  1. Marginalised and disadvantaged groups often lack the legal knowledge, understanding, or financial means to access basic law. They are also unaware of their own rights. The result is a sense of existing injustice within societies in which a growing rift divides those with financial and legal means from those without these means. Student members of the Legal Aid Society actively organise ‘Sabhas’ and ‘Visits’ in local communities and villages and arrange interactive sessions to discuss the legal issues and entitlement rights to help them exercise their rights.

  2. Students are trained on two aspects- that of disseminating social justice and reaching for access to justice. This imbibes in them the legal skills, knowledge, and hands-on practical training to prepare them for the legal sector's diverse opportunities.

  3. Organising seminars and workshops to spread awareness on various social issues.

  4. Foster broader and deeper connections and bridging between the global universe of legal practitioners and the academy.
