IDIA Charitable Trust (IDIA or Increasing Diversity by Increasing Access to Legal Education) is a pan-India movement founded by Late Prof. (Dr.) Shamnad Basheer to train underprivileged students and help transform them into leading lawyers and community advocates. IDIA is premised on the notion that access to premier legal education empowers marginalized communities and helps them help themselves. IDIA selects and trains students from underprivileged backgrounds (IDIA Trainees) to crack top law entrance examinations in India. Once they are admitted to top law colleges, it provides a scholarship to these students (IDIA Scholars) that comprises financial support, training, and mentorship among other things.
IDIA Punjab Chapter is organizing a Quiz Competition to contribute to the training of underprivileged children and taking them a step closer to manifesting their dream of pursuing a legal education.
To encourage young creative minds of the country to come forward and participate in the competition to add to their knowledge and views on the broad spectrum of contemporary legal developments in the world and in India.
To use proceeds for promoting diversity, inclusivity, and accessibility in legal education such as towards conducting sensitizations and training underprivileged students for law entrance examinations.
The competition will be open to all students pursuing any undergraduate/postgraduate degree. The event is not restricted only to law students.
