IDIA Football League is back


IDIA Football League (IFL) is back!!

This year marks the fifth-year anniversary of this unique event.

An event that promotes diversity in legal education.  IFL is IDIA’s annual fundraising football tournament in Mumbai that brings together legal professionals to compete on the football field. Funds raised from the league are used for promoting legal education of students from underprivileged backgrounds. It is now a popular league among legal professionals that is conceptualized based on sport’s ability to nurture diversity in the society.
