Galvanized by the essence of Article 39-A of the Constitution of India, Asian Law School, inaugurated its Legal Aid Society on Thursday the 8th of March 2018, acknowledging its moral responsibility towards the weaker sections of the society, and its commitment towards fulfilling its ‘institutional social responsibility’.
Under the able guidance of Dr Tarun Yadav(HoD ALC) and faculty Mr Ashish Bhardwaj and Mr Ankur Madhiah ,the society has been setup to develop in the students an understanding of their ‘moral duties towards society’, which will lead to a sense of responsibility in nation building.
Dr. Lalitya Vir Srivastava, Director AEG, congratulated the efforts and said that it was his dream since the inception of Asian Law College at AEG to inaugurate and start working for the great cause and help the needy who are deprived of justice. Since 8th of March also happens to be International Women’s Day, he announced that every year women’s day at AEG would be celebrated as the foundation day of the ‘Legal Aid Society.’
As the objective of the Legal Aid Society is to extend legal awareness among students and people at large it aims to do this through public speaking, awareness camps, seminars,and legal counseling.
