About Us

JUSTICE FOR ALL

India is a modern country and world's largest democracy with a population of over 1.21 billion people. Since independence in 1947, the country has already passed through 14 general elections on the basis of adult franchise and secret ballot. The Constitution of our country guarantees absolute equality to all its citizens regardless of caste, creed, community and religion. The Supreme Court has ensured strict enforcement of every constitutional safeguard relating to the freedom of all individuals. The country has made a remarkable progress in various respects as well, and has accepted the concept of 'welfare state'. Hence it has to work for the welfare of the general public. It is also the function of the State to establish a just social order by enacting just laws and by providing equal opportunity to all to grow in the society.

Legal Right - A Right Based In Law

An abstract idea of that which is due to a person or governmental body by law or tradition or nature; "they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights"; "Certain rights can never be granted to the government but must be kept in the hands of the people"- Eleanor Roosevelt; "a right is not something that somebody gives you; it is something that nobody can take away"

As students are considered the future leaders so they would be the best medium to communicate between those in need and the Students Legal Rights Club (in short SLRC). They would be helpful in dissemination of information about legal aid programmes, creating legal awareness among the masses, and to make use of their potential and spirit for the cause of disadvantaged and marginalized sections of the society while encouraging them to empathize and identify the problems of the students and make justice accessible to all. The present Scheme of " Students Legal Rights Club" is formed with an idea to spread knowledge of the legal rights and duties and to give legal suggestions to the poor and needy for their various problems and for providing Legal Literacy and Legal Services Programmes without causing any detriment to their study curriculum.
