About CAN Foundation

The CAN Foundation is an organization formed to facilitate the advancement of students and alumni associated with all National Law Universities in India. Comprised of alumni from different NLUs, this Foundation is aimed at providing financial assistance to brilliant but underprivileged individuals in the legal field. The main objective is to foster a strong relationship between the student community and established alumni, which will enable students to access diverse opportunities in various areas of law.


CAN Foundation has launched 'Vedanam' as an initiative to promote research-oriented academic writing among law students and professionals. Vedanam, the academic wing of the Foundation, provides a platform for Dhananjay and Eklavya Scholars and law students across the country to engage in academic and legal discourse on contemporary topics. The Foundation considers academic and legal discourse on relevant topics as a crucial aspect of learning to achieve proficiency in any field. It provides exposure to students and helps develop critical thinking and analytical skills. Legal literacy and increasing access to it are some of the primary objectives of the CAN Foundation since its inception. Vedanam aims to supplement legal literature on various contemporary issues and promote the Foundation's goals and vision by encouraging more students to join the Foundation.

The Foundation is grateful to its patrons, donors, and well-wishers for their continued support and blessings, which reinforces their belief in themselves and helps them achieve new heights.
