Bangladesh Society for the Enforcement of Human Right (BSEHR)- Besides the law firm, Chancery Chambers, Barrister Nazmul Huda and Advocate Sigma Huda founded a registered N.G.O namely Bangladesh Society for the Enforcement of Human Right (BSEHR) which was basically formed on the reports containing child abuse and misconducts of the law enforcement commenced activities against violation of human rights. It has a wide network throughout the country and in USA and UK.

It has developed its skills in investigations and litigation. Its lawyers also collaborate with Chancery Chambers in conducting cases both the Dhaka Metropolitan Area and elsewhere in the country as and when called upon to do so.

Bangladesh Society for the Enforcement of Human Rights-BSEHR is a Human Rights organization having the objective to establish and protect Human Rights as embodied in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and to that end works to establish and perpetuate the Rule of Law and Good Governance in Bangladesh by ensuring the enforcement of fundamental rights of the citizens as guaranteed by the Constitution of the People's Republic of Bangladesh. BSEHR recognizes the adequacy of these laws in the Constitution and at the same time is convinced that due to the lack of proper enforcement the laws have been rendered ineffectual. BSEHR believes that people's lack of sufficient knowledge regarding their own rights is the root cause for the lack of proper implementation of the laws. That is why, BSEHR renders free legal aid to the poor, the oppressed and the dispossessed who are victims of injustice, illegal detention, harassment etc, with the aim to promote the administration of justice, the Rule of Law and to secure legal guarantees for basic Human Rights in Bangladesh.

To achieve this goal, BSEHR also allies itself with the government and other NGOs from time to time.
