I really enjoyed the live lectures, specially because how informative and engaging they were, I personally wouldn't mind attending them twice a week. I like the fact how detailed the drafting videos were, I also need to mention the reading modules they were extremely helpful. Overall, I couldn't be happier with the course, I enjoyed the entire experience.

Very useful, though I have worked in corporate, I haven't gotten a first-hand opportunity to understand and analyze a contract and especially understand 'why a clause is there and what's its function 'the book by Mr. Bhumesh is very crisp to understand.Miss Ankansha was very neutral in her approach while teaching as there are people from different fields that made it easier to answer and participate and the reading material for each module was very comprehensive.

We have 5-6, 90-minute long live sessions the schedule of which is announced at the start of the batch.

Most of our live sessions happen during the weekend or late evenings so that all learners (students or working professionals) can easily attend the same.

In case you miss attending a session live, you can always watch the recorded version of the same.

We suggest that you spend approximately 3-5 hours/week doing the course.

When you spend these 3-5 hours is up to you. You may spend around 40 minutes each day or do it over the weekend.

Yes, you can do the course if you can read and write English!

One of our modules explains the essential elements of a contract precisely. That should help you and is good enough to do the course.

The focus of the course is on the review, drafting, and negotiation of contracts and not on what is usually taught as Contracts I and Contracts II in law schools.

Yes, you can access the course for a total of 4 months [2 months to complete the course + 2 months to review the course].

Please note that the course is complete by the end of the 2nd month. You can even watch the recorded versions of the live sessions which are recorded for that batch only.

However, if you want to revisit and revise the material in the course, you can do that for 2 months after the completion of the course.

So the access is given for 4 months.

We encourage you to attend the live classes after thorough preparations. Just like the real charm of a live match/performance is watching it live, the real value of a live class is in attending it live! A lot of new, practical things are covered; and of course, your questions are addressed too.

However, if you miss the live class, you can watch the recorded version of the live class which is uploaded for the specific batch only.

Contract drafting and review is the bread, butter, and mayonnaise of nearly all types of lawyers: corporate lawyers, litigators, in-house counsels, and even judges. As an academician/researcher, the course will introduce you to the practical niceties of contracts.

Contracts govern business and life in many ways. Through this course, you’ll have the skill to draft these important documents!

Through this course, you’ll gain knowledge and skills which help you stand out in internships; and if you are a professional, skills that help you take up work around review and drafting of contracts.
Furthermore, a lot of what happens even in the niche fields like IPR and Sports Law involves dealing with contracts in these fields.

Many of our students have even secured freelance paid gigs, and internships around contract review and drafting. Our add-on recorded webinar on ‘How to be a legal Freelancer‘ helps in this record.

Landing a freelance job can mean that the money you spend on this course can be recovered by the time you end the course provided you spend good time and effort into doing the course, and in landing a freelance job! It’s surely possible, with the contents of the course!
Finally, Lawctopus regularly helps its students and alumni get internships and jobs. We care deeply for our students and alumni!

The focus of the course is on contract drafting, and not on drafting A, B, or C agreements.

Using the knowledge and skills you gain in this course, you’ll be able to draft nearly all types of agreements (of course, some advanced types of contracts require domain experience as well).

Also, along with this course, you get access to a quality book that has quality drafts of various types of contracts. Learners can use the same for future reference.

Allowing for downloading of material puts our work at risk of copyright violation and related misuse. Learners can easily access the material (reading modules, recorded lectures, recorded version of the live lectures, assignmens, etc.) from the Learning Management System (LMS).

Downloading of material is not allowed. Access to the material via the LMS is easy and the students are free to take notes via online/offline mediums.
