About Legal Aid Watch
Legal Aid Watch is an initiative driven by students of Legal Services Clinic, National Law School of India University Bangalore with the support of Human Rights Law Network. Legal Aid Watch aims being a catalyst for the generation of data relating to legal aid in India.
Currently, there is little scholarship, and possibly lesser empirical data, about the quality and accessibility of legal aid in India. Legal Aid Watch is an attempt to fill this void through encouraging students and researchers to collect and create this data across the country.
Legal Aid Watch is being run in the form of a student-edited blog, that carries opinion pieces, interviews, audits of various stakeholders, research papers and any other form of scholarship on legal aid.
Over the course of the year, we hope to carry audit reports and interviews of every stakeholder in the process from Legal Services Authorities, judges, student-run clinics to prisons and police stations.
We shall do this by calling for submissions for Interviews and Audits of specific stakeholders each month.
