About The District Legal Services Authority, Williamnagar

The District Legal Services Authority, Williamnagar (“DLSA”) has been established under the aegis of the Meghalaya State Legal Service Authority (“MSLSA”). The District & Sessions Judge is the Chairman and the Chief Judicial Magistrate is the Secretary of the District Legal Services Authority, East Garo Hills. The DLSA plays a key role in enhancing the access to justice, legal aid and helping citizens realise their rights. It achieves this by driving key programs and harnessing a network of para legal volunteers (PLVs).

The motto of the DLSA is “Access to Justice For All”. In a district such as East Garo Hills which has been recently separated and where developmental activities are underway, the DLSA has a key role to play in ensuring that rights, equity and justice remain the cornerstone for growth and development. In order to achieve this goal, the DLSA organises a range of activities from awareness programs, to campaigns, to training and sensitisation to having PLVs man legal care and support centers as well as providing a “port of first call” response to people in need of legal aid or accessing basic legal services.
