Next Sunday, on September 5, 2021, we’re launching a pro bono legal clinic to offer legal support to journalists of India! Our partner lawyers, Abhinav Sekhri and Sanjana Srikumar, will represent journalists who face legal threats to their reporting, whether from law enforcement authorities or from powerful private actors. Legal support, advice and assistance will also be provided. Keep an eye out for more on how to avail of completely pro bono service!
Yay! I am excited to see this roll out.
Here’s the link to the form to register: Digital Patrakar Defence Clinic Onboarding
The first clinic will be held over zoom at 11am-12pm this Sunday (Sept 5)! The expert consulting lawyer this Sunday is Abhinav Sekhri. He is an experienced practitioner specialising in criminal law, free speech and risk minimisation.
If you’re a journalist, feel free to grab this opportunity. If you’re not a journalist, let your journalist friends know!
