About the Opportunity

About the Organizers

‘Awaaz -The Blog’ is an initiative of the Legal Aid Society, Campus Law Centre, University of Delhi. The blog publishes articles to encourage diverse legal discourse on contemporary social, political, and legal issues and wishes to create a space where different ideas can come together and converse with each other. It also aims at giving the students an opportunity to explore the legal arena and shape discussions relating to paramount and critical issues pertaining to legal aid through a diligent selection process.

The Legal Aid Society, Campus Law Centre, University of Delhi aims to provide legal aid to fellow citizens who cannot afford professional legal services and also look forward to championing those public causes for which adequate support is still lacking. Society has always been a rock-steady pillar of support for those who require legal assistance in any field of law. The progress made by the society in this arena has been due to the strenuous efforts put in by the students, professors, and lawyers who are inspired by the motto of the National Legal Services Authority (NALSA)- ‘Access to Justice for all’.
