We need your help


Legal education today does not come cheap! The cost of getting a law degree at the leading National Law Universities (including tuition fees and living expenses) is around INR 5,00,000 (5 lakhs) per annum. This is the biggest barrier to entry for the underprivileged. Help them access these hallowed halls of education, through the kindness of your contribution.
