LEGAL AID CLINIC

“Justice may be blind, but she has very sophisticated listening devices.”--Edgar Argo

Lady Justice has always been lampooned for being blind to the truth, but how often do people know the way to carry it to her?

The constitution of India under Article 39A, provides for free legal assistance to all its citizens. Upholding similar principles, the National Legal Services Authority (NALSA), the parent body of State Legal Services Authority (SLSA) and the District Legal Services Authority (DLSA) was established. They believe that no citizen shall be denied the opportunity of securing justice on any ground including socio-economic reasons.

LEGAL AID COMMITTEE (LAC), TNNLS

Legal aid cells at law schools help in inculcating a sense of social responsibility amongst the students. It is a crucial part of learning done at law school. LAC, TNNLS, a student run body was established in November, 2014 with an objective of extending legal help to the needy and imparting legal awareness.

OUR ACTIVITIES

Apart from running a legal aid clinic that is active every Wednesday, 3:00pm to 5:00pm with the able assistance of the DLSA, Trichy, we also conduct regular field visits to nearby villages and organise free legal aid camps.

OUR ACHIEVEMENTS
