Legal Aid Centre

The Legal Aid Centre at Symbiosis Law School, NOIDA is established with ‘Aim & Objective’ to ‘Serve legal aid, through human resource, knowledge resource, & infrastructural resource, to those who need it the most, purely on pro-bono basis’. It’s a blend of legal duty (as laid down under Rule 31 of Bar Council of India’s Rules of Legal Education, and Rule 11 of Schedule III of the said ‘rules’) of the Institute with mission of the Symbiosis International University.

The mission statement of the Symbiosis International University says that it is committed towards ‘fostering spirit of national development’, ‘instilling sensitivity amongst the youth towards the community’, ‘contributing towards knowledge generation and dissemination’, and ‘promoting ethical and value based learning’. The establishment of the Legal Aid Centre at Symbiosis Law School - Noida acknowledges that it is committed towards fulfilling its ‘institutional social responsibility’.

The above laid ‘objective’ will be achieved when those, who have knowledge, including persons from the legal profession, alumni of the Symbiosis International University, and the students, will come forward to share their knowledge, experience, and expertise with those who are in need of legal aid & support.

Participation of members of the Legal Aid Centre in various activities will make them more sensitive towards various legal issues that are being faced by the society people. It will enhance their understanding of their ‘moral duties towards the society’, which will lead to ‘sense of responsibility in nation building’.

With these ‘Aims & Objectives’, the Legal Aid Centre of Symbiosis Law School, NOIDA will be active in three directions:
