The Legal Front was conceptualised by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik to bring about unity among lawyers for betterment of society, Kanungo said and claimed that this is for the first time that such an attempt has been made.

The Front was launched by the Chief Minister at the party office on November 22, 2015. Minister of State for Law Arun Sahu had inaugurated the State office of the Front in Cuttack on January 14. Kanungo said the Front is committed to the welfare of 50,000 lawyers in the State.
