Keywords:Dispute Resolution, Justice, Legal Academia, Legal Aid Clinics
Justice delivery in a society depends on its legal framework and the institutional framework through which such justice is delivered. Law Schools through which legal education is delivered play a crucial role in the justice delivery system in a country. In India, different formats of legal educational institutions are found, all of which have their own conception of ‘justice’ and have adopted their own mode of delivering legal education in order to cater to the need of the ‘justice’ delivery system of the country. Two important limps of legal education are the legal academia and the Legal aid clinics. Restriction on engaging these resources for dispute resolution is not only a waste of intellectual resources but also a burden on society. The current paper focuses on different ways to engage the above limps as a catalyst to expedite justice delivery.
