About the National Competition on Legal Innovation and Legal Startups by RGNUL

The main idea of the National Competition on Legal Innovation and Legal Startups by RGNUL is to showcase the Legal Start Up’s, exhibit their functioning, the challenges they faced or are facing and the outcome achieved by them. The competition is an attempt to provide a platform to all the Legal Start Up’s to exhibit their ideas and work in a competitive ambience.


The field of litigation is witnessing various challenges for the last few decades especially in terms of pendency of cases, quick disposal, mounting appeals, traditional methods of lawyering that fail to address the contemporary problems and complex legal compliance’s. To address these situations, we need to devise new and better innovative mechanisms and initiatives in the said fields. Innovation and Startups in the legal field are the answer to this paradox that our Judicial System is facing.

Many young entrepreneurs have introduced startups that have come up in the legal system in the past few years especially by young, dynamic individuals. Also, the Ministries, Government Departments/bodies have initiated various innovative schemes for ensuring Justice is served to people at large. The main objective of Legal Startups is to highlight all legal startups and put them on one platform.
