Legal Aid

Grassroots India has a cooperative relationship with several lawyers and advocates, including CLAP (Coalition for the Legal Aid to the Poor), a
consortium of lawyers who provide free services and are dedicated to justice for the poor. We routinely are referred cases involving domestic violence, sexual abuse, land dispute, abandoned women and baby girls, and various other womens’ rights violations. Due to our professional mental health counseling program, we rarely need to pursue legal action. Resolution often can be achieved through diplomacy, but in cases where resolution is not possible, a strong legal team is essential.  All legal services and case management are provided free of charge.
