The Law and Governance Clinics at Azim Premji University, Bangalore hosted their inaugural 1-day Clinic Exhibition entitled ‘Justice: The Letter and The Spirit’ on Sunday, 10th May, 2015 at Vismaya Gallery, Rangoli – Metro Art Center Boulevard, Mahatma Gandhi Road, Bengaluru.
This exhibition is a journey through four development clinics which is a novel initiative of the students of the University. The exhibition featured work carried out between October 2014 and May 2015 by the Criminal Justice Clinic, the Democratic Institutions and Processes Clinic, the Environment Protection Clinic, and the Human Rights Clinic at Azim Premji University. These student projects included strengthening the juvenile justice system in Karnataka securing rights of forest-dwelling communities in Gudalur, Tamil Nadu developing data-driven election campaign in Mandya, Karnataka; and realizing the rights of street vendors in Karnataka and elsewhere. The exhibition featured posters, comic strips, infographics, documentary films and one-on-one interaction with the educators and students on their experiential learning.
Clinical education, a pedagogy tool used to facilitate and train students in engaging with projects of social transformation, was a concept that many visitors were curious and fascinated about. The exhibition which was attended by approximately 700 people was a great success, attracting a wide range of individuals and organizations. From individuals working for NGOs and Think Tanks to the layman strolling down M.G Road, the event was well received and for many, a first encounter with these kind of student projects. The students too found it to be a great learning experience, sharing their learning with a non-academic audience. The exhibition was widely covered in the print and electronic media.
