The Legal Bites website is registered as an Establishment under Shop and Establishment Act. It offers a free and easy-to-use custom search engine to find notes, cases, codes and informative articles and interviews empowering people to conduct their own online legal research without any training in legal research techniques.
Mayank Shekhar, Founder, CEO
The idea of devising a one-stop knowledge portal came to my mind when I realized that there was a scarcity of such a platform where a law student could gather all relevant sources of knowledge. I was facing a lot of difficulties in searching for articles, events, interviews, discussions, course material, internship opportunities, and everything else that a law student requires to develop and enhance a career in the profession of law. Most online portals charged money for registrations and demanded irrelevant contact details. My silence had raised so loud that decibel had soared beyond their limits.
Thus came into existence – Legal Bites – a one-stop knowledge portal and a community of information for legal practitioners, students and all other stakeholders of this profession, free of charge.
