About the Legal Aid Clinic
The NLIU – Legal Aid Clinic (“LAC”), which is driven by the ethos of Article 39A of the Indian Constitution, has been established under the aegis of the National Legal Services Authority. It is a student-run initiative, which aims to provide free legal aid to the marginalized sections of the society. Our aim is to provide pro bono legal representation and advice to the weak and downtrodden sections of the society. Additionally, we also organize various legal literacy workshops and training programs to spread legal awareness and to further the cause of legal literacy. All this has been made possible by the constant support of our collaborators, viz.:
- Madhya Pradesh State Legal Services Authority,
- District State Legal Services Authority, Bhopal
- Indian National Bar Association,
- International Council of Jurists,
- Committee for Legal Aid to Poor,
- SCC Online,
- Red FM Bhopal, and
- Everyday India.
