The National Legal Services Day is celebrated on 9th November to spread awareness for ensuring reasonable fair and justice procedure for all citizens.
- National Legal Services Day (NLSD) was first started by Supreme Court of India in 1995 to provide help and support to poor and weaker sections of the society.
Free legal services are provided in matters before Civil, Criminal and Revenue Courts, Tribunals or any other authority exercising judicial or quasi-judicial functions.
Article 39 A of the Constitution provides for free legal aid to the poor and weaker sections of the society, to promote justice based on equal opportunity. Article 14 and Article 22 (1), obligates State to ensure equality before the law.
