The office of Satya: Pro Bono Law was officially inaugurated on Saturday at National Law University, Delhi by Justice (retired) Gita Mittal, former judge Bharat Chugh, Vice-Chancellor Prof Srikrishna Deva Rao and its founder Alina Arora, all of whom are members of its Board of Advisors..Satya: Pro Bono Law is the culmination of the vision of Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas Partner Alina Arora to establish an institution of excellence in the practice of pro bono law..The initiative was launched with a view to addressing the dearth of high-quality professional legal services for underprivileged sections of society. Satya seeks to bridge the existing divide between justice and the marginalized groups of society by building a team of highly skilled pro bono lawyers who have solemnly resolved to secure justice and equality for all. Satya will strive to bring about a holistic change to the legal system through capacity building, awareness, and research; and above all, to ensure that opportunities for securing justice are not denied to anyone by reason of economic or other disabilities. Satya's team consists of lawyers and counsellors from premier law schools and universities who are all committed to the cause of social justice. Together, they aim to drive tangible progress in the ensuring access to justice to all sections of society..Justice Mittal hailed the initiative as most opportune and went on to observe that access to justice does not simply mean access to courts; it also means educating people about their basic rights, which must also be addressed to truly close the gap between access to justice and marginalized groups. Prof Rao emphasized the importance of socially relevant legal education and how an organization like Satya will pave the road for countless law students who wish to work for social justice.
