Parichay, a collaborative legal aid clinic set up by law schools in India, is inviting applications for online volunteering opportunity, for students with interest and experience in designing and arts.
About the Organizer
Parichay is a collaborative legal aid clinic set up by law schools in India, to assist persons excluded from the National Register of Citizens in Assam. Persons excluded from the NRC in Assam have the right to file appeals before the Foreigners Tribunals against their exclusion. Parichay works with lawyers and paralegals to assist them through the appeals process. We also engage in documentation and research to generate greater understanding of citizenship laws in India.
Parichay’s blog will solicit and publish scholarly writing, interviews, essays, and short explainers on issues relating to citizenship in India and the Global South. A newsletter will be sent with periodic updates on the latest news on citizenship and allied issues from around the globe.
