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 an increase in crimes, there is an increase in complaints and FIR being filed and criminal trials. But all lawyers are not equipped to deal with such sensitive cases unless they have had proper training in criminal law.
For instance, a media or cyber lawyer may not be in a position to advise or represent a victim or accused, in cases of fraud, harassment, assault, etc. If your personal opinions against the central or state government, expressed on social media has resulted in criminal defamation charges being brought up against you, then you need an expert criminal lawyer.
All qualified lawyers can interpret the sections, learn about the procedures and gain all the necessary theoretical knowledge of criminal law, yet still be ill-equipped to work in criminal law. It takes years to hone the skills for a criminal lawyer. You need to work under a senior, practise for a few years and then gain the expertise.
There are lawyers, law students, out there who have an academic interest or even want to work in the field. But they want to get a head start on the practical training, before practicing under a senior. With this in mind, we at LawSikho, have launched the Executive Certificate in Advanced Criminal Litigation & Trial Advocacy.
