Human Rights Law Network (HRLN) is looking for lawyers to join their team.

Socio Legal Information Centre (SLIC) as a registered Society and Trust has established a division called the Human Rights Law Network (HRLN) to partner with coalitions and social movements in India for providing free legal aid and legal literacy programs throughout India.

This coalition comprises of NGOs, social movements, academics, students, activists, researchers, judges, and lawyers in 24 states in India, dedicated to the use of the legal system to advance human rights, struggle against violations, and ensure access to justice for all.
