student Coordinator. The student’s membership for the Club is optional and restricted to 10. The Club activities help to sensitize students about current happenings, through Research, Debate, Discussion Sessions, Poster making, Quizzing and also through various competitions.
Members of Club devise their own activities do disseminate knowledge through various methods such as debate, panel discussions, notice board messages, contests, crossword puzzles, research projects, quizzes, guest lectures, and surveys. Clubs make learning voluntary and fun. As a result students enjoy organizing these activities and own the activities. These activities continue round the year.
The Clubs provide opportunities to its members to get together and share ideas, and develop their knowledge of law in practice. Every Club has an allotted space for the wallpaper on which the members, display information on various issues relating their area of operation every week.
The few highlights of the Club activities are, the consumer cases filed by the students of the Consumer Law Club; Right to Education Act Colloquium by Constitutional Law Club; Legal Spectrum Kaleidoscope – An Inter-Law Club Research Endeavour by the Human Rights Law Club, and Industrial Visit Colloquium by Labour Law Club.
The Law Clubs go a long way in narrowing the gap between the theoretical and practical aspects of Law.
