Marching towards-Access to Justice for All
Article – 39A of the Constitution of India speaks for Equal Justice and Free Legal Aid. It states that “The State shall secure that the operation of the legal system promotes justice, on a basis of equal opportunity, and shall, in particular, provide free legal aid, by suitable legislation or schemes or in any other way, to ensure that opportunities for securing justice are not denied to any citizen by reason of economic or other disabilities.”
To fulfill this mandate of Article 39-A of the Constitution and establishing a nation-wide network for providing free and comprehensive legal services to the weaker sections of the society and also to secure and promote the philosophy of justice to all, the Legal Services Authorities Act was enacted in the year 1987.
