This Website makes Understanding Law Easy for You

The judicial system of the largest democracy has always been very complex. Though the system protects every individual, but the intricacies of the same & the terms lawyers use kept the general population in fear.

A year ago, this Delhi-based lawyer Srijoni Sen, took up a project to change this outlook. And Nyaaya.in was born. Launched on November 3rd, this wikipedia styled website provides information on the judicial system in an easy to understand language. The website describes itself as, “India’s first free online repository of every central and state law. Explained in simple English.”

The website has a clear mission to demystify India’s laws. - http://wp.me/p6qTaW-KL Click To Tweet

And they are doing this with interactive guides and visualization, explained in simple English.

Building it
