Legal Awareness Cell

The National Legal Literacy Mission with its motto, “From Ignorance to Legal Empowerment” -launched by National Legal Services Authority on 6th March 2005, is a significant step to empower the most marginalized, vulnerable, poor, disadvantaged, underprivileged persons of the society particularly women, children, and disabled person, through legal literacy by making them aware of their rights to lead a life with dignity and enjoy equality before the law. The three-way approach of the mission will focus on legal rights, education on fundamental duties, and education on the availability and benefits of legal aid.

                                            It is more important that the youths are educated about the law so that they grow up to law-abiding citizens. The Legal Awareness Cell of Mother Arts and Science College creates legal awareness among young minds and educates them about their right, duties, benefits and laws. The Legal Awareness Cell strives to make young girls aware about their constitutional legal rights & duties. It empowers them to fight gender discrimination, domestic violence, sexual harassment, dowry and injustice in social life.
