Legal Services Day:
- It is observed on 9th November
- Article 8 of Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948 provides that “Everyone has the right or an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted by the constitution or by law.”
- Article 39 A of the Constitution of India spells out the paradigm for ensuring justice to all. The Constitutional vision of “Equal Justice and Free Legal Aid” is imperative for a nation whose millions of people are living in abject poverty. Having fundamental rights doesn’t make a country great. People should be aware of the fundamental duties and oblige them. A common man can live a dignified life, if he is given proper legal aid.
