Legal Awareness and Literacy Committee was established in the year 2011 with the purpose to educate people with basic legal knowledge. The dearth of awareness about one’s legal rights has often kept certain sections of society in the dark. The students, along with the faculty members have been working diligently to let everyone be a responsible citizen and find a medium to assert what’s rightfully theirs. They have conducted multiple webinars, workshops, and various informative camps at various locations. To date, they have been continuously aiming towards providing legal aid and awareness and helping those who need them.
The Legal Awareness and Literacy Committee’s blog is filled with a bunch of resources for those who share an interest in legal research articles, and also who seek a platform for their articles to reach a larger audience, intending to spill fresh content actively.
With the hope to provide value to the audience, they have come up with their blog to enrich the minds of the readers and give them an accessible resource of legitimate information.
- The objective of this Call for Blog is to encourage legal academicians to present their exceptional writing skills for the purpose of literary empowerment.
- Encouraging students to find ignored yet important topics which need to be addressed.
- Giving such students a platform to express themselves
