Innocence Initiative (Pro Bono) Policy Statement
Lexcarts as an organization and an online lawyer search platform believes it is important to foster the ethic of professional obligation to provide service to the public, especially to those who cannot afford legal help. The Pro Bono Program works to connect knowledge to the real world.
Moreover, Article 14 and 22 (2) of the Constitution ensures equality before law. Also, the United Nations Sustainable Development – Goal 16 underscores the obligation of States ‘to ensure equal access to justice for all’. Keeping this in mind we at Lexcarts have initiated a Legal Pro Bono Programme.
We will certainly appreciate and recognize such efforts of lawyers & legal professionals.
The Pro Bono Program is a purely voluntary program. Lexcarts as an entity requests lawyers in the country and at Lexcarts donate few hours to public service in a way to provide free legal aid to those who cannot afford & contribute towards the uplift the weaker heads.
