Online Certificate Course by Lawctopus: ‘Litigation Basics: Reading Case Files, Making Court Briefs’ [Nov 5-25]

Law school unfortunately teaches us very little about the skills we need to practice in courts.

When you join a law office for the first time as an intern or a junior associate, it is natural to feel lost and unable to understand what’s expected of you.

Your seniors or even colleagues will not have the bandwidth to train you or explain the intricacies of the practice before assigning you complex tasks, given their unending workload.

This course is designed to equip you with the necessary skill-set to become a resource at your workplace by making a good impression on any litigation lawyer or a law firm and while arguing in Court.
