Online Legal Education In India

Kunal Koel

Legal education in India is in the process of transformation. Law colleges and faculties are in the process of being streamlined by the government of India. This would prove to be a boon for the legal community of India. However, not every individual who is interested in gaining knowledge of law can be a law student of a law college or faculty. At the same time there are financial, territorial, physical and many more barriers for getting good legal knowledge. The use of online legal education is a blessing for all those who wish to gain legal knowledge without attending a law college in person.

Information and communication technology (ICT) related laws, regulations and requirements have further posed many challenges before the legal education providers. Barring few good national law schools and law faculties, most of the legal institutions are either providing no cyber law related courses or are providing the most basic level cyber law courses. There is a clear gap between the demand and supply of cyber law professionals.

Some good options for law students and legal professionals in this regard are the initiatives managed by Perry4Law Techno-Legal base (PTLB). These include cyber law training, coaching and internship, bar examinations of India, continuing legal education in India, etc. If you wish to convert your theoretical knowledge into practical acumen, consider enrolling to these courses.
