Vision of the TISS has been to be an institution of excellence in higher education that continually responds to changing social realities through the development and application of knowledge, towards creating a people-centred, ecologically sustainable and just society that promotes and protects dignity, equality, social justice and human rights for all.

In pursuance of the TISS mission towards creating a people-centred and just society that promotes equality, justice and human rights for all, the School of Law, Rights and Constitutional Governance (SLRCG) was set up at the TISS Mumbai Campus in June 2012. Law, legislative reform and human rights have a great role in the development and empowerment of societies, communities and individuals. The main objective of the SLRCG is to advance socially relevant legal education and promote the education of human rights through its centres for:

  • Law and Society
  • Police Studies and Public Security
  • Statelessness and Refugee Studies

The SLRCG organised a rural visit to Karjat for its students and held interaction with civil society organisations and the community on issues of farm labourers, the unorganised brick kiln workers, their living conditions and legal issues for an experiential learning of students towards access to justice for a rural community and their empowerment.

The SLRCG initiated steps towards developing entrepreneurship and professionalism among the students by organising workshops as an innovative form of learning. The workshops were on topics such as Defending Capital Punishment Cases, Emotional Intelligence of Lawyers, Corporate Social Responsibility, Alternate Dispute Resolution, and Mediation Strategies. The SLRCG revised its field work manual as Clinical Legal Education & Experiential Learning and identified seven eminent organisations strongly committed to Access to Justice for the marginalised.
