Legal Aid Centre

The Constitution of India enunciates the connotation of broadly accessible legal aid. Under Article 39A of the Constitution of India Part IV [the Directive Principles of State Policy] inserted by the Constitution (42nd Amendment) Act 1976, the State is committed to securing ‘the operation of the legal system promotes justice on a basis of equality’ and providing free legal aid to ensure that opportunities for securing justice are not denied to any citizen by reason of economic or other difficulties. The object of this provision is to promote equality so that no citizen is denied the right to seek justice because of economic incapacity to bear the cost of legal aid. The Legal Aid Centre of SLS-NOIDA is operational since 2015, and has envisaged multifarious legal service schemes with respect to paralegals; legal clinics; programmes for unorganised workers and marginalised communities. We have dedicated legal aid cell office on the ground floor of the Law School with sufficient seating arrangements and 3 work stations. It can house 4 office bearers and 8 visitors at a time.
