“We educated, privileged lawyers have a professional and moral duty to represent the underrepresented in our society, to ensure that justice exists for all, both legal and economic justice.”
- Sonia Sotomayo, Associate U.S. Supreme Court Justice
The Constitution of India by virtue of Article 39 A directs the State to provide free legal aid to the poor and weaker sections of the society, to promote justice on the basis of equal opportunity. Further, Article 14 and 22 (2) of the Constitution ensures equality before law. Also, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 16 underscores the obligation of States “to ensure equal access to justice for all”. Keeping in line with these obligations and with a view to encourage pro bono legal services, the Department of Justice (DoJ) intends to create a database of lawyers willing to provide their services to litigants identified under Section 12 of The Legal Services Authority Act of 1987.
Our Firm offers legal assistance and pro-bono services to all the weaker sections of the society in any branch of law. It makes continuous efforts to reach out and serve the society.
