Why is myLaw.net giving all its courses free? – From the Founder

With the start of this New Year, I’m going to break the cardinal rule of any business – don’t give anything free. myLaw.net is open to all! We are offering you almost any course of your choice on myLaw.net for free for an entire month!

All you need to do is go to free.mylaw.net and apply for a free course and you will get access to all the content in the course of your choice. But you must be wondering why we are doing this.

When we started myLaw.net in 2010, the intent was two-fold –

(i) to help bridge the gap between practical learning/quality content and legal education; and

(ii) to provide access to learning the law to everyone.

From the start, we have been committed to these two aims and have tried various different approaches to build out in this manner.

From keeping all our courses free on myLaw.net (including courses in regional languages) for the first two years, to offering completely online degrees and diplomas with top Indian educational institutions, to creating a bouquet of over 30 certification courses (currently) with industry recognition and developed by experienced professionals from the highest echelons of the legal profession.

Through this unique journey we have evolved in innumerable ways.

For example, we realised that attention spans are quite short online so we shifted from having 45-minute video lectures to 10-minute ones to make the learning process easier and more fun for our students.

We went from longer reading materials to more crisp, precise and practical materials.

We have had to evolve in our own corner of the online learning universe at the same time as all the large online learning companies in the world – be it Coursera, edX, Udemy or Udacity.

Through all of this, our commitment has been not just to make our courses available and accessible to the maximum number of people, but also to providing the highest standard of quality, practicality and functionality.

With the confidence now of having worked with over 15,000 learners, we are ready to evolve into our next avatar over the course of this year – myLaw.net 3.0.

The next version of our learning platform and courses will take your learning experience to a whole new level.

You will be able to work seamlessly across multiple devices, interact with fellow students like never before, and give you an even bigger set of courses to choose from – including international courses and much more.

But before we start rolling this out we felt strongly that we still need to do much more to answer the questions we are still faced with constantly – What is online learning? Are our courses actually as good as we claim them to be? Are online courses practical?

As a small step in this direction, we wanted to start off 2015 by opening up our platform to everyone – so come and register for any course on our platform, and experience the magic of online learning for yourself!

The world of online learning has just begun and we look forward to the long and interesting time ahead.
