About the Course

What will be the best use of your law degree? 

Making a lot of money? Or making a difference? Not to say that they are mutually exclusive but if you were to pick one, what would it be?

Did you know that in India there is only one advocate on average for every 161 inmates?

Even when we have free legal aid clinics in place, ensuring quality legal assistance to these inmates, who by the way, are supposed to be “innocent until proven guilty”, has been a challenge that remains to be overcome.

How would you feel if you acquired the right legal skills to be able to successfully defend their civil liberties and save them a lifetime of misery by helping them secure bail? Pretty amazing, we assume.

We want to help you be the voice of the voiceless and defend the indefensible, fight for the ones who have been let down by systems, and suffer misfortunes and travesty of justice. 

One of our many goals (all of them include watching you succeed) is imparting Justice Education by equipping our legal fraternity with the requisite skills to ensure free access to justice and fair trial in our country.

We wish to impart Justice Education along with Legal Education to help you achieve your true potential and change the world for the better, one person at a time.

In pursuance of the same, we had conducted a two-day workshop in December 2020 where Advocate Ashima Mandla had shared her experiences as a criminal lawyer and taught our attendees how to argue and draft bail applications by taking a thoroughly practical and experiential approach.

This is a short, self-paced course on drafting bail applications based on those lectures by Advocate Ashima Mandla, replete with a detailed Reading Resource, Assignment on drafting a bail application arising out of an FIR (inspired by a real case handled by Adv. Mandla), a sample bail application and Adv. Mandla’s draft in that very case for your self-assessment. There is another bail application drafted by another criminal lawyer for your reference.

If you are motivated enough to learn how to draft bail applications and work towards building a just society together, we will ensure that you acquire the skills through this course!
