Increasing Diversity by Increasing Access to Legal Education commonly abbreviated as IDIA is a non-profit organization working in India, which was founded by Late Prof. (Dr.) Shamnad Basheer.
The project is run by student volunteers from various law schools to identify marginalized students with an aptitude for the study of law. It then trains these selected students through a rigorous program for the leading law entrance examination. Once selected to the top law schools, IDIA arranges for sponsorships/scholarships and mentorship schemes to help candidates blossom to their full potential and take their rightful places as leading lawyers and community advocates. IDIA comprises around 20 state chapters, the UP Chapter being one of them. The student volunteers led by team leaders work tirelessly to realize the aims of IDIA in and around the UP region.

Publications and writings are an important part of a law student’s life. The session would entail tips and tricks on how to improve legal writing. The discussion would primarily focus on the pre-writing stipulations, specificities of the writing procedure, and how to approach publishers.
