Mangaluru: A revolutionary idea of making the services of lawyers available to the citizens of Dakshina Kannada at the push of a button has been conceptualized in the form of a mobile application by a city based lawyer. ‘Legall’ mobile app which will help people in legal matters was launched in SDM Law School auditorium on Saturday, October 22 by advocate and app founder Udaya Prakash Muliya.

‘Legall’ (read as league-all, meaning Legal for All) is an app available for Android and IOS platforms for users to inform themselves about state and central acts, international relations, property law, help in legal processes and finding a lawyer based on location. Information on laws and acts according to the field are available in the PDF format making it easier to access and read.

According to CEO and Founder of ‘Legall’ Udaya Prakash, this app will make it easier for people seeking legal help in any matter and find a lawyer who can help. “Usually, a person who needs legal help has to do research online regarding the topic and then search for a lawyer again sitting before a computer. This can be hectic and tiresome, so we devised this mobile application so that the person can find a solution with a few scrolls and touches on his/her mobile screen”, he said.

“The idea of making an app hit me when one of my friends from Karwar wanted urgent legal help, but I did not know anyone personally in that city. I wanted to find him a lawyer who could effectively deal with his case and I could not find a lawyer for him on the same ground, because the competency level of the lawyer was not displayed on the search engine”, He said while describing how the idea of this app struck him.

In a presentation made to the gathering of lawyers and commoners at the venue, Udaya Prakash mentioned that the name, place and popularity of the lawyer will be displayed in ‘Find a Lawyer’ category along with reviews on the selected lawyers. “With the introduction of this app, my aim is to make legal service available for all and hence the name ‘LegAll’, Uday added.

Dakshina Kannada District and Sessions Judge C M Joshi spoke on the occasion about the implications of Legall app and how it can help the users. “These days, mobile apps have made it possible to travel, book hotels, receive health expertise and maintain finances at our fingertips. Certain apps like RedBus and IRCTC has made it possible to travel without a printed ticket just by booking tickets online. The introduction of mobile apps has made it possible to take a leap in technology and ease of access”, Joshi said.

He went on to say, “In an age of such revolutionary changes, the judicial fraternity must not be left behind. The introduction of Legall app is a leap forward for the advocates to provide a lending hand for those in indeed of legal help. An added benefit for the lawyers is that there will not be stagnancy in their growth and develop competency among them.”

Uday Prakash Muliya and C M Joshi then released the app for the public.
