Shamnad Basheer, Professor at National University of Juridical Sciences (NUJS) has launched an access and diversity movement to reach out to the disadvantaged sections in rural and small town India and help interested students secure admissions to the premier national law schools. By this, he hopes to bring in more diversity to the elitist homogenous environment of most law schools and thereby contribute in the long term to an increasingly diverse legal profession as well. The project is titled IDIA (Increasing Diversity by Increasing Access to Legal Education).
