About the Opportunity

The Access to Justice network comprises practicing lawyers, law students, community-based organizations, and legal aid clinics from educational institutions across the country who volunteer with Nyaaya and play an instrumental role in removing barriers to access to justice.

They first launched the Access to Justice network to facilitate a prompt and smooth response to our WhatsApp-based legal helpline (Ask Nyaaya). Since then, the network has evolved into a one-of-a-kind platform for lawyers and law students, and social development professionals to share their work, learnings, and expertise.
