In October 2008, Symbiosis Law School (SIU) and the City University of New York School of Law (CUNY Law) teamed up to design a program to increase access to justice in New York City and in Pune. Both prestigious institutions, well-known for their excellence in legal education, are diligently working to identify and implement schemes to assist the ever-growing number of Puneites and New Yorkers who lack access to education. Given each institution’s deep commitment to social justice, the collaboration has already begun to produce positive results.
