History of Legal Assistance Day
The origin, history, and creator of the Legal Assistance Day are anonymous. There isn’t any mention of the year since this Day has been in celebration. However, it is the special Day of the year in which the people who would otherwise not be able to afford to the legal representation are provided with the legal assistance for free of charge. The Legal Assistance Day offers legal help for a wide range of problems, and that includes drafting legal documents, legal negotiations, and court appearances. Legal assistance is the support provided by legal professionals for free of charge to those people who are unable to afford the legal representation and access to the court system.
However, there are certain conditions as to who can access this offer of free legal representation. So only those applicants who have met certain criteria can use this one day of the year in the court without needing to pay for their case. The criteria range from having an income below a certain threshold or being sixty years of age or older. The legal assistants are those who assist the lawyers by investigating the facts, preparing the legal documents, or researching about the legal precedent. They are operating diligently behind the scenes and are continuing to assume new responsibilities in the legal offices.
