About IDIA

IDIA Charitable Trust (IDIA or Increasing Diversity by Increasing Access to Legal Education) is a pan-India movement founded by Prof. (Dr.) Shamnad Basheer to train underprivileged students and help transform them into leading lawyers and
community advocates.

IDIA is premised on the notion that access to premier legal education empowers marginalized communities and helps them help themselves. IDIA selects and trains students from underprivileged backgrounds (IDIA Trainees) to crack top law entrance examinations in India.

Once they are admitted to top law colleges, it provides a scholarship to these students (IDIA Scholars) that comprises financial support, training and mentorship among other things.
