Who is going to certify the course? What is the value of the course on the CV?
Unless specifically mentioned otherwise, none of our courses is recognised, accredited, or validated by any university, government or third party. We consider government regulatory standards as an impediment to offering high-quality courses we offer at an affordable cost, offering informal, non recognised courses rather than collaborating with formal universities.
This course is offered as a skill development course by a private company. LawSikho is India’s leading online legal education provider and provides high-quality legal courses that teach you how to do practical legal work as required by the industry.
For any recruiter or client, what matters the most is whether you possess the relevant skills to match their needs and serve their interests. We will train you in rare and important skills that are highly in-demand and our initiative is one of a kind.
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.
Who can enrol for the LawSikho Courses?
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.
Are hard copy study materials provided for reference, or are there only online classes?
Students of LawSikho will be provided hard copy materials within 30 days of your course commencement date.
However, online classes, videos, regulatory updates and periodic upgrades to the courses cannot be included in the hard copies. We will provide you with hard copy material for all important chapters. We keep adding many new chapters from time to time and there are restrictions on page numbers so all online material cannot be available in hard copy. We would keep adding new material online from time to time, so please do not expect all such material to be made available in the hard copy also. You can use the hard copy materials for your reference, however, we recommend that you do not exclusively rely on hard copies for cracking the assessment test and the exercises. Please refer to the online library of materials from time to time.
Note: We will send hard copy material through our service partners. We have three service partners.
1. Indian Speed Post (Provides delivery ‘anywhere in India’ under contractual service)
3. Trackon Couriers Pvt Limited
If our service partners do not have a presence in your area and want to get the hard copy, you can send us a specific request.
LawSikho will not be responsible if the speed post bounces back or hard copy material is not delivered. We will levy the courier charge on you in such a scenario.
Please visit the respective course page to learn more about the hard copy study material policy of that course.
Will international students also be sent hard copy material?
If international students require hard copy material, they need to share their correct address and we will let them know the cost of the courier which they need to pay and then the hard copy will be dispatched. This is the process because the cost of an international courier is very high compared to the domestic courier within India (for domestic courier we have no additional charges). Some international students provide us with an Indian address for couriering hard copy material. In those cases, we charge nothing extra for the courier.
How do I figure out if the course covers a specific topic I want to study?
A person can visit the official website of LawSikho and find the relevant course and see the course syllabus, learning objectives and even a list of weekly exercises.

The only way to experience the course is to take the course for a month, risk-free, as we give no questions asked and refund between the 30th and 45th day provided you attend all classes and solve all the assignments.
The refund policy may vary. We advise you to go through the refund policy given on the respective course page to know the actual refund policy applied to you.

Would Live classes start from Module 1?
Please do not expect us to teach you like college courses. Those are not effective. Our focus is on giving you a realistic experience of doing legal work. Hence you will get different exercises and assignments every week and all relevant material to solve them. Please do not worry that you have not read other associated concepts. We are recreating the experience of working in a law firm or in-house legal department, and we found that this is the kind of training that works best. Live classes will relate to the week’s assignments. You can read the modules from module 1, but we advise you to follow the courses according to where the assignments take you. By the end of the year, you would have covered all the syllabus and retained everything.
If it feels complicated and challenging midway, do not worry. The course is designed like this. You need to stick to it, hold on for dear life and ride along as you ride a roller coaster. Our responsibility is that you are satisfied and get all the results that you were promised by the end. If you are not, you can hold us responsible. But please, please trust the course design and stick to it until the course gets over.

We cannot deliver videos and periodic updates in hard copy; hence hard copy materials are not recommended for studying to attempt exams. To stay updated with the latest developments, we strongly recommend that you learn from online materials.
Every week, you will be given exercises to perform, which we will discuss in a live online classroom.

How do I get my LawSikho certificate after completing the course?

Please check the course guidelines for more details.
I am likely to have a busy schedule this year because of academics, co-curricular activities or enrollment in other courses like the CS course. Will this course be very demanding or time-consuming?
The course is designed keeping in mind the schedule of practising lawyers, working professionals, entrepreneurs and full-time students. The learnings are well spread out over a long period. There would be a specific learning objective every week, accompanied by assignments. It takes about 8-10 hours for a person of average intelligence to complete all course activities every week. You need to take this course one week at a time.
We do not guarantee that you will pass the course without putting in reasonable effort or attention. Still, the exact amount of time you would need to dedicate depends on your ability to grasp the material.
Is it possible for a person who doesn't know the law to study independently with the material given?
Yes, knowledge of the law is not a prerequisite for deriving value from the course. It is possible that what you learn in this course is entirely independent of any other course you have probably pursued or are pursuing. The course is designed keeping in mind that there will be many non-lawyers taking up this course. The only knowledge we assume is what one would expect to know after completing higher secondary school. All modules are reviewed from a high school graduate's perspective and ensured that they are effortless to understand.
You only require knowledge of the English language and basic computer skills to understand the concepts.
Is there placement or internship assistance for candidates who enrol in the course?
An active placement assistance program is available to students, including CV-writing, career guidance, and sharing of relevant job and internship opportunities. Job and internship opportunities will be shared with students on the WhatsApp group from time to time. Students who complete the exercises and perform well in those exercises and classes can be recommended to law firms, lawyers chambers and companies for jobs and internships. However, we do not guarantee any job or internship.
We have also started a career clinic for the benefit of our students. Students can visit our office in Delhi or seek career-related insights over phone or video calls on pre-designated days. More than 2000 positions have been shared with our students to date, and hundreds have got placements and internships through us. Our students have been placed in various law firms and other organisations as full-time employees and have obtained multiple opportunities for internships under the programme. How many opportunities you get will depend on your efforts in the course, and if you do the course well, you will be able to find jobs on your own.
We will also provide you with a career development course free of cost if you need it. Just ask our customer support if and when you need it after participating in at least three months of classes.
We also help you enhance your CV by writing and publishing articles and giving you networking exercises and coaching to build your professional network. Creating your professional network can make excellent opportunities available to you that you cannot even imagine today.

What is unique about LawSikho courses? Why should I not take up any other online law course provided by other websites or a University, especially if it is significantly cheaper?
How the courses are created, and its philosophy - We aim to create extraordinary lawyers and support the legal industry. You will find no other course which is as practical, provides as much personal attention to every student, or as many opportunities.
Syllabus, coverage and approach to issues - We do not spoon-feed you but give you experience what you will experience when you work at top law firms or big in-house legal departments. You will be prepared for the best and the worst. You will learn to deal with any legal issues, even those we didn’t teach you about, because that is how our course is designed.
Live Exercises - Pilots are put on simulators to practice flying before they are given an actual aircraft to fly. That is how our courses work as well. Even before you start dealing with real-life cases and matters, we train you to do such work through simulation exercises. This experience is invaluable for ambitious lawyers. Think of our courses like an online gym or a martial arts dojo for learning legal skills that will make you amazingly successful.
Personalized support - you can ask questions in the learning management system, interact with us on WhatsApp groups and even call us when you are struggling. We are here to work with you to make you succeed.
Placement assistance - Do you know any other course where you get this level of placement assistance? Law firms and companies love to hire our students because it is tough to find such highly-trained talent. Ask our graduate students! Also, we make you write articles, publish, and enhance your CV and network with many people. This provides you with next-level opportunities in your career.
Doubt-clearing weekly exercises - Doubts are cleared every week. If you can’t wait, post your doubts inside the module itself, our experts reply within one working day.

What if I want to migrate from one course to another?
Migration from one course to another is possible. Students should email their migration request to our support team at [email protected] within ten days from the enrollment date.
We will not accept any requests after ten days.
What if I want to migrate from one batch to another batch?
Yes, you can migrate from one batch to another after paying a migration fee of INR 2000/- (or as per the prescribed fee pertaining at the time of migration) and the course fee difference between the admitted batch and transferee batch if any. If migrated, the work or assignments submitted earlier by you will not be considered.
What if I am unable to complete the course in time?
A student is given a total time of 14 months from his batch commencement date to submit the minimum number of required assignments. If they fail to do so, they can submit their pending assignments after the 14th month with an extension fee of Rs 2000/-
They will get a four months grace period to submit their pending assignments after paying the late fee. Those who want to submit the assignments after 15 months from their course commencement date will not be allowed to pay late fees. They will have to migrate to the future batch within 3 years from the enrollment date after paying the migration fee and following the migration rules.
The month and year may vary as per the type of course. We suggest you check the Migration Rules of your course on the course page.
Do you conduct exams after completing the course?
Exams are conducted during the course duration only, not after the completion of the course.
Is this course recognized by any third party or Government Authority?
LawSikho courses are offered by a private company as a solution to learn practical skills. There is no recognition, no accreditation and no affiliation from the government or any University or any third party unless specifically mentioned otherwise.
What if I can’t finish the weekly exercises?
Weekly exercises are very important to learn the practical aspects for which you joined the course. You get sufficient time to complete those. In case you can’t finish them within the due date, you get an extension to complete them with a deduction of a few marks.

What if I submit all assignments but miss the MCQ?
You must complete the required number of assignments and the MCQ test to complete the course successfully. They are mandatory requirements. You won’t get the LawSikho certificate if you fail to fulfil these requirements.
How is the course helpful if it is not recognized?
There are many certified courses in the market, including LLB, a qualifying criterion for becoming a lawyer. The problem is that even after doing them, people do not have the requisite advanced level practical skills needed to succeed. You can learn these things from our courses. Our students who are already working earn over Rs 1 lakh per month on average. That should give you an idea about what is so beneficial about our courses!
Note: You can check our Government of India Recognized courses in the course section.
What is an online Live class?
An online Live class is a video conference-based class that you can attend from mobile, tablet and personal computer through an application. You can see the teacher and the teacher can see you. You can even share your screen with the teacher for comments if the teacher requests it, and the teacher can show you his or her screen. You can see other people attending the class also. There is usually a lot of discussion amongst the students and teachers in the class. It is very much like a live classroom except that you do not have to travel to access the class; you can access it on the go as long as you have internet and a device.
Can I get personal guidance in working on assignments that I find challenging?
We will point you out the relevant reading material and templates and precedences you need to solve an assignment. You can also freely discuss with other students in the course WhatsApp group. You can post queries in the learning management system as well while working on assignments. During the live sessions, you can ask questions to the expert and get your issue resolved. Sometimes it may be possible to schedule a call with evaluators and discuss with them, but this is at the discretion of the evaluator and at a time of his or her convenience. We cannot handle unlimited calls with every small question. You have to respect the time and availability of the evaluators also. For that, you already have the Learning Management System and the WhatsApp group, where you can post an unlimited number of doubts.
How is our training methodology unique and industry-proven? Is it endorsed by the legal industry in India or abroad?
Our training methodology is unique. While any outside authority does not endorse it, the success of our students speaks for itself. Our methodology is described in detail in the previous questions. The legal industry loves to hire our students who have gone through the entire training we provided. Major companies have been hiring us to train their legal teams and managerial executives with cutting edge legal courses. This is proof of our success.
Note: The Government of India has recognized some of our courses. You can find those courses and other details in the course section of our official website www.lawsikho.com
