IDIA scholars setting high benchmarks in law colleges apart from NLU’s


IDIA volunteers and administrators often face a recurring question from its supporters – “Do you help students get through other law schools in India, apart from the NLU’s? What happens to a student who does not make it through the NLU’s?”

LaptopNazrul Molla is an IDIA scholar from a remote village in the Sunderbans area of West Bengal. Now studying at Gangtok Law College under Sikkim University, Nazrul is the 2nd rank holder of his batch. So far, he has been performing well in academics and making the most of his experience at his law college. A reward for his commitment towards academic pursuits came recently, when the Chief Minister of Sikkim Mr. Pawan Chamling, awarded Nazrul a laptop, as a token of appreciation for his sincerity and dedication. The Sikkim Government recently distributed some laptops to meritorious students at Government schools and colleges during the “Empowerment of Student in ICT & Community Mobilization on RTE Act” program organised by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of Sikkim.

IDIA has helped many students in securing admission to not just the NLU’s but other reputed law colleges across the country. IDIA scholars studying in law schools other than the NLU’s are doing exceptionally well in their academics and a great example of it is Nazrul Molla.

We strive to make quality legal education available to the less privileged sections of the society so that young people from these sections of society may take over as community leaders and empower their community as a whole. It is not always true that good legal education can only be obtained from NLU’s – there are other reputed law colleges which provide quality legal education and IDIA makes sure that its scholars are placed in these reputed law colleges where they have an opportunity to utilize all the resources and blossom to their full potential. Students like Nazrul have proved it time and again that a student who really wants to excel in academics and carve out a great career ahead will do so regardless of the college he is studying in. In the field of law, sky is the limit for a person who wants to achieve success simply because of the vast diversity of career choices it provides.

IDIA wholeheartedly thanks the Sikkim Government for its initiative; advocate Protik Prokash Banerjee for supporting Nazrul and wishes all the best to Nazrul. We hope that he shall continue this success story and inspire many others in the state to take up the cudgel for their community through the tool of law!
