The Law Blog


Utilising the vast inter-connecting opportunity put forward by the information era, The Law Blog (https://thelawblog.in/) aims at spreading law-related information amongst the netizens, and thereby make small contributions to the developmental process as a whole.

The Law Blog, as a platform, aims at not only spreading information but also creating stakeholders for digital equality and access. The Law Blog has been the starting point of a number of initiatives aimed at training students and legal professionals in the vital art of blogging with a specific emphasis on the social change-making process.

We, at The Law Blog, visualise a more inclusive and democratic blogosphere as a necessary precursor to a better-informed citizenry. The mission of The Law Blog is two-fold. The first and primary mission of TLB is making the blogosphere more inclusive and democratic by empowering more and more people to participate in it. Towards this end, TLB runs its WFAC programme which aims at producing future leaders of the blogosphere. The second mission which TLB is committed to is using blogosphere (and blog posts) to achieve the goal of a better-informed society by the way of online dissemination of quality information.

Recently, it was featured in the 'Feedspot List of Top 40 Indian Law Blogs' with 25th rank!
