The Lawyers for Change programme, through its 18 Fellows today has its presence over 14 states of the country. The Fellows of this programme, all young lawyers passionate about working on issues of social justice, are taking small steps towards their goals but making sure that they leave a mark wherever they go and whatever they do.
Among the work which has been done by the Fellows, there have been 7 PILs filed in High Courts and many more cases taken up in the lower courts, there have been endeavours to engage with law colleges to interact with students and inculcate the human rights perspective in them, there have been fact findings conducted in cases of custodial torture, there have been village visits and visits to slums where awareness sessions have been held.
It is intended that through a larger coverage and these lawyers starting as pioneers in their area will work in a hub and spoke architecture by attracting other young lawyers and paralegals thus taking the culture of social justice lawyering at the grassroots. Our Fellows currently practice in the following states: Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab, Haryana, Bihar, Assam, Jharkhand, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Gujarat, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, New Delhi and Uttar Pradesh
