While 200+ learners have registered for the course, we want to take the conversation around the e-learning possibilities of Legal Research and Writing wider and deeper. We also want to share our insights on the first step towards legal research and writing, i.e, choosing a research topic and questions.

How do we do this? Well, in Corona times, through a webinar, of course! Welcome to our carefully crafted, sincerely attempted webinar with goals both lofty and earthy.
