The Legal and Social Services Committee under the patronage of Hon’ble Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. V.C. Vivekanandan and guidance of Dr. Balwinder Kaur and her team has been continuously evaluating all the available avenues to reach out to the society in such pressing times. In one such opportunity the students of the Committee carried out an awareness drive to make communities aware of safe behaviours. The aim of this community outreach program was to induce adoption of safe practices to prevent the spread of Covid.
Hidayatullah National Law University has also signed an MoU with YourDost Health Solutions Pvt Ltd for providing online counselling to students to deal with the emotional stress of their academic life which has been aggravated during this pandemic period. The online wellness platform can be accessed by students to reach out to professional counsellors of the firm which will ensure confidentiality and privacy of the students. The service provider will also be conducting webinars and other programmes to help students to cope with tremendous stress they are undergoing at this time. The firm will also conduct offline programmes and meetings once the University is reopened. The YourDOST interface is being managed by the Legal Aid Cell (LAC) committee headed by Dr. Balwinder Kaur.
