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.

What people say about ProBono India

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.

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.

I Knew Kalpesh since 2005 when he was in 3rd LL.B , I found him as a vibrant restless soul who always ready do something for the society and country. As I knew him , he faced numbers of difficulties when he put his bold opinion infront of any authority despite of all odds he continue his journey towards the right and welfare of the society. And that is the result and born of Pro-bono India. I Heartily congratulate Kalpesh for his brilliant efforts and wish all the success for the same. For any Good things , I am with you. Let the Good Make Noise.

In India, doctors, teachers and advocates have been respected for their belonging to the noble-profession, wonder as to what makes them the part of this noble profession and what we mean by noble profession? When I try to search for reasons I encounter that these three professions are respected for their inherent intent of valuing humans and humanity. This is also This way, when I was told about ProBono, I felt that it is worth celebrating and to be a part of this academic movement.

I congratulate Team ProBono in general and Mr. Kumar in particular for the ProBono initiative. I am sure that it will carve a niche in educating many about valuing humanity though sacrifice and education.
