The Constitution of India visualized a society in which equal justice is made available to all members irrespective of their economic and social backgrounds. Justice in terms of society would be meaningless if only a privileged a few could access to it. Article 39(A) of the Constitution mandates to provide equal justice and free legal aid to underprivileged, down trodden and weaker sections of the society. Thus, legal service is now a journey from charity to constitutional rights. In order to achieve the goal legal services institutions like National Legal Services Authority and State Legal Services Authorities are established.
