The name Leagle Samiksha was picked with care to depict the values that we stand for.
The word ‘Leagle’ comes from legal and eagle, symbolic of the meticulous eagle-eye of a lawyer. ‘Samiksha’ is a Hindi word which means analysis.
We believe that these two virtues, namely, observation and analysis, add up to create a responsible and aware person.
The importance of Human Rights education and activism cannot be overstated in today’s world. We envision the legal fraternity to be empathetic towards human rights values in their undertakings with civil society. We strongly believe in the impact that early experiences during legal training can have on the kind of lawyer a student emerges to be. Hence, we focus on engaging law students from all over the country and training them to become successful lawyers in the field of human rights.
Leagle Samiksha is our little step forward to join the global movement to ensure a safe haven for humankind, especially children.
The magical formula to becoming a good lawyer has two special ingredients – impeccable analytical skills, and sound knowledge of the law. However, becoming a great lawyer also requires a third secret ingredient – the ability to listen to one’s conscience.
Leagle Samiksha is all about germinating and blossoming these three substantial skills. It has been developed with the vision of providing a stage to initiate discussions about crucial events and happenings which must be spoken about and to thoroughly scrutinise the law.
We work on three fronts:
We constantly publish blogs on cutting-edge human rights issues to spark multidisciplinary conversation amongst the legal fraternity. The purpose of the blog is to encourage dialogue. It has been mainly designed discover the diverse areas in the field of human rights. It also seeks to encourage people to observe closely how the law operates in their daily lives, and to use their words as weapons against oppression, injustice and atrocities.
Ask any lawyer and they would tell you that reading the bare acts is an inevitable essential in their life. Simultaneously, ask any law student and they would tell you what a perplexing task it is.
Bare acts are ‘all words similar, no words same’.
The purpose of the unique forum of Leagle Samiksha is to develop eagle-eyes for reading the Statutes. Additionally, it fosters keen observation of legal nuances – the difference in usage of terms within the legislation. It also facilitates the culture of questioning. Questions like – Why these differences? What changes within the meaning of those words do the lawmakers intend to convey? How does it impact the application of the law?
Leagle Samiksha periodically runs a unique 70-days Career Development Program to make human rights enthusiasts industry-ready. We are aware of the challenges faced by students due to a lack of guidance. Our program encompasses a wide range of activities and interactive sessions with the Founder. Working in close coordination with the Founder, the interns learn to research and develop professional skills in this program.
We also deliver specialised online courses on topics of International Law with a view to educate law students on courses that are not a part of the regular curriculum in law schools. These courses seek to impart theoretical and practical knowledge on specialised issues by way of enagaging workshops, group activities and informative seminars and lectures.
