It is true that in spite of number of legislations the fate of weaker sections has not improved. The poor persons are the silent victims of injustice. It is no more a secret that crimes against women are increasing. Dowry death cases are being registered in number throughout the country. In order to protect the weaker sections it is thought that law should be utilized as an instrument of "Socio Economic" change. Further to protect weaker section from unnecessary litigation and to reduce the mounting arrears of cases in Law courts, Law Commission recommended for the establishment of Nyaya Panchayats. The basic idea behind the Scheme of Lok Adalat is to speed up clearance of pendency of huge arrears in Law Courts, and to reduce the Costs of litigations. In this paper we study some over view of and basic concept of lok adalat.
