Article Writing Competition on Corporate Governance by IDIA Odisha: Register by Dec 22


About IDIA Increasing Diversity by Increasing Access (IDIA) to Legal Education

IDIA helps students from underprivileged and marginalized communities to secure admission to the leading law colleges in India. 

The aim is to create lawyers from within these communities. Since law is an instrument of power, access to premier legal education empowers these communities in the long run and helps them help themselves. Indeed, as the age-old adage goes: “Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish, you feed him for a lifetime”​. They influence law students to become CHAMPS (Creative Holistic Altruistic Maverick Problem Solvers) who are change-makers and community leaders.
