Welcome to ProBono India

India’s First Platform Integrating Legal Aid & Awareness Initiatives

Founded in October 2016 with an aim to integrate legal aid and awareness initiatives – ProBono India has ventured into different avenues viz. legal aid, legal awareness, legal intervention, legal journalism, legal activism etc. – all with the underlying objective of contributing to the positive development of the society with a strong socio-legal approach.

The activities at ProBono India include an active dissemination of legal information via the medium of its official website, rolling internship programmes for law students to help them develop a holistic personality with a socio-legal approach to their professional personality, interviews with eminent personalities working at the ground-level offering insights into their successful projects, providing a platform to promote and publish the art of research and legal writing, amongst many others.

The team of ProBono India works to promote legal activism as we believe that law and society are two sides of the same coin. Law and society are so inextricably interdependent that to both need to be equally improved in order to lead the world into the desired new order. We at ProBono India believe in a better and brighter tomorrow. We believe not just in being passengers on this drive to change – rather, we aim to drive towards the change.

Integration of ProBono Legal Initiatives

There are thousands of laws in India touching various aspects. Many are not aware about some crucial laws which they are supposed to know. To cope up this situation many organizations have come up in India by way of conducting legal aid and legal awareness activities. Different organizations are working on different legal aid and legal awareness issues. There is a need of common platform which integrate these all initiatives. ProBono India has been set up to address this issue for the benefit of public at large.

The ProBono India is an excellent project to institutionalize social action lawyering which would go a long way in serving the masses of our country. I wish a grand success to all the endeavours of ProBono India.
Prof. Subir K Bhatnagar
Vice-Chancellor - RMLNLU, Lucknow
You and your team is doing great service to the humanity by engaging yourself in legal aid and start up platform to needy people. The constitutional dream of access to justice remained unrealised because intellectuals, departments of academic institutions, and those who are "well to do" did not discharge their obligation in spirit, enshrined in the fundamental duty part. Prof Upendra Baxi also insists that we need citizen animated with part III and Part IV of the Constitution. You and Gujarat Law University has taken the lead and we all are proud of you. Though legal aid is also given in various institutes, legal start up is an innovation. 
We all congratulate you and the team and wish you all the best.
Anurag Deep
Associate Professor of Law - Indian Law Institute, New Delhi
I am happy to note that Pro Bono India initiative intends to build the gap between the law and society. The interaction between law and society is very much essential as law is a social functionary. Social interactions and initiates have influenced the law making process in India. The Nirbhaya Act, Amendment to Information Technology Act, Copyright Act have been result of law and society interaction in the recent past. In this regard I wish and hope that Pro Bono initiatives would add much required fuel for smoothing the effective functioning of law in the society.
Dr. Sreenivasulu N.S
Professor - West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences
Institutionalizing pro bono lawyering is a great service to the legal profession and society. I congratulate Mr. K.L. Gupta for this noble initiative and wish it all success.
