NotJustLex is launching an online certificate course in Sports Law in India for law students and young lawyers.
Course Designer and Moderator: Abhishek Sinha, Founder, NotJustLex
Abhishek Sinha, is a dual qualified (England & Wales and India) corporate lawyer with a post-qualification experience of more than 14 years. Prior to resigning as an Equity Partner from Khaitan & Co, he was a ‘Partner’ at Shardul Amarchand, Mumbai. He started his career at a leading law firm in Mumbai (DSK Legal) and later joined the Mumbai office of AZB & Partners. In the year 2012, he was seconded to Morrison & Foerster, Tokyo as an ‘International Visiting Attorney’.
To satisfy his academic inclination, in addition to his legal practice, Abhishek has been a visiting lecturer at ILS Law College (Pune), and Government Law College (Mumbai). He has also handled various academic assignments at several law colleges, including NUALS, Kochi, and NALSAR, Hyderabad.
Last year, Abhishek resigned from Khaitan & Co, to set up his own academic venture, “NotJustLex”. NotJustLex has been founded for the benefit of young lawyers and law students, with the intent to bridge the gap between theoretical learning and the expectations of clients, law firms, and corporates.

How’s NotJustLex Different?
Learning will primarily be through engagement with the participants. Each learning module will be conducted through naturally moderated sessions. We intend to facilitate a process of collective analysis and learning. It’s a fun way to learn the law. We have been testing this approach for sometime now in our classroom sessions. Results have been fabulous. For the very first time, we are going online.
All the sessions will be moderated through live video interactive streaming.
A session will not have more than 15 participants. We understand that this may be strenuous on us as we will have to do the same session with several batches during the day. But we are happy to do so, to make sure that we deliver what we promise. Merely a good reach is not our aim. We will always move away from anything which has the potential of affecting the quality of learning.
There’s no prior reading required. No expectation of note-taking. What we discuss is what we learn.
We will not be sharing the recorded video sessions with any of the participants.
They have to attend all the live video sessions. However, we will be available to clarify doubts that the participants may have during and even after the completion of the course. We are just an email away!
Participants will be assessed on the basis of their participation in sessions and exercises which we will be conducting during the term of the course.
At the end of the course, we will be conducting a one-on-one feedback session with each participant over a video call.
