About Us

Welcome to JLF India

Established on 5th November 2021 with a plan to coordinate legitimate guide and mindfulness drives – Justice and Liberty Foundation, India has forayed into various roads with the fundamental goal of adding to the positive improvement of the general public with a focussed socio-lawful methodology.
The activities at JLF India include an active dissemination of legal information via the medium of its official website, rolling volunteer programmes for law students to help them develop a holistic personality with a socio-legal approach to their professional personality, interviews with famous personalities working at the ground-level offering experiences into their effective tasks, giving a stage to promote and publish the art of research and legal writing, amongst many others.
Our team 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 JLF India trust in a better and brighter tomorrow. We trust not simply in that frame of mind on this drive to change – rather, we expect to drive towards the change.
