BE­YOND THE COURT­ROOM

India Today - - LEGAL -

The Fac­ulty of Law con­trib­utes to the Na­tional Le­gal Ser­vices Au­thor­ity’s Para-Le­gal Vol­un­teers Scheme by re­cruit­ing stu­dents for it. The stu­dents are first trained by ex­perts from var­i­ous fields of law, such as family, labour, con­sumer pro­tec­tion, crim­i­nal pro­ce­dure, mo­tor ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dents and other leg­is­la­tions. The stu­dents then help cre­ate le­gal aware­ness and pro­vide le­gal aid to peo­ple from ev­ery strata of so­ci­ety through ini­tia­tives such traf­fic aware­ness cam­paigns, door-to-door cam­paigns and street plays. The para­le­gal vol­un­teers’ work for the Delhi State Le­gal Ser­vices Au­thor­ity in con­nec­tion with a case re­gard­ing man­ual scav­eng­ing filed by an NGO was highly ap­pre­ci­ated by the Delhi High Court.
