Are you someone who is hardworking, ambitious, looking to do well in a legal career but not getting the right guidance or opportunities?
Are you struggling to find a job that suits your ambitions and talents?
Are you being underpaid or under-used in your current job, and do not see much growth?
Are you applying and applying, giving a few interviews as well, but not quite getting the right jobs?
Have you left your first or second job unsatisfied, not getting the kind of work you actually want to do?
Maybe you are not able to put together the right profile for the jobs you want.
Maybe you are not able to communicate your worth and win the confidence of the kind of employers who can take you under their wing and make you grow.
It is a situation that a lot of law students and law graduates find themselves in. I know, because I have been helping many of them.
Do not worry. Times are tough, and you are not finding the right environment, right direction, the right wind in your sails. I have been there, time and again, and I have guided dozens of young lawyers out of situations like this.
Who should take this course
The following sets of people are eligible to apply for the dream job bootcamp:
- If you are a fresher but haven’t obtained a job, and you are ready to work hard for 3-months to drastically upgrade your skill-sets.
- If you graduated up to 2 years back and are struggling to find your feet in the legal profession or in your career.
- If you are a young practitioner who wants to change his or her area of expertise. For example, you may be a criminal litigator but want to specialize now in corporate or IP laws.
- Final year law students
Note that you need to write and speak acceptable English. We cannot train you in grammar and basic language and if you do not write correct English you will not get good legal jobs. So find an English teacher first.
What is unique about this course
Imagine that there was a factory where you could go and get the right weapons to win your battle. Or better, a gym, where you can go and train yourself to become the kind of young lawyer that every senior lawyer wants to hire. The coveted top 1% of the law graduates, that law firms are ready to pay a signing bonus to hire! Prized juniors. I call them the five-star graduates.
Each of the five stars represents something.
- The star of communication
- The star of research & legal acumen
- The star of rigor & meticulousness
- The star of integrity & organization
- The star of validation
Having one or two of these stars are usually enough to be in the top 10% of law graduates and young lawyers. Having all 5 stars will make you a rockstar that even the employer himself is also in awe of and would want to hire even if there is no vacancy.
Just think about it, do you want to become the kind of professional that an employer wants to hire even if there is no vacancy as such, and a new position is created so that the organization does not miss out on a talent like you?
Now imagine, you spend 3 months dedicatedly in a gym to develop these qualities in yourself, in a guided regime, under the observation of some experienced lawyers and trainers. Every day, you work on different skills. Everyday you sharpen your skillset. Every day, you become a little more irresistible for a potential employer.
Honestly, this is what your law college should have done. Except, the are not forward looking or practical enough or even perhaps they are not at freedom to do this. Maybe, someday they will copy us and start doing it in law colleges. But till then, I assure you no college would have ever taught you any of what I am going to now tell you about.
At iPleaders, we have built a “gym” like that. So much so that we have helped thousands of law students and professionals who do our online courses to get jobs, internships, promotions and opportunities that others in their position do not often get. All that over an online process! To be honest, we are able to deliver only a small percentage of what we want to do through an online course, but even that is hundreds of times better than anything else available in the market today. do not take my word for it. See the success stories below.
Even our interns. When they come and intern with us, they go back different people from those who walked in. Some interns reported that they benefited so much from what they learned here, that they began to top in their class. Writing a moot memorial used to be difficult, something that took a week at minimum, but not after interning at iPleaders. Suddenly it has become a much less daunting task. Writing an article for publication is supposed to take weeks right? Suddenly they can churn out articles in hours.
We have a track record of putting people’s career on a fast track.
What is the magic? How can we make people get their dream jobs on a consistent basis?
Conventional education is structured for a one-way transfer of knowledge or skills from the learner to the instructor. Our professional output and success, however, also depends on a lot of subconscious skills and mental patterns that we pick up in life, and how we apply them to our work. Conventional education is not able to address these skills. If you look at the people who are highly successful, you will notice that they are able to combine their technical knowledge with their mental strength. There is a certain strength of character, discipline and ability in them that enables them to go for and achieve things that others are too scared to even aspire for.
Internships don't address this situation - in fact, most organizations don't give interns serious accountability. If you ask people who started working as associates to compare their internship experience with that as an associate, you'll notice the difference.
This gap manifests itself in a law graduate's careers. Many don't get the jobs they want, and those who do, find it difficult to adapt as law firms don't have the time to work on how you perform tasks (despite sharing knowledge and trainings with you). The fittest and fastest people to adapt automatically survive and rise up, while the rest quit because they can't keep up, or are disillusioned or burnt out.
This bootcamp will focus on imparting the skills that enable you to secure jobs of your choice and succeed in a real-life environment.
How can we promise you results?
We have a passion for creating new ways of solving problems around access to justice. We have tested and fine-tuned the techniques that enable a young lawyer to succeed in his or her career for the past 5 years of our work on different products in the legal education and access to justice space. If you read more about us below, you will notice that we have been exploring very unconventional methods to produce results in our careers and the lives of our students and community.
For the first time, we are putting out this Dream Job Bootcamp to the public. It will have only one goal. Those who join will be trained through practical work, day-in and day-out, under our personal supervision (of course, we will have a team to help us). There will also be a lot of work you will be doing on your own, to really get a sense of how it is to work in a real job with serious accountability (for example, that of an associate at a law firm).
Ideally, much before the end of 3 months, but in the worst case scenario, within 3 months of the completion of the bootcamp, you will have one or more job offers that you are satisfied with and excited about.
If you are struggling to find a job (and willing to stretch your limits), it is a no-brainer that you should apply.
However, here are our conditions: we take in very limited people. This is because we intend to give undivided attention to each person, so that all of them achieve incredible results.
We are very selective about who is accepted in the first batch. do not worry if you do not make the cut, we will reach out to you when we start our subsequent batches in future.
Remember, we are not commencing this batch to earn money. This is really not economically rewarding for us from a business perspective, but we are doing this to kickstart a new phenomenon in legal education and training, and build the future leaders of the legal profession. It definitely sounds like a tall claim, but this is what our agenda is.

Experts review the syllabus and course content for all the courses. These experts are drawn from law firms and the industry at large. The course is conceptualised, coordinated and marketed by LawSikho, a venture that aims to make justice accessible to people from all walks of life through access to superior legal knowledge.
The legal industry knows and respects our work, and they know that anyone who finished our course and obtained certification has a certain level of knowledge and skills. If nothing else, you will be appreciated for the knowledge and skills you would acquire through our courses and would be able to demonstrate after due completion.
We recommend that you should have completed your Higher Secondary / Class XII from a recognized Board / University. In the case of foreign nationals, you should have completed the equivalent of Higher Secondary in India in your respective country. You should also be comfortable with the English language and using a computer. However, we have no formal pre-qualification requirements because we are not a University or college. Anyone who wants to learn is welcome to join our courses.
