Recognizing the unfortunate reality that talent and aptitude do not by their own ensure that the students are able to pursue legal education in India, our beloved late Mr. Shamnad Basheer spearheaded the IDIA movement in 2011. IDIA is a Non-Governmental Organization striving to make legal education accessible to all, regardless of geographical and/or economic constraints. We aim to bring about class, caste and gender inclusivity in law schools. Our mission is to find the marginalized communities and then groom them to become exceptional lawyers and community leaders. In this way, we hope to break the growing elitism in top law schools and in the legal profession, and build a more inclusive India, where we truly empower the underprivileged by creating capacity from within.
In these difficult times of the coronavirus pandemic, wherein most adults finding their incomes dwindling, we not only extend our support to the IDIA scholars (who are more often than not first generation learners) in terms of their legal education, but are also striving continuously to aid the very sustenance of the scholars by pitching some funds towards their rent, groceries and other such needs, above and beyond preparation for exams and such purely educational expenses.
