CLAP adopts a 3-fold approach for securing Human Right. The 3-fold approach revolves round Social Justice, Legal Justice and Natural Justice, which are of paramount consideration for CLAP while pursuing its endeavours. This 3-fold approach is accomplished in the following ways:
1. Social Justice - by creation of public awareness and education through legal literacy, training and education programmes to enable community to take advantage of law at the grassroots; by advocating for giving expression to the provisions of various Public Interest Laws having positive bearing on the society and bridging the gap between law and people.
2· Legal Justice - by evidence based Legal Research, Advocacy and Lobby for enactment of Public Interest Laws and also for Reform in the existing anti-human right and defective legislation.
3· Natural Justice - by giving opportunity to victims of injustice and human right violation to represent in the appropriate Justice Delivery System for establishment of rights and entitlements through legal aid. CLAP also catalyzes the response of Human Right Institutions and Mechanism for defence of victims of H.R. Violation.
Shyam Sundar Das, the Founder and moving spirit of CLAP was an eminent Sarvodaya Leader who dedicated his entire life for public work based on Truth, Non-Violence and People’s Participaton.
