LawSikho, an online legal education focused edtech platform has collaborated with Warsaw Management University, Poland, UNIES Business School, Germany, and Limburg Graduate School of Business, Netherlands to launch an online LLM catering to lawyers, chartered accountants and company secretaries in Asia and Africa. To start with, two specializations in International Trade & Taxation and Business Law & Commercial Transactions are now open for admission.
These courses aim to tap into the growing remote work trend for lawyers and compliance professionals, and enable young legal professionals with cutting edge knowledge, skills and track record to access a global job market.
The LLM courses in India are very academic in nature suitable for aspiring academic researchers. As a result, the practitioners looking for more hands-on practical skills find it difficult to cope up with the ever-emerging dynamics of the legal industry. To address this gap, the LLM course designed by LawSikho focuses on practical education to hone the legal professionals with industry-friendly skills.
This program will fill the growing need for a post-graduation course for lawyers and allied professionals with legal exposure that prepare them for an ever changing world of law practice. Apart from litigating lawyers who want to develop their commercial disputes acumen, these courses will cater to lawyers who want to work in commercial transactions, banking and finance as well as in-house counsel roles, especially in organizations with international exposure.
The fact that these courses are fully online, can be accessed from anywhere, and classes are typically scheduled beyond work hours would make these LLM courses accessible for busy legal professionals and working lawyers.
