Degree Prasad Chouhan

Chhattisgarh Degree’s transition from a social activist to a lawyer came after he was more aware of the widespread legal apathy towards atrocities against the Dalit community. Through his work at the Human Rights Law Network, he wishes to create a life for members of the Dalit community by fighting for their equality and empowerment. At the district court, he and his colleagues succeeded in obtaining an order on behalf of a tribal community of Dharamjaigarh against illegal dispossession.
