What we do

Sensitisations

IDIA runs on the backbone of its 600+ student volunteers, drawn from leading law universities across India. These student volunteers travel across the length and breadth of India (from the Sunderbans in West Bengal to Baramulla in Jammu & Kashmir) to identify and sensitise underprivileged students to the power of the law, and the diverse range of career options that await them.

Training

Interested students are screened through a basic aptitude test (carefully designed to test logical reasoning and critical thinking abilities). They are then put through a rigorous training schedule for up to 2 years, including classroom coaching from India’s leading law entrance (Common Law Admission Test or CLAT) coaching centres and trainers.

Scholarships

Once an IDIA trainee is admitted into a law school, IDIA arranges for scholarships to support their education.

Creating CHAMPS

IDIA’s job does not end with merely facilitating law school admissions for underprivileged children. Rather, the ultimate goal is to produce leading lawyers and community advocates who are “creative, holistic, altruistic and maverick problem solvers” (CHAMPS). To this end, IDIA has conceptualised a rigorous training and mentorship programme to help each IDIA Scholar to blossom to their fullest potential.
