Increasing Diversity by Increasing Access to Legal Education (IDIA) is a non-profit organisation working in India, and founded by Dr. Shamnad Basheer. It aims to identify and empower underprivileged and marginalised communities by providing them access to quality legal education.
It is a student run movement that trains students from marginalised and underprivileged communities and helps transform them into leading lawyers and community advocates. All proceeds from the competition will go directly in aiding the aforementioned cause.
