Legal Training In India

The importance of legal training and legal education in India has been ignored for long in India. After finishing the basic level graduation in law, a dominant majority of the lawyers never ever update themselves and engage in training. Even lesser are lawyers who believe in legal lifelong learning in India.

Even at the level of Bar Council of India (BCI) and Ministry of Law and Justice, sufficient attention has not been given to lifelong learning or continuing legal education in India (CLE in India).

Law is a dynamic profession that is regularly updated and if lawyers and judges do not keep themselves updated, they may not perform their duties very well. Law is also a challenging profession that requires great dedication and hard work. At times it becomes next to impossible to leave the litigation practice and engage in some sort of higher education or other trainings.

At this stage, the utility of online legal education in India becomes apparent. In India, Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB) is the leading techno legal online education and training provider. Its online legal training and education platforms are world renowned.

Further, PTLB is also the exclusive techno legal education and training provider of India that is catering the requirements of police force, lawyers, judges, corporate executives, government officers, etc. Some of the unique areas in which PTLB has world renowned domain specific expertise include cyber law, cyber security, cyber forensics, digital evidencing, online dispute resolution, e-courts, etc.

With BCI and Law Ministry taking note of the growing requirements of legal education reforms and legal training requirements, the future legal fraternity may be more interested in legal trainings and legal lifelong learning.
