We at Veritas Legal, have established our Pro Bono Program to ensure access to justice, promote the rule of law, provide legal services to those unable to afford a lawyer and to assist clients to achieve their Corporate Social Responsibility objectives.
Everyone at Veritas Legal plays an active role in the Program and our lawyers contribute voluntarily whenever they can in terms of time. We believe that time is the most precious commodity that anyone, especially we as lawyers, can contribute to causes and make a difference to ourselves in leading a fulfilled professional life. The Program will allow all the lawyers to work on identified projects during office hours and by using the office infrastructure at the expense of the firm.
Pro bono service has been an integral part of the Firm’s culture and is the backbone of our value system, which is clearly demonstrated from the Firm’s / it’s lawyer’s involvement in several cases, of which one includes: Being appointed as an Amicus Curie by the Bombay High Court in a Public Interest Litigation to assist the Division Bench of the High Court in regard to the issue regarding the right of inmates to practice their own religion during the tenure of their sentences in prisons all over India.
