Do you know what steps to take in case of sexual harassment?
Do you how to quash an FIR?
Do you know how to do cross-examination?
Pick up any newspaper or check out any news channel. You will see how the frequency of crimes of increased. There are more cases of sexual violence, rape, murder, mob-lynching, domestic violence, hit-and-run accidents, etc.
With such increase in crimes, there is an increase in complaints and FIR being filed. But all lawyers are not equipped to deal with such sensitive cases unless they have had proper training in criminal law.
For instance in the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment, there is an increase in the complaints being filed against the alleged perpetrators. Several lawyers are offering their services in aid of the victims. Even I wanted to be a part of the movement by offering my legal services. But I am a media lawyer. I do not have the necessary training in dealing with such cases.
That made me realise that even if I can interpret the sections, learn about the procedures and gain all the necessary theoretical knowledge, I am still ill-equipped to work in criminal law. I need the practical knowledge as well. But it takes years to hone the skills needed for a criminal lawyer. You need to work under a senior, practise for a few years and then gain the expertise.
There must be other lawyers, law students, out there who have an interest or even working in the field, but want to get a head start on the practical training. They may possess the required knowledge of the law, but without knowing the practical application, they are not able to get the desired results. With this in mind, we at LawSikho, have launched the Executive Certificate in Advanced Criminal Litigation & Trial Advocacy.
