NUJS Online Certificate Course in Criminal Litigation and Trial Advocacy [Duration: 120 Days, Fee: Rs. 5000]: Registration Open

What if you can acquire practical, real-world knowledge and skills while you are still in college before pursuing criminal law?

What will it mean for you if you get practical aspects of working as a criminal lawyer from experienced criminal lawyers?


NUJS has created an online certificate course to resolve the concerns of law students who are interested in criminal law. NUJS introduces Certificate Criminal Litigation and Trial Advocacy which for the first time brings practical insights from top criminal lawyers.

This course is designed to be a highly practical course for lawyers who are interested in building a criminal practice. Instead of merely the provisions of the law, this course focuses on ground-level realities, drafting some of the most crucial applications in criminal cases, working with the court registry, understanding cause lists, case management, handling client expectations, billing and litigation strategy.

Coverage of these areas has been undertaken after speaking to experienced litigators (working at trial courts, High Court as well as Supreme Court), senior advocates, advocates-on-record and lawyers working in litigation teams at law firms. After pursuing this course, you will have a fair level of confidence in filing important documents in connection with a criminal case, conducting criminal trials on your own and in starting out to develop an independent practice as a criminal lawyer.
