Increasing Diversity by Increasing Access to Legal Education (IDIA) is a non-profit organization working in India which aims to empower underprivileged children by giving them access to quality legal education. IDIA was envisioned by the late Prof. (Dr.) Shamnad Basheer in the year 2010 from West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences. It is a pan-Indian, student-run movement to train underprivileged students and help them transform into leading lawyers and community advocates.
To ensure that the underprivileged communities can empower themselves through legal education, IDIA student volunteers conduct sensitizations across India to:
- Spread awareness among underprivileged children about opportunities in pursuing law as a career
- Select promising students and provide training for law entrance examinations, including the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT)
- Provide financial aid and mentorship to underprivileged children once they secure an admission to a leading law school.
The different chapters of IDIA also organize fundraising events for the IDIA Charitable Trust.
