Legal News & Views

Legal News & Views, holding the distinction of being India’s oldest monthly legal magazine, has completed 22 years of its publication this year. The publication of the magazine preceded India’s formal attempt to institutionalise programmes for legal aid. Thus, its publication and other related activities in the Institute have a pioneering position. The primary objective of the magazine is to inform the common populace, in easy and simple language, about its legal rights. The contents of the magazine are divided into different categories like rights of workers, rights of women, rights of SC/STs, rights of children, rights of consumers etc. In addition to relevant articles, the magazine carries important judgements and news pertaining to these categories. The idea behind the dissemination of legal information, through the magazine, is not only to make the reader aware of the law but also about the power of law and how it can be used to protect and promote the fundamental rights of people.
