About the Organisation:
Team Attorneylex is an online platform for law students where they can contribute their legal knowledge and get recognised for their contribution.
Along with the other activities, the endeavour is to deliver legal help to the sectors of society that are unable to access existing legal services due to illiteracy and poor economic conditions.
About the Competition:
The objective of this competition is to promote the importance of the latest landmark judgment passed by the Supreme Court of India.
