ABOUT US

about us

Studio Nilima is an action based research collective based in Guwahati, Assam, India. Inspired by the life of Nilima Dutta, we bring together lawyers, thinkers, academics, artists and students to engage with contemporary concerns of Northeast India, specifically Assam. We initiate dialogues and community engagement and explore new ways of learning, thinking, research and practice. We exist at the intersections; the intersections of law, governance and society.

Legal Services / Sarothi

Sarothi, a companion in Assamese, is an initiative of ours designed with the objective of facilitating and increasing access to justice for the marginalised and vulnerable communities of the region. As part of its mission, we have been conducting regular visits to the correctional homes of Assam in collaboration with the Assam State legal Services Authority and the District Legal Service Authorities. This program has also facilitated two legal awareness camps; one at Baksa and another at Goalpara district in Assam.
